This is about my family while we make crafts, raise chickens, try to eat healthy, and just be happy. I try to bring a mix between Montessori and Waldorf education into my home for my 4 beautiful children and give them the love of arts and crafts in our daily life.

Sparkling Christmas Tree Ornaments
My girls love glitter. They could put glitter on everything if I let them. For these ornaments I cut half circles out of card stock and glued them into a cone. I glued ribbon with a small knot in it on the inside of the cone for hanging. I did the prep work a head of time to keep everyone happy once we sat down to the craft table. My girls are 3 and 4 years old. My 4 year old is very good with her hands, but I still find that it keeps her interest more if I do the prep work when there is drying time involved.
Once the cones are done I hand them over to the girls and let them do all they want to them. They painted white glue all over the outside of the cone and then held it over the glitter bowl.
To add a bit more bling they added some sequence with dabs of glue around the ornament. Once they dry they can go right on to the tree or to a Grandma:)
This is how my Coton de Teluer and our kitten sleep all the time now. They are the best of friends.
