Christmas Fun with the Kids!

We are having a fun Christmas season with the kids here in GA! Lots of fun things to do and the kids are both at such a great age where they enjoy it all so much! Salt dough ornaments- This was fun to do with the kids and even daddy helped us decorate some! Here is the recipe I followed that I found on the internet- 2 cups flour, 1 cup salt, 3/4 cup water - mix and kneed into ball and then roll out on a floured surface and use cookie cutters to make the shapes. Use a straw to poke a hole in the top of each so you can put some ribbon through to hang them. Cook in oven at about 200 for a few hours until all the moisture is out. Paint, use glitter and markers to decorate!
Santa hand prints- AJ made these one night for her teachers! Just paint bottom of the palm and thumb red, the middle pink and rest of the fingers white and push down on paper! Use a white finger print on the tip of the hat!
We painted popsicle stick trees and decorated them with glitter and a star and we painted our own trees on paper! I think we can tell which one Dylan and AJ did! :)
And of course we baked cookies!!!
