Hey there party people!!

It’s that time again – the Kid-Made Ornament series kick-off!!

I just gave you a little sneak peek the other day of the great line up of bloggers we have signed up, that will be part of this ah-mazing series this year – are you blown away?!  I am, and I can’t wait to kick it off with these little washi tape trees.





This year, like last year, all of the Kid-Made Ornaments are inspired by children’s books.

So, grab your kiddo, and your kiddo’s favorite book, and let’s get to craftin’, shall we?!

For the next 10 days (kinda’), November 30th-December 4th & December 7th-10th, we will have several (70+) new kid-made ornaments each day.

 

So, let’s get to it.

This year we were inspired by the children’s book Dream Snow by Eric Carle – with so many lovely colors & the collage effect of the illustrations, we thought the images really looked like colored tape and reminded us of the colorful washi tape we had laying around.

They are so adorable, and the kiddos & I loved making them.  Plus they are super simple to make and work all those fine motor skills too.

Here’s how to make it:

Print out the template on white cardstock, then cut it out.

Have the kiddos tape tape up the trees in rows, in coordinating tape (or non-coordinating) tape.

Tape each side, one side at a time, trimming the tape as you go.

Once all 4 sides are taped up, cut a slit down the top of one tree, and a slit up the bottom of the other.

Using a hole punch, punch a hole in the top of the tree that has the slit on the bottom.  String the twine through, knot & loop it.

Intersect the two trees.
