Christmas is just a month away so let us start making some Christmas art.
Footprint Christmas Tree Art
My toddler is too young to paint his own foot so the elder brother helped him with it. Make sure to have a damp cloth nearby so you can wipe the paint off your little kid’s foot or you’ll have a lot of mess to clean up later.
I helped to stamp his painted foot on a piece of paper and wipe clean his foot.
The elder brother proceeded to paint the other foot.
And I helped to stamp it next to the previous footprint.
The elder brother completed the artwork by painting a star at the top and some dots as the Christmas tree ornaments while the little boy played with the paintbrush.
As simple as that, our footprint Christmas tree art is ready 😀
Victoria of Reuse Craft shared with us this her kids’ lovely Cardboard Christmas Tree using painted cardboard, recycled beads, toilet paper roll covered with fabric scraps and a star made out of an empty coffee capsule.

Come Christmas, all I can think of is a wonderful winter wonderland. Let’s get some paper plate and ‘build’ a cute snowman 🙂
Paper Plate Snowman
Glue two paper plates together. Put cloth pegs to secure it until the glue dries up.
I cut a carrot out of an orange foam for the nose. Glue it onto the snowman.
I cut circles out of green foam for the buttons. See my boy trying to photograph himself pasting the buttons here. He's learning to take over my job! 😀
Use a hole punch to punch out tiny dots for the mouth.
I use felt for the scarf, pipe cleaner for the hands and foam and ribbon for the ear muffs. The snowman is ready to cheer up your wall. If you wish to convert it into a mobile, just do two of it and paste it back to back. Tie a string over it and hang. Nice 😀

Remember I did a gingerbread man using cork sheets? Well, we can always improvise and use craft foam instead. Always remember to do the same on both sides if you intend to hang it as a Christmas tree ornament. Here, I use glitter pen to line my gingerbread man. This is yet another very simple project to be working with the kids. 🙂
