Cute Christmas craft to do with the kiddos

M saw a picture of a craft project she wanted to try. Here's how she recycled some 2 liter bottles. I think they turned out pretty cute!

There on the tips of fair fresh flowers feedeth he; How joyous his neigh,
there in the midst of sacred pollen hidden, all hidden he; how joyous his neigh

Lol Kayella! M had a blast making them. DH did the cutting and hot glue, she painted. I have a splinted hand or you bet I'd have made one too!

Here's the direction sheet she brought home from the library

those are cool. I'd put some sand in the bottom before sealing them so they stay weighted upright where you want them to.

your daughter has a steady hand to paint that well.

Good thinking Caroline. When she makes more I will do that! Pretty sure that's what grandparents are getting from her lol.

DH did outlines for her on the b&w part and a couple touch ups after. She did the rest. She's much more artsy than I am and has always loved to color & paint. She will choose sitting with a pad of paper and colored pencils over most other toys.

Any chance you could bottle some of that for my DS?
I'll even pay S&H!
