Beautiful kids crafts and project. Create the trunks in peace and lay out the colours for each one, then the kids can go to work, and you can add the finshing touches (like owls etc) when they are fast asleep! A family masterpiece
Santa's Beard Countdown to Christmas Calendar. Perfect for kids to work on fine motor & cutting skills. Maybe a snowman to countdown to winter/Christmas break. Or a flower or spring item with wavy lines for Spring break countdown.
Very simple and sweet. I love that the original post says, "without the religious overtones this could be fun - maybe moving a gnome or star?" Sure, because why would we want religious overtones on Christmas -- you know, CHRIST'S MASS?
