Christmas Party Idea!
 Seasonal Popular Post RERUN Fun!
{Previously Posted on 11/28/15}

Today I want to share a little fun idea that we did when our kids were little. When there is a party or an after school get together, a fun and easy way to keep all our children busy and happy is to set up a Christmas craft table. Face it, as teachers if it is one thing we spend our money on is school supplies! We would set up a little tree in the hallway or living room of a friend's house and all bring left over scrapbook paper, tape, glue, Christmas stickers, ribbons, markers, crayons, etc. and let the children decorate the tree however they see fit. This gave the adults time to relax, unwind and enjoy each other's company!

Add an old table cloth, a tree skirt, some Christmas boxes, a few Christmas extras like a Count Down Snowman and a Christmas mailbox and you're all set up in 10 minutes flat. But you kids will love it! We would slice up old scrapbook paper for links and copy some ornaments for them to cut and color, busy hands and hearts create less behavior problems. I have created a page of ornaments for you to print and copy, if you slice them into squares ahead of time, it makes it easier to share.

Taping Ribbons and Hooks Make It Easier To Hang Their Creations!
These ribbon hooks were very inexpensive at Wal*Mart a few years ago and they never seem to run out. I keep them in a bag with all my Christmas hooks and ribbons and I've yet to deplete my supply!
