Milk Bottle Christmas Tree Ornament

Here is one of many Christmas crafts we have planned. They turned out so cute we had to share this idea early.



Here is what we used:
Plastic Milk Bottle
Cookie cutter
Pictures printed on computer paper
Modge podge ( you can make your own one part white glue two parts warm water, mix)
Paint Brush
Hole puncher
String or Twine

First I cut open a clean gallon size milk bottle.  Cut out the two flat sides. I got two stars out of each bottle.

We took the flat plastic pieces and traced a star cookie cutter and cut  the star out.

I borrowed the pictures from their parents facebook pages. I just opened up the pictures and hit print. Then placed the plastic star  over their faces, traced it, and cut it out.

Next I used a paint brush to modge podge the plastic star, placed photo star on top and modge podge over the top of it.

The kids used glue bottles and put a little glue on each corner. Then added glitter.

I punched a hole on the top of each and added a string.

DYI Sensory Table Snow

Because we don’t have enough already 😉 We thought we would give making our own a try.


Here is what you need:
4 disposal diapers
4 cups of water
Glitter (optional)

This was so easy cut open the clean diapers and pull out the lining.Then add water and glitter. Snow that won’t melt.

Update we had try try a few more ideas

Blue ice

And we wanted to see how much water this would hold
Apparently a lot! We filled this bowl to the top and it was still a gel consistency.

Make Your Own Sprinkles

This is a tip every parent should know. Who dosn’t like sprinkles? I am all about cheap and easy 😉

Make you own sprinkles

Here is what you need:
Food coloring
A plastic baggie

That is it! Put about a 1/4 cup sugar in a baggie and a drop off food coloring.  Close the bag and mix and/or shake tell mixed. If you want a darker color add more you will need to let it dry a while. Pour out on a plate to dry.
