Today The Library Adventure is taking part in a fun project that a group of over 50 bloggers have put together. It is 20 Days of Kid-Made Ornaments! The other two blogs sharing a kid made ornament today are Something 2 Offer and Learn with Play at Home. Mama Miss is our hostess, be sure to check out the linky of all the kid-made Christmas ornaments linked up at her blog.
Our kid-made ornament is a printable. Your kids can cut the pages out, put the ornament together, and then fill it in. This would make a fun story time or group activity.
Just a note: My kids have not put theirs together, I put this sample together because we have all been sick all week. I’ll update the post when they are well enough to do theirs.
To make your own ornament, you will need to download the printable PDF page. It looks like this (minus the watermark):
- Cut along the red oulines.
- Fold the first rectangle in half (with the blank side IN), this is your cover. Set aside.
- Fold the second and third rectangles in half, blank sides OUT.
- Glue the back of the “My Favorites” page to the back of the “I’m Thankful For” page.
- Fold the pages in and glue the cover to the first and last page.
- Punch a hole in the top left corner of your book and string a ribbon through for hanging.
Some extra photos to help you see how it is put together:
