Recapping Christmas #2 Tree Ornaments

We made some very simple ornaments to decorate the tree. Used red pipe cleaners (not called that now-a-days... called "chenille stems!! Guess I need to enter the modern world!), red, green, silver beads, silver bells and some letter beads. Once I anchored the end with a silver bell, AA was off and running. She cranked out dozens of these ornaments and couldn't have been happier. Her demanding command to have me lift her higher so that she could put them on the tree herself got a little much.... but... hey, she's three! We had fun!
Here's a similar craft made with the same materials (could make them theme colors for birthday favors too) and a pipe cleaner candy cane ornament (could be used for a package decoration with gift tag).






Very simple and fun to make together.

LOL we did a project like that this year. I was wondering if anyone other then me had noticed that pipe cleaners are not called pipe cleaners, when did that happen?

What a great activity to do with AA. I think these are just fantastic and they will be a memory for years to come!
