Make Something Day

We honor Buy Nothing Day today, and we have our own tradition of turning it into Make Something Day. Specifically, Christmas ornaments. The craft will change with the years and skill levels of kids, but the idea remains the same: create some new homemade Christmas ornaments each year to add to our tree. And perhaps to give away.

This year, our theme is decorating pine cones. We have glitter glue, glitter spray paint, a glue gun, some felt and googly eyes and fake hair and pipe cleaners…. should be interesting to see what we end up with.

We had a heavy frost this morning, heaviest I’ve seen in a long time, and we went out for a morning walk around our property to take pictures. Three of us had cameras, and there are distinct and interesting differences in the results.
