Advent Day 5

Isn't it adorable? Jada and I had a blast doing this activity. I got the idea from The Shafer Family's Blog. Did I ever mention just how awesome her blog is? Well it really is. If you have a toddler you really should check it out.

All you need is a tree form, toothpicks and gum drops. Lots and lots of gum drops depending on the size you get for your tree form.

First you will need to break your toothpicks in half because at the top of your tree form (from Michael's) is not as deep and your toothpicks will poke through to the other side.

Then let your toddler loose and enjoy. Jada knew what to do I didn't need to show her. I think because we have done some skewer pushing in the past.

Do you see what I see? a little girl sampling her art work?

This activity was so much fun and the end result was adorable.

All finished. A few wet from being licked but that just adds to it's character lol

My 2 year old and I tried this craft yesterday- it's already destroyed today! I made the mistake of using gum drops! Live and Learn- spice drops next time! Thanks for sharing your cute craft!

I linked to your blog, not sure how to show you that! :)
