After the children went to bed tonight, I started working on this year's special Christmas ornaments. It's time to hit the ground running, after all.
I really like our fun foam, gingerbread men, from two years ago...
...and so decided to return to fun foam this year, but with a snowman theme.
To make them, I cut four circles out of white foam - 2 small circles, about 1 and 3/4'' in diameter, one medium circle, about 2 and 1/4'' in diameter, and a large circle, 2 and 3/4'' in diameter. I cut the center out one of the small circles, to make a ring, and cut two, brown, fun foam arms, and three, black, pieces of coal.
I printed an 8x10 picture from today's Thanksgiving dinner, and cut out the children's faces from that...
...gluing them onto the small circles...
...and then topping them with the ring frames, before gluing the rest of the snowmen together.
Once they're dry, I'll be able to use a needle to poke a hole near the top for a hook, and they'll be ready this year's tree, even if I'm not quite.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
