A Berry Sparkly Ornament Craft

C's little hands have been itching to get ahold of the assortment of Christmas colored glitter glue, that came in Aunt Esther's Christmas box. She was thrilled when I pulled out Siobhan Ciminera's Christmas is Here!

Not only is it an easy reader, Christmas story, featuring Strawberry Shortcake and her pals (already enough to please the heart of a certain five year old), but it has instructions at the back for making a glitter covered, strawberry shaped ornament, perfect for any glitter obsessed, Strawberry Shortcake fan.

The craft took us a little longer, for drying time, because we used glitter glue instead of the sprinkle on kind, on top of a glue stick spread strawberry, as suggested in the book. We had to wait for one side of the strawberry to dry completely, before we could sparkle up the other. Luckily there's enough distraction at this time of year, that C didn't mind the wait.

It's great to be a homeschooler.

I looks like a strawberry queen with a stem crown. Glitter activities are always fun for little ones.

C did a good job on coloring - Anna could take lessons from her. I noticed that glittery glue is not "gentle" on copy paper resulting in some disappointments here.
