Today, I am turning the crafting over to the kids. They make ornaments for the family each year, and this year its melty bead ornaments. As they are getting a little older the crafts are getting a little more advanced and by advanced I mean they have moved beyond foam sticker crafts. On the 6th day of Christmas my true loves made for me…Beaded Ornaments.
Melty beads are a great activity to keep little hands busy. Plus they are an excellent fine motor activity. My oldest is in charge of making sure that there is a way to hang the ornaments. My youngest makes multi-colour ornaments, and my oldest makes ones with a pattern. It’s a great activity for both ages which I love. The pressure is on for me though because I have to iron them, and I have knocked over more than one!
