Christmas Art Projects

Throughout this week, the kids and I created the Christmas tree above. The bottom and third row up are Gracie's handprints (she put a print in the middle of nowhere and we made due). The second row up is Bee's, and the to two are Jerry's. I added the glitter star, and the girls put the jewels on for the ornaments.

When Josey was here for Thanksgiving, she sent Daddy and I out on a date and made foot and hand print angels with all three kids. I found frames that will fit them at work (that I will never use at work) and brought them home. I discovered that the mats looked bad with them, as they were off white so I had the kids paint them in the colors they used for their angel. Gracie painted 3/4 of the mat, Bee painted the paper I put under the mat, and I didn't even try with Jerry! I painted Bee and Jerry's and put them in the frames. I think they look great! I plan on putting them either above our t.v. or in the hallway.

P.S. This is where I got the Christmas tree picture idea.
