Annika has been really insistent on doing crafts lately, mostly due to a book she found at the library about making ornaments. I regret letting her take it out, not because I don't want to do crafts, or even because I don't want a ton of homemade ornaments on my tree (although those are both true to a certain degree), but mostly because a book of 30 or more crafts, most of which needed materials we didn't have, was just overwhelming, for both of us. She wanted to do them all, right away. I quickly returned the book to the library, and decided it would be better for me to find appropriate crafts (ones that we had the required materials for), one at a time, and do them with her. Hence, the popsicle stick snowflakes.
I used a glue gun to glue the popsicle sticks together (Annika chose her configuration, and I did mine and Emmett's), and then we painted them white. Annika added glitter and buttons to hers as well. Then we tied on ribbons for hanging. I think they turned out really cute. I collect snowflake ornaments and other snowflake-themed items, so they fit right in with our Christmas decor!
