Hey there Design Dazzle readers! I’m Ashley from Apples 4 Bookworms and I can’t believe it’s already NOVEMBER! I love the holiday season and I love to create fun things for my three little kiddos. It always seems like this time of year is CRAZY busy and full of traveling. So, I created a busy bag my kids can use in the car (on a cookie sheet on their lap) or while I’m busy doing Thanksgiving and Christmas “stuff”.
With this busy bag the kids can build their own Christmas Tree!
I made these cards with an assortment of different combinations of ornaments and presents for the kids to follow.
Yellow, Blue, Green, and Red Pom- Poms
Stars (found these here)
Presents (found those at Dollar Tree)
I cut out a Christmas Tree out of the green felt. Sewed it onto a red rectangle. Then, I sewed a back on, to hide the stitches. 🙂
So, the kids follow the cards to build their Christmas Tree! Fun!
