The One in Which She Does Crafts

Gather necessary materials. This would consist of foam cone things, toothpicks and gumdrops. Copious amounts of gumdrops. Also a large cup of coffee for Mama. That one is a deal breaker.

Break toothpicks in half (at least). Randomly poke into floral cone thing. Poke gumdrop onto toothpick. Be sure to taste each of the colors before starting, not sure why, but seems to make process more enjoyable.

Listen to holiday music and poke, poke, poke. Boogie Woogie Santa Claus is ideal gumdrop tree making music, by the way.

Display gumdrop trees proudly! Ignore gaps, see the bigger picture. (Plus we ran out of gumdrops.)

Next project...a gingerbread house. Ahem. This may require several cups of coffee for Mama.


  1. what cute little trees. I have checked the gingerbread house of our list of things to do already. It lasted a whole 2 days I think before being consumed.

  2. ah, so cute!

    (I like your shirt, too!) :)

  3. Ok, you are the coolest mom. I haven't done any crafts yet with my boys. The gumdrop trees look fun, maybe we'll do that too. I'm not ambitious enough for gingerbread houses!

  4. Very cute trees, very cute pics, very cute girls. Nuff said.

  5. You're a fun mom, this is a great kid-tastic kind of activity. I bought a gingerbread house kit back in October and haven't been able to bring myself to get it out, but tonight is the night.

  6. Such a fun thing to do and I love that great pictue of you and Annelise!

  7. Don't you love craft time?! You look SO CUTE in that picture w/ A.

  8. HaHaHa-fun mom?!? Not so sure about that...since this was the first, and so far only holiday "craft", but thanks!

    I completely copied the idea from Crystal--thanks girl!

  9. love this craft idea. maybe I will do it another time, since we've pretty much finished up all ours. have you checked my other blog to see what all we did in our christmas around the world study ? lots of fun!
