For me the holidays are the perfect excuse to bake and consume large amounts of sugar. But at our house, when mommy is in the kitchen, everybody is in the kitchen...and our kitchen is tiny. So I thought it best to come up with a fun way to keep little hands busy. The boys really enjoyed the pumpkins I made for our fridge in October so I knew they'd love a Christmas tree and this time, I took it up a notch by turning it into a game.
|for our "game board" i cut a tree, boxes & a circle out of scrapbook paper.|
the arrow is from scrap cardboard and secured to the circle with a
paper fastener. i then stuck everything to a magnetic adhesive sheet.
|the "game pieces" are simply scrapbook embellishments stuck|
to magnetic disks *i used the magnetic disks instead of an adhesive sheet
because they are a stronger magnet*
|[close up of the spinner] since my boys are 2 & 4 i kept it pretty simple|
*you may notice i cut a wedge our of the arrow, this was done so it
it was weighted evenly when hanging in a vertical position*
