Updated: Dec 10, 2021
There are so many enamoring parts about Christmas! This invitation explores the magic of the holiday by inviting a child to decorate christmas trees, ginger bread, and ugly sweaters with loose parts.
To set this invitation you will need card stock paper, recycled cardboard, contact paper, ginger bread + ugly sweater cut outs. These will be the “base” for the children to decorate. In a tinker tray, you can fill it with glitter/rainbow Pom Poms, acrylic ice rocks, gem stones, buttons, sparkle pipe cleaners, and bells. Simply invite the child to design the trees, gingerbread, and ugly sweaters with loose parts.
