Christmas tends to go past so quick! All the excitement building up during Advent, and then it’s over! I try and make sure to build some memories around this special holiday. Each year we add a photo frame ornament to our tree. This is a fun way to remember all the past years, and how the kids grow!
My almost 3 year old son made this super adorable gingerbread house photo frame today(my daughter made a pretty Santa frame!)
We used the thick craft sticks and I “built” the house for him. Older kids can do this step themselves.
With small pieces like these, I always give an earbud to use together with the glue. This way the kids only use a small amount. Oh, and do supervise whenever your young child work with small pieces!
I added his name and the year, together with a string at the back to hang it on the tree.
Here it is, hanging on our tree: a special keepsake gingerbread house photo frame ornament! (This photo was taken at school in this past week when they had their Christmas party.)
