Our homeschool group met on Thursday and had our annual Holiday Party. We had tons of food, eggnog and cider and of course chocolate covered strawberries and pretzels. We had a great craft that we gleaned from http://www.themagiconions.blogspot.com/
We made 8 pointed stars with the kids. Kate brought some beautiful scrapbooking 12 x 12 paper and the kids made really huge stars. So did the adults. I think we had as much fun as the kids.
Stacey brought the smaller 6 x 6 cellophane paper which made some irridescent and translucent gorgeous stars in all colors.
The stars were very easy to make.
Even the younger kids had a great time.
Paper folding Christmas crafts on our halloween tablecloth.
Tissue and cellophane of all colors.
Pretty blue ones.
And red ones.
And tables full of busy crafters.
Even with a chocolate mouth.
The moms made some too.
Pretty stars all lined up.
Polka dots and stripes and snowflakes.
And swirly star galaxy patterns.
The teens hung out in the kitchen.
Joni put together some beautiful gift baskets for the young pregnant teens home. She collected donations from family and friends so that these young teen moms would have a Christmas at the shelter where they were staying. Some of these baskets would be the only gift that the teen moms would get this year.
