A Fun Christmas Project For kids

Christmas is almost here yay! It’s the most wonderful time of the year 🙂

This year we are having fun preparing for Christmas. We’ve decided to be intentional in what we do vs. quantity we do.

“Keeping the important thing important.”

We are spending quality time together making homemade ornaments instead of spending money buying some.

Plus we are saving by making cute ornaments made of pasta. Frugal and fun!

I love texture! So I thought there’s nothing better than pasta to create texture.

Plus this craft is super easy for kiddos to do. They will really have fun combining pasta and glue in a cookie cutter holiday shape!
