We've been making some Christmas decorations around here. Inspired by this, we made a little Christmas tree ornament. I thought it would be a good one to do with the kids, but they just weren't that into it. I think if I were to do it again, I would be sure to have all the pieces pre-cut for them (I was cutting and then handing them over as I was done), and maybe make holes in the middle. Their judgment varied as to where the middle of the circle actually was, so I ended up finishing it up. Then they liked it.
(And I just want to say how glad I am to have a little stash of felt in a bunch of colors on hand. It makes it so easy to see something and say, "Let's make that!", and just get started right away. Regular felt from Joann's is super cheap, and I always keep my eyes peeled for real wool felt when I'm at the thrift store, so I have a small suitcase full, and I maybe paid $3 for all of it.)
The pomanders we made were a collective hit though. I would poke holes with the toothpick and they would stick the cloves in. (Make sure you buy your cloves at Costco. It was about $5 for a huge container that we've barely made a dent in.) I have to say, this was a very nice smelling project.
We haven't actually got our tree yet, so I think that's next on the docket.
