Miss Pickles and I love celebrating our teachers with homemade gifts for the holidays. I hope I’m teaching her that not everything of value comes from a store, and that giving of yourself and your time is perhaps the greatest gift.
So here’s a quick and easy craft you and little ones can do. I saw this video, which has some other ideas as well, and will post that to our FB page.
What you’ll need:
Mason jars (I like the 16oz size)
Hot cocoa mix
Dark Brown pipe cleaners (3 per jar)
Googly eyes (2 per jar)
Small red Pom-Poms (1 per jar)
Fill mason jars a little more than half way with cocoa then top with marshmallows and crushed peppermint (optional) and close jar.
Wrap a brown pipe cleaner around the jar just under the lid.
Step 3: Making the antlers.
Step 4: Attach googly eyes and pom-pom for the nose.
You can fill the jars with anything you choose!
Time: about 10 minutes per jar
Kid participation: Age 3 and up will enjoy this craft.
Happy Holidays from Dr. Peaches & Miss Pickles!!!
