We have enjoyed decorating our tree this year with handmade ornaments… pretty little treasures we have made ourselves. I can’t tell you the joy and pride my children feel when they hang one of their very own decorations on the tree. Instantly, their little creation becomes magical. It’s a beautiful thing to see.
Today, we made Sparkly Yarn Ornaments… they are very sweet and such fun to make as they require the popping of a balloon! This craft was a firm favorite of my Mr T.
And now for the fun part… popping the balloons. For us, it happened so quickly and with so much whooping and joyful clapping that capturing it with my camera was impossible. Mr T delighted in this activity… the balloon makes a wonderfully loud ‘POP’ and then a curious ‘Woosh’ as it pulled away from the glue. We were very sad we only had 4 to pop!
