Handmade Ornaments

This is the first year my oldest son (age 5) is truly anticipating Christmas day. He is a real lover of the magic of the season: the lights, the music, the baking, the making.

Each morning, he usually sets up at the dining table with markers, crayons, pencil and paper and creates a few drawings. Since discovering the nifty project of making a spiral ornament, he has made at least two (usually more) each morning.

When we brought our tree home on Sunday, he and his younger brother set to the task of decorating the tree together in the afternoon.

Can't stop the season for this guy. The handprint antler hat was made all on his own from getting the paper, tracing his hands, coloring, cutting out and stapling it together.

To make a spiral ornament:
Draw a spiral on a piece of paper (my son uses 8 1/2" x 11" with a swirl that rings about 4-5 times).
Cut out the circle and along the spiral line.
