Little Mama's Christmas Round-Up

This "Christmas Light Scavenger Hunt", from Layers of Learning is a great activity that you can do with your family.  Maybe it could even become a tradition!  I shared it with my local MOPS group, and it was a hit!  Click here to go to the page for a printable version.
I absolutely LOVE this idea!  Homemade pizza shaped like snowmen!  You could totally change the ingredients to fit your taste.  Maybe use mini pepperoni or sausage instead of olives.  This great idea comes from Delia Creates.  Click here to view her instruction page.
The 36th Avenue has put together a collection of WONDERFUL Christmas printables!  They can create great opportunities for imagination and creativity!  Check them out here!
Tell the Christmas story with handmade ornaments from Little Blots!  These are adorable, simple and inexpensive to make!  A great activity to do with kids or just do them yourself!  Directions and printables can be found here.
52 Mantels has a great idea for decorating or gift giving! I'm thinking this would be a perfect teacher gift!  Fill a shadow box with ornaments!  Instructions can be found here.
Create a family tradition with this idea from The Imagination Tree!  The idea is to pack a "Christmas Eve Box."  She suggests items like new pajamas for everyone, hot cocoa, popcorn and more.  See her idea here.
 One of my favorite decor ideas is this tomato cage, lighted Christmas tree.  I have seen this all over the web, but these instructions come from New England Design and Construction.  I have a bunch of tomato cages stored in my shed for the winter!  They have some other neat ideas too!
I have a TON of extra buttons in a box.  I use them from time to time on various craft ideas, but I think I have found my favorite idea!  This one comes from Martha Stewart.  Yes, I love Martha!  This adorable wreath ornament is made of buttons, floral wire and a piece of ribbon.  You could definitely do this with the kids too!  Check out the instructions here.
Save your scrap pieces of wrapping paper ... you know, the ones that are not big enough to wrap anything.  Adventures of a DIY Mom made this cute craft using craft paper, but I think you could also use wrapping paper scraps.  Get the instructions here.
Subway art is super trendy right now.  While He Was Napping has a FREE subway art printable that is Christmas themed.  Check it out here.
And another FREE subway art from Eye Candy:
And now the finale ... tips from August Tea Photography on how to capture great photos of your Christmas tree!  This is so helpful to me because I am still learning what settings to use in various environments.  Read the post here.

Merry Christmas from Little Mama!
