The girls were off from school yesterday and while we had an eventful weekend with Zio Antonio in town and visiting the Big Apple for the day, I still wanted to do something with the kids. Something Christmas-y, closeby and not a lot of hassle with a stroller. Off to Linvilla Orchards we went to check out their Christmas displays and for a little sweet!
Linvilla is a favorite spot for us to visit throughout the year and this visit proved no different. Although not there to cut-our-own-tree, we checked out the markets and the Christmas decorations. Cousin Simon met us there too!
The random Italian-flag pumpkin beside the sign advertising cut-your-own-tree.
My little kiddos. Mario either looks very bored and is about ready for his afternoon nap.
This was a simple little craft the girls did last week as part of our Advent Activity Calendar.
What you'll need:
scrapbook paper - I used shades of green and cut strips of different sizes
colorful cardstock paper for ornaments and star
punchouts - thankfully I have more than enough of these on hand
I think they came out pretty cute! I still have leftover scrapbook paper to make my own too!
Thanks to Pinterest for finding the blogpost where I got the idea from!!!
