Pompom Garlands and Christmas trees

As a final touch to the kids' Christmas trees this season we made pompom garlands. I gave them each a blunt tip needle with a double strand of embroidery floss. We had a large assortment of pompoms to use, and we found that some were easier to thread than others. Pinky had no issues doing this project on her own while Chaos needed help with the harder poms (they had a more solid middle than the others). I had him tell me the color of his poms as he handed them to me and we sorted them by size as we worked. This was a fun activity to do while watching a Christmas movie together.

And now that the last of the ornaments have been made and hung on the trees, the only thing left is for Santa to visit. Here's a view of our trees, with the garlands we made, one last time before the big night.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!
