Deck the Walls!

This easy to remove kid-friendly tree takes only pennies to make.

What's needed:
Washi tape
Clear command hooks
Scrapbook paper
Twinkle lights

Cut out ornaments and a star from scrapbook paper. We traced around a hot cocoa mug on the back of our scrapbook paper to create an ornament template.  

Attach washi tape on the wall in a triangle shape for the tree and a rectangle for the base.

Using a zig zag pattern we placed 6 command hooks on the wall to affix the lights. 
(Have no fear the command hooks easily remove and won't damage your walls.)

Allow the kids to 'decorate' the tree with your paper ornaments. Kids may also enjoy decorating individual ornaments with crayons or puffy paint. 

 Such a beautiful and eco-friendly way to celebrate the season. We just had to share!

Fa la la la la la la la la! 

GIFT TO OUR FOLLOWERS: Paper Pockets, A Gnome Exchange Game

We are very excited to be back and are pleased to offer our FREE Paper Pockets Gnome Exchange Game; a fun and playful way to teach children about coinage.  For younger children it can be used as an introduction to counting or simply playing pretend.

Here's how it works...

The Gnome bankers need help filling the tills at Toadstool bank. Match the coins to the correct spots while learning the value of each coin.

Learn even more by helping Mr. Gnome exchange coins.  Place a hand full of coins onto the pocket. Then help Mr. Gnome reduce the coins in his pocket by exchanging small value coins for larger value ones. The goal is to have the same amount of money with least amount of coins.  Print two and have a race with a friend to see who can lighten the pockets faster!

Have even more fun calculating and writing with decimals on our printable tablet.
