Friday we are having a Happy Birthday Jesus party with our homeschool group.  The kids will be making 2 Christmas ornaments at the party.  Here are the samples that my kiddos and I made yesterday.

Angel Ornament
The directions to make the angel above are here:

(I used a little piece of silver pipe cleaner  for the halo on my version.)

Candy Cane Ornament
Here is what is written on the Candy Cane one.

The Candy Cane

“J” is for Jesus the one and only son of God whose birth we celebrate at Christmas.  He came as an act of love to save us from our sins. 

The white base color of the candy cane reminds us that he was pure and completely without sin.

The red stripes remind us of the blood He shed to save us from our sins. 

The candy is bent into a cane to remind us that Jesus is the Good Shepherd.  Turn it over and it becomes a "J" for Jesus! 

A simple piece of candy, yet it is so much more.  A reminder of our Lord and Saviour!

These are both super simple and super inexpensive to make.  The angels cost about $6.00 to make 40 and the candy cane ones cost about $10.00 to make 40.  Not bad, huh?

Happy Homeschooling,
