Homemade Gifts from Adrienne

My children like to exchange gifts at Christmas. Adrienne plans ahead of time every year and starts making things for her siblings early. She is so good at this, I really admire the thought and the work she puts in these homemade gifts.

This year, she made Celeste some felt food. She saw some pasta when I was looking for ideas on what I would make, and decided to make a bunch of bow tie pasta. She also built and painted a cardboard box to put the pasta in! 


 For her brother, she found an unused wood box, painted it, and lined it with felt. She painted his name inside. She then filled it with some candy! The box is for his glasses and Andre was so pleased with it, and with his candy of course!
