Kids are out of school (or will be soon).
"Mom, I'm bored."
"Mom, I wanna do something fun."
"Mom, let's do something for Christmas."
If you've ever had a weekend or a school's-out-day full of hungry kids following you around the house
telling you they're bored over and over again, I feel you!!! I have one out of the house and
2 still following me around on those days.
This is a family tradition we created, in part, to fill some time and make some memories.
Now it has become something we all love and look forward to every year.
I keep acrylic paints on hand and I stock up on wooden ornaments at the after-Christmas sales for the
next years' contest. Paint pens also come in handy and skinny Sharpies for those finer details.
We usually post our ornaments on social media and allow friends and family to vote.
I think we've had different prizes over the years, but mostly it's for bragging rights.
Can you believe my then-9-year-old did the Frog all by himself?
