After Christmas last year, I started brainstorming about Truth in the Tinsel 2012. Should we add more to it? Do something different?
I was talking to my friend Vanessa, from Silly Eagle Books about some ideas I had. She said, “You know what would be really good? Some printable ornaments. Then on the days we don’t want to do a craft, we could just color it and hang it up.”
What a fabulous idea! It would work for so many ideas–if you were doing Truth in the Tinsel on vacation (like we did last year at Disney World!), at Grandma’s when all your relatives are there, for toddlers who don’t have the attention span for a long craft, when you don’t have the supplies or just don’t want to pull all the mess out!
I buzzed Jason at Buzzhive.net who designed the original Truth in the Tinsel to see if he could make some printable ornaments for us. And he did! He designed them to look like a traditional ball ornament and used our clues from the original book as a guide for the pictures.
My husband and kids colored some tonight and had a great time. When my 4 year old son was finished coloring he said, “Mommy, look at my sheep. I gave him a space helmet.”
Hey, whatever works, right?
These printable ornaments are not mandatory for using Truth in the Tinsel. They are an additional supplement for when you need a quick craft or a break from your normal activity. And check out our Printable Christmas Trees for even more fun!
