This was our opening prayer tonight
(This prayer is from Max Lucado’s book “You Were Made to Make a Difference”).
We had such a wonderful time today at Creative Girls Club! I would love to share our fun craft for the holidays and our lesson. Look under Creative Girls Club to see the lesson so you can share with your girls. During our devotional time we talked all about praying.
This is a great subject for any age. I shared with the girls how I started praying only about a year ago and really connecting to God. I pray that these sweet girls find this connection sooner than I did. It is such a wonderful comfort to know how much God loves us and that he hears every word we say to him. After our devotional we headed into the kitchen for
hot cocoa, peppermint marshmallows, powdered donuts and peppermint chocolate bark for our little holiday treat.
The holiday craft for tonight was inspired by the snow scenes in mason jars in Anthropologie stores.
We are using these jars for our teacher’s holiday luncheon next week. I love the fact that the girls made the decorations for their teachers.
First you need lots of glitter and snow!
I love setting up the craft in fun and unique ways.
Use mason jars and measuring spoons(anthropologie) to spoon glitter into jars.
You will need mason jars, glitter, snow, spoons,hot glue,mini pine cones, mini snowflakes and mini trees for this activity. You can find the jars at the grocery store/michaels/hobby lobby. Just make sure they are smooth and not patterned, otherwise you will not be able to see the trees through the glass. The mini pinecones, mini trees and glitter were all purchased at Hobby Lobby.
I found beautiful green and blue bottle brush trees at World Market.
First you will need to hot glue the removable lid to the screw top lid. Next hot glue the trees and pine cones to the inside of the lid(as if you were going to screw the lid on and they are hanging upside down).
After your little scene is glued in, take your measuring spoons and add some to your jar. Only fill about 1/4 of the jar with snow and glitter so you can still see your trees inside but they have snow around them.
These took only a few minutes to make and they are so cheap to make!
One of my creative girls had her little 5 year old sister make some too!
We also made little bitty jars for special reindeer food to help them fly(glitter).
This would be such a cute addition to a little girls’ holiday party.
Add the guest’s name to to a pretty tag and you have an easy party favor.
Happy Holidays Everyone!
I hope we have inspired you to start your own creative girls club!
