‘Twas the Night Before Christmas Craft

My all-time favorite Christmas story is “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas”.  So, when my daughter brought home this adorable craft as my Christmas gift from school I was in love.

This simple treasure is a wooden spoon featuring the quote, “not a creature was stirring, now even a . . . “.  At the bottom is a thumbprint mouse.

These cute spoons will make an adorable Christmas keepsake gift for loved ones.  To make your own, follow the steps below.

What you’ll need: wooden spoon, black and red fine-tip sharpies, black ink pad, and ribbon (optional).

1.  Stamp your little one’s thumb at the bottom of the spoon.

2.  Draw on the mouse’s features

3.  Write: Not a creature was stirring, not even a . . . 

4.  Tie a ribbon on the handle for added charm.

You may also want to attach a wallet-size picture of your child.  My spoon was given to me in a cello bag.  Because a ribbon is already attached, though, wrapping is optional.
