I think this is the beginning of what will surely be a trend of books and crafts. Last week we were reading Patricia Polacco's Uncle Vova's Tree, in which the children make paper stars to decorate the tree. L immediately said, I want to make those! And so we did.
We hadn't actually put up our tree yet, so they stayed in a vase for a few days - which I think looked quite lovely. But L carried one to our local Christmas parade to wave at the floats as they passed.
