Colouring in the foam Christmas ornaments

When I was a kid, we would make a decoration every year for my grandparents’ Christmas tree. Grandma proudly displayed our home made ornaments every year until she moved to a nursing home.

After she died, we were cleaning out her things and found a box where she had kept all our decorations! Each of us grandchildren had a shoebox with our name on it. In each box were all the decorations we had made, each in a bag with the year we made them.

These decorations are on my Christmas tree now, and my kids are enjoying them. As well as making their own decorations of course!
