Simple and Fun Christmas Tree Ornaments

Sometimes when we catch a cold everyone goes down at once. Other times we catch a virus and it slowly trickles through the kids, keeping the whole family stranded at home for a week or two. Talk about cabin fever and bouncing off the walls!

It’s easy to resort to 24/7 television during those weeks, and I admit that’s normally what I do! But Hefty has a great craft idea that is perfect for filling up those sick days. These adorable Christmas Tree Ornaments are perfect for crafting on sick days!
