No, I'm not really confused... but sometimes you see something nice and you share it with someone... and they go straight away! Apparently this inspiration is something you can't wait until December... so with this... a Christmas game for kids!
I came across something nice somewhere. So it was an opportunity to make a wooden game. So I showed that to host parentIneke van der Linde. He was immediately so enthusiastic, and went to work.
You have two options with this idea:
1. A game that children can do to promote motor skills
2. Give as Christmas greeting/Christmas wish for the children at home
1. Make this game for kids yourself
2. Or children make it themselves: You can make this partly (by cutting and gluing cardboard) or make it all by yourself. This, of course, depends on age and development.
What do you need:
- Cotton buds (wooden)
- White cardboard (milk carton boxes)
- Cardboard shears
- Cookie mold star
- Alder Props
How do you make it?
1. Draw a pine tree on cardboard
2. Cut out the pine tree
3. Use a substrate for the pine tree where it is glued. Leave to dry overnight with a little heavy on it
4. When the 2 tree parts are glued in the background and are well dried, you can easily pierce holes in the cardboard with a nail where the lights can enter.
5. To do this, first draw a very thin line with a pencil. So you get a beautiful pendulum of lights.
6. Just to be sure, put a bread/cutting board under the cardboard so that the table does not damage. But if you do it right, you do not need to pierce the cardboard at all.
7. Dip the cotton swabs (only the clots) on one side into the paint. Let it dry for a while. (The “lights” don't fall out if you happen to turn the game upside down.)
8. Paint the pine tree, star, sky, grass, snowflakes
Glued with Collall Eco Kids Glue. Give me some time to let it dry. Both cardboard and the “pine cones”. (=his alder's props).

What a beautiful result!
