This year she decided to do a Dutch Santa Claus because her mother migrated from Holland just before she was born. We put together the ornament to figure out all the details.
Here is is almost complete. The picture on the left was our inspiration.
And here he is all complete!
We used Styrofoam for his little body, and we sewed his dress and cape. When we get them ready for Christmas Eve, we assemble the parts and put them into little ziploc bags. Then, everybody can grab a bag and assemble their ornament. She also puts out a container of little dodads, so every person can personalize his ornament.
Do you have any fun family traditions?
