SHOP THE LOOKS
Happy Friday guys! So sorry we have been MIA over here the last couple of days! We are about to go out of town next week to NYC AND we are so excited to be taking over the Liketoknow.it Family account again today! We took over last fall during our Aspen travels, but this year we are sharing lots of fun holiday content in our hometown! Be sure to follow along on the @liketoknow.it.family handle here. I wanted to include some activities for you and your kids to do this holiday season in coordination with the takeover and one of them is how to make fun unicorn ornaments we saw on Best Ideas for Kids. See the full tutorial here and check my stories today to see a step by step process!
I thought it would share some fun pics from the past week we shot for the takeover! We love hanging out in our robes on the weekends a WEEE big longer than normal and lately we have been reading Christmas stories too! We picked up THIS nutcracker book and the illustrations are so beautiful. Olivia got her unicorn slippers for her birthday and they are her absolute favorite!
That evening we went to the local ice skating rink before dinner! This spot is actually a local splash pad that is turned into an ice skating rink during the holidays. Olivia’s dress is the most sparkly little number and she literally freaked out when she saw it haha. It reminded her of a unicorn which means she wants to wear it EVERY SINGLE DAY! I love wearing icy pastels in the winter, so I coordinated with her in my pink coat and mint green sweater that I styled on the blog earlier this week.
Here are some pics from our Unicorn Ornament Activity! See the full tutorial HERE!
Step 1: Make Unicorn Horns from Molding Clay. Bake, let cool and then paint gold or silver
Step 2: Draw eyes/eyelashes with sharpie pin. We eyeballed it (no pun intended haha)
Step 3: Make ears from scrapbook paper and felt (see my insta stories for a better step by step process)
Step 4: Glue on ears (behind ornament hook), horn (in front of ornament hook) and embellishments (around horn and ears.) We placed the ornament on a cup so that it was stabilized. (TIP: you can use scrapbook stickers or craft clue for the embellishments so that your kiddos can help! Definitely use hot glue for the ears and horn! )
Step 5: Hang on the tree with a christmas ornament hook!
We have a pretty busy weekend preparing for our trip and my niece Nora’s 2nd birthday! I can’t WAIT to be back in the city to see all the Christmas fun including an amazing party at the Plaza that I can’t wait to share! xoxo Tara
