One Christmas Lasts Forever Car Ornament Craft
One Christmas Lasts Forever – Car Ornament Craft
It is no secret that I love books. But what I love even more is when the opportunity arises to combine great books, with creative activities, or delicious recipes. This post will be about the former. But if you are salivating for a delicious recipe with a literary connection, be sure to check out this post : (Send Judah First Apple Pie Post)
While the paint was drying, we took the opportunity to read, One Christmas Lasts Forever.
We used hot glue to piece the car together.
And there you have it, a “hand-painted orange car, with bright blue wheels.”
I was happy with the simplicity of the craft, as well as the ability to customize it with a photo.
I love the meaningful addition this ornament provides when giving One Christmas Lasts Forever, as a gift. Or just to make with your family, so that you can hold your own “hand-painted orange car, with bright blue wheels” in your hands.

Books provide entertainment, education, and even escape for people of all ages. As many of us find ourselves spending more time at home than perhaps ever before, we want to present a few activities that fall “outside the pages”.

Earlier this month I talked about some of the things I look for when choosing picture books for my kids. I apply much of the same concepts when choosing books for myself, and that includes diverse representation.
• Diverse representation in characters
• Diverse representation in authors
• Diverse representation in content
