It's simple... take a pipecleaner or two if you want to mix the colors together and wrap them around the ring. Here Aayla is doing a red and a green pipecleaner together to make a striped wreath (red and white look like candy canes).
Later this week the girls will be doing a little bit of Christmas shopping so as one of our homeschool activities today we set up a mini store with a few toys and left over Halloween candy. Both girls learned about the cost of items, how much each coin is worth, what makes up a dollar, tallying bills, counting payments, making change...and had so much fun doing it. I can see us doing this activity again in the near future.
