Magnetic Christmas Tree
I originally posted pictures of this on Facebook. My daughter has been making a new tree every day since we first did this. She's been having so much fun I thought it would be post worthy. :-)

I drew a Christmas Tree on the whiteboard for her to decorate. However, if you do not have a white board you can also use a cookie sheet, cake pan, etc. Another great idea... tape a Christmas tree on your refrigerator using painters tape. Fun activity while you're cooking dinner!
She was apart of this whole process. Cutting Mardi Gras beads for her "lights".
Picking out her decorations.
Adding to tree.
We used a hot glue gun because we didn't have any gorilla glue on hand. Some of the pieces fell apart. Gorilla glue would be a better option.
Her finished tree.
This was another tree she made this AM.
"Can you take my picture, Mommy?" Of course!!
