This is a strand of lights that the children have seen several times to add some festive color at family celebrations. I turned the light strand into a custom Christmas craft project for the children.
I cut paper plates so that they could be easily shaped into a shade for the light strand. The children each decorated their paper plates and wrote their names on them. We then stapled them on the light strand to create a craft that each child had a part in making.
Following the project everyone got on their shoes and jackets and the new light strand was strung outdoors to be enjoyed during our campfire Christmas Caroling activity.
The light strand now hangs over a mirror in the grandkid's toy room at grandmas house to be enjoyed the entire holiday season!
