Santa Baby Beards

Wednesday, December 23, 2009


Every month I get together with a bunch of mom friends for a little, baby play date and adult camaraderie. We rotate houses and this month it was my turn. Because it's the holidays I thought it might be fun to set-up a craft table with the fixings for Santa Baby Beards. We set up a blanket with toys, rotated baby wrangling duties and whipped up a little holiday hilarity that perhaps, only a mama could love.

Try this craft in your own home either made for baby or by an older child. I'd be willing to wager if you leave a picture of your cutie-pie Kringles near the cookies for the Big Guy, he'll leave an extra little something in his biggest fans stockings!

  • Glue cotton balls onto felt front. Let dry.
  • Measure elastic from baby's ear-to-ear. Subtract 1 " and cut. Hand sew to top of both sides of beard piece.
  • Sit back and enjoy the wonderment in your baby's, bear-wearing face.

I mean seriously, look at the joy! This is what Christmas is all about; the merriment of babes.

Happy holidays!,
