Felt Play Christmas Tree

Well, my tree is still standing, and has yet to come down this year, however, I have re-decorated it about 50 or so times!  I can't keep the boys hands off the decorations!!  I went to Pinterest to find something that could solve my problem!  This is what I found! Play Felt Tree and Ornaments

So after a friend kindly made a trip to Michael's to pick up a big peice of green felt, I was ready to cut!  Turns out I can't really cut a tree all that well, but the kids sure don't mind.  I added a little trunk to the tree to make it a little more real for them.  I cut bulb shaped ornaments, and some garland. and a little star for the top.

I left the tree out on the table for Monkey, so when he came down in the morning, it was a nice surprise for him to decorate!  He got right to it

And re-decorated....

...and re-decorated...

We moved it to the floor so Logey-Bear could play as well.  I was really close to him because I suspected that the peices would go right into his mouth....

..."What, I don't have anything in my mouth!!!"

..."Oh wait....yes I do!!!!"

So all in all, Monkey loves the tree and decorates it over and over and over....and Logey, well he likes to try and eat it, so not so great for him.  Monkey has decorated it by putting all the same colours together in each section, and by mixing up the colours.  It is amazing to watch him keep going back to it, to make it just right!   HOWEVER, I have still re-decorated our REAL tree about 15 more times, so it really didn't solve my problem!  But still cute nonetheless!
