T.J.is getting in the Christmas spirit!

Kid's Korner

Winter Time in the Village


Hello..... and a warm welcome to our winter edition of Kid's Korner!

As winter has seemed as though it is upon us a little earlier than usual, let's look at the positive!  We have more time to spend inside with our loved ones doing projects that we may not have gotten to if the weather was perfect (although beautiful late fall weather would surely have been welcome!).

All of us at Ebert's are excited for the inside of our cozy store and greenhouse where we will host our Christmas open house, complete with a pinecone  ornament craft, face painting, a letter writing/picture station, and a visit with Santa himself! We will also feature the reading of the sweet story of "The Legend of Mistletoe the Christmas Kitten," by Joe Troiano, along with your son or daughter having the chance to pick out a small "present" from Santa's gift basket! We can't wait for the memories to be made with you!

As you and your family get ready for Christmas and the winter months, we have included some fun and creative ways to do a nature inspired craft with pinecones!

Have fun doing these activities with your family. Thank you for your continued support of Ebert's Greenhouse Village throughout ALL of the seasons! Make sure you check out the pictures of the creative pinecone decorating ideas below, and "T.J." the Ebert's cat getting in the spirit of the season!

Blessings to all!

Renee Ebert and all your friends at Ebert's Greenhouse Village

Pine Cone Winter Owl Craft

Glue a small amount of flattened out cotton around a pinecone to look like snow.  Then use felt to cut out two owl wings, a beak, and eyes. Brown, yellow and orange felt make great owl colors!  You can then glue the wings on the sides of the pinecone, along with the eyes and beak on the top of the front to make the owl's face!

Here is a link to a Youtube video that takes you through the process step by step: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fPSMwu6WfJQ

Other cute crafts could be to glue beads or sequins on pinecones after painting them green to make a festive Christmas tree, or simply spray painting them gold or silver to fill a glass jar for a winter center piece!
