Christmas gnomes are all the rage these days. I get it. What could be cuter than a long bearded, tiny creature with a pointy hat, giant nose and no eyes? Basically nothing. The large gnome hat clumsily resting on his nose, and precariously covering his eyes is rather cute. The entire scene reminds me of a one, Ralphie, stuffed so deep into his snowsuit, he's rendered immobile. "I can't put my arms down!" Remember that line from A Christmas Story? That's like the gnome that "can't lift my hat!" And that's darn cute.
These guys are EASY! They are packed with fine motor practice, creative expression and holiday cheer. What's more, they make perfect gifts! Try adding a loop for hanging on the tree or on the wall. Lots of way to use these lil guys this holiday season. Are you sold yet? Great! Let's get on with it!
