Day 17: Harlem Macaroni Kid Countdown to Christmas

Family Traditions:

December 8, 2022

This is one of our favorite activities right before Christmas as, we put tree spinners in our tiny hallway in our apartment. We love how it spins from the ceiling.

How to make Tree Spinners

Step 1: Draw around a bowl on some old gift paper or construction paper. Cut out the circle.

Step 2: Draw a spiral on top. Cut along this line.

Step 3: Make a hole in the middle with a hole punch. Thread a long piece of string through the hole. Tie a knot at one end.

Step 4: Make a star for the tip of the tree and hang up on the ceiling.

Supplies needed

Hole punch



Gift wrapping or construction paper
