The holiday season has finally arrived and I just love the excitement it brings to the kids. They love all the little things like opening the Advent calendar in the morning, looking for Christmas lights on our drive, and of course, the crafts. I’m trying to spend a bit less time online this month to allow myself more time to play with the kids. The Christmas season is a little shorter this year and I want to enjoy the little things along with them. The kids want to make simple crafts, and they want me to make them with them. In your home, creating crafts may be a way to keep the kids busy while you get the holiday cards addresses. Whatever works for you when it comes to crafting, enjoy.
We are trying to work on a Christmas Craft-A-Day plan. I’m planning ahead a bit and getting materials ready for the next day. Once there is a lull in our daily schedule, we can all sit down and work on the latest project. My little ones are nearly 5 and 3 so these are simple projects. I have pinned lots of ideas in my Christmas Fun board on Pinterest. You can also just type into the search area of Pinterest for an idea based on materials you already have at home.
Follow along with our craft projects on Instagram and share yours with the hashtag #XmasCraftADay. Then everyone can find some new ideas!
