My house is a crafty house. Very little of it comes from me (although I am attempting to sew curtains this week with supervision from a very talented friend). My kids can easily craft all day if left to their own devices. Each year at Christmas we make ornaments together. There is also a lot of arts and crafts time between school letting out and the holidays. I thought I would share some of what we will be doing this December. I anticipate weekly additions to my craft board on pinterest!
(The links on pinterest seem to have gone down so as it is a year later I am replacing the pinterest links with the actual links to the sites with the crafts)
Beaded elves from Parents.com
Martha Stewart ornaments - we will be making the button ones pictured below. They have only been on my to do list for – ever!
Thumbprint tree salt dough ornament. With such crafty kids I may be considered negligent for never indulging in salt dough at home.
Thumbprint lights card - I think I like thumbprint art even more than the kids. There are heaps of great ideas and if you are new to it I suggest you get your hands on one of the books put out by Klutz!
Styrofoam balls and sequins - I already have the balls and sequins in our stash, need the pretty straight pins since I won’t donate them from my sewing box.
Swirled ornaments we do every year. We each make our own and then we use a sharpie to write our names and the year. This will be our 4th year.
Do you have any kids crafts planned? I would love to see what you have found so feel free to share a link in the comments if you want.
