The holidays are the perfect time to enjoy family, friends, and lots of good food. But in the hustle and bustle of finding gifts, entertaining family, and more, it’s easy to miss opportunities to spend time with your kids. From HGTV.com, here are some holiday crafts to help you bond as a family!
- Make your own snow globe. Although this craft may sound complex, homemade snow globes are fun, easy, and look great in the home. All you need is an empty jar and a little imagination. Glue items like lego figures, paper Christmas trees, or a Styrofoam snowman to the inside of a jar lid, screw it on tight, and turn the jar upside down. Add water and glitter to make it more like a real snow globe!
- Design your own wrapping paper. Get some Kraft paper, butcher paper, or construction paper. Your kids can use markers, crayons, paint, or other supplies to decorate. You can even use cookie cutters as stencils to make fun shapes, like Christmas trees or stars! It’s cost effective, good for the environment, and a great way to express creativity.
- Make your own ornaments. Whether you use popsicle sticks, felt, paper, or pipe cleaners, all you need is string, and you can turn any craft into a beautiful hanging ornament to decorate the house or spruce up the Christmas tree.
Whether you do crafts, cook with the family, or cuddle up in front of a fire, the holiday season is the perfect opportunity to spend qualoty time with your kids and make new memories! For more parenting tips and tricks, visit us at Any Baby Can or give us a call at 512.454.3743.
