Forget the Joneses 2010 Holiday Boot Camp: Week Four, Day Five

Holiday Crafts with Kids

Try to fit in one holiday craft project with your kids this weekend. It could be making a gingerbread house, ornaments, red and green play-dough, or paper chains for the tree. It doesn’t have to be complicated -- the point is that you’re spending quality time together and getting into the holiday spirit. (Download some free holiday .mp3s to get into the swing of things!)

Weekend Assignment: Try out one craft project with your kids this weekend. Here are some ideas: crafts, DIY projects, etc.

What will YOU be doing? What have you done already? We made these melted snowman cookies a couple days ago, and they're gone already. (oh, and we brought some to the neighbors for the "spread some unexpected holiday cheer" assignment, too). Ds has requested we make them again.

Definitely on my to do list, I checked out a book on Christmas Crafts for 3-7 year olds. We made pinecone Owls at preschool on Wednesday night. Actually it was a great activity because it was someone special night. Daddy doesn't do a whole lot of crafts with the little one.

I like to recommend getting Crayola magic model for ornaments. You can make hand print ornaments with it or make any other shape. It is then paintable after air drying.

We have a weekly baking day. I am enjoying this as it is the first year little miss can really get in and help.

Those sound cute!

We are going to make a gingerbread house. I have never done this - so I bought the kit since DD is only 3. Maybe this can become a tradition for us!

My daughter and I are experimenting with making homemade bath bombs (fizzies) today. It's been INTERESTING! Oh, and fun too.

We have cookie baking day planned at my mom's this Friday, complete w/ a sleepover. Thought about making paper snowflakes today with my son since we had our first snow today. May do this after church-think he would also like doing the paper chain to drape across our front window and I love the idea of the crayola product for handprint ornaments! Thanks!

The kids have painted ceramic ornaments, done paint in the clear glass ornaments and today they are making Christmas cards for their teachers!
