I know it is the week before Christmas but I thought I would share some crafts we have been working on.
Take a glass ball ornament and place torn tissue paper over it. Using a paint brush, brush StarchFlo over the tissue paper. This acts as a glue. Once it dries, add a ribbon to the top.
Hot glue popsicle sticks in the shape of a star. Spread glue on each one and sprinkle with glitter.
Take a close pin and color or paint brown. Add a pom-pom for the nose and googly eyes. Hot glue to another close pin and add a magnet on the back. You can use this as an ornament or as a clip on the frig to hold the kids crafts.
This is made by using your child's hand print.
You could do one of your whole family by painting one finger from each member. I am planning to do this while at my parents.
This is made by placing white tights over a stretched wire hanger. Twist a rubber band around the tights to hold them in place. Add red construction paper for the hat, googly eyes and cotton balls for the beard. You can hang this from a light or on a door.
Cut out the middle of a paper plate. Paint the plate green. Once it dries, add berries (thumbprint) using red paint and add a bow.
Paint part of a paper plate red. Once it dries, cover it with saran wrap and tie both ends with ribbon.
Paint a brown triangle and add your child's hand print to the top corners of the triangle. Paint a red nose and eyes.
Edible Christmas tree
Take a sugar cone and cover it with green icing. Use sprinkles to decorate. Simple and fun!
Cut a piece of bread in the shape of a triangle. Spread peanut butter. Add a M&M for the nose, raisins for the eyes and pretzel sticks for the antlers.
Hopefully, I have given you some ideas of crafts that can be done with your kids.......in your spare time, of course!
