I’m in disbelief that Christmas is a few days away. We JUST started our cookie baking and all I want to do is curl up on the couch and watch movies. But, wait. I have a 3-year-old who is not going to let that happen.
I’m off work for a couple of weeks and the boy will not be in daycare as much. I want to keep him busy, and he loves crafting with me. I looked at the YahooDIY! site to find some ideas for my boy and came across 10 Fun Holiday Crafts for Kids. It was exactly what I needed.
I decided we would work on ornaments this past weekend. What parent or grandparent doesn’t want to receive ornaments from kids? I have a pack of foam ornament “pieces.” What we have leftover will actually be used in my son’s daycare group this week.
Since the pieces are already cut out, I dabbed glue on the foam and he placed sequins on the glue. We also had glitter glue (oh, the glitter glue). There are even spots in the center where I can add photos. (Thanks to my Canon Selphy, I can take a pic and print it on the fly – and no, that is not a sponsored statement.)
In less than 30 minutes, we made 8 ornaments. My son had a blast.
My son wanted to keep going. He loves gluing and placing sequens all over the place and every ornament was different.
I have plans to use these as gift tags on some of our family gifts this week. I’m really pleased with how they turned out and can’t wait to try this with his daycare group!
What kinds of projects are you working on, or have you completed, this holiday season?
