Creative Play Challenge Day 1: Make Your Own Holiday Decorations!
November 26, 2012 at 9:07 AM

Decorating the house together is a wonderful activity, but so is the act of creating these decorations together! Arts & crafts is always a great time to share creativity, and there's no better time than the holidays! Paper snowflakes, seasonal cutouts, and paper chains in holiday colors are a few of our favorites, and can make the house look festive and special!

Today, pick ONE decoration to make with your child, and tell us what you created!

    Last year I made little reindeer out of clothes pins, cotton balls (red for the nose) and little reindeer stickers for the head!

    That is such a cute idea! Did you paint the  pins a darker brown?
