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!
(For holiday-themed arts & crafts ideas, visit our "Winter Wonderland" inspirational board on Pinterest.)

How young? What about clay ortiments with their feet or hand imprints?
does this still count if I do everything and dd just looks on all adorable? lol I think she's still a bit too young to be doing the arts and crafts.

She's in school right now but I'm thinking maybe we can make some snowflakes. She would like making those more than the other suggestions. Time to channel my inner child...

I am learning how to make quillings (self taught so it is going slowly) and my girls and I have been working on patterns for ornaments. So far only one snow flake has been completed.
