Creative Play Challenge Day 8: Make a Special Homemade Gift or Card
December 3, 2012 at 10:19 AM

Giving a gift from the heart this holiday season doesn't have to take a lot of time, and it can really nourish your child's imagination. Today, ask your child to draw a picture, decorate a frame, write a poem or story, or create a little scrapbook-any homemade creation they'd like!

What did your child create?

(P.S. To stock-up on your Arts & Crafts collection, here are a few items we'd recommend.)

    My son, 10 this year, always likes to make something out of his Legos and give it to his sister, who's 5. It's so sweet, he's really a giving little kid :-)

    Thats a good idea!


    Quoting rkkeller13:

    I was thinking of doing something with DS foot prints and hand prints to send to family for this Christmas. Can't afford to but them stuff, bit I think homemade is better cause it comes from the heart.

    We made.a.card by tracing my 4- yr. Olds hands and foot and letting him color and cut out to make a reindeer. We traced the baby's hand and put it upside down for a santa clause. We used glitter, puffy paint and goggly eyes to decorate. We ended up using it as a birthday card for.a friend with a dec. B-day.

    We make stepping stones for everyone at Christmas. Just need some of the concrete mix and pretty glass beads to decorate. The kids LOVE it!:)
