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.)

This is what we started doing since DD's first Christmas. Everyone loves homemade gifts from her
by rkkeller13December 3, 2012 at 2:53 PMI 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.
