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.)

I've been making Kitchen Angels for the last few years now-- out of a dish towel, dish cloth, & potholder in Christmas decor to match any kitchen color/theme. The tags on them read: "I am your kitchen angel, watching over all that you do. Baking all those goodies, even snitching 1 or 2. If you ever tire of me, and help is what your wish is....just until my ribbons & I will help you with the dishes !"

DS is too young too. He's going to decorate the Christmas cards. He doesn't like getting stuff on his hands, so no painting.
