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.)

    We made ornaments for this challange. This is something the kids can all do and they love it. They give them to Grandparents and Aunts and Uncles for Christmas.

    My kids and I are making felt ornments with the help of a kit that I picked up at Joanne Fabrics.  They required alot of sewing, but they turned out great. We are going to give one to each of the kid's teachers, my son's bus driver, dd's dance instructors, and her brownie leader. We are also making some for members of our family.  If we have any leftover, I plan to hang a few on our tree as well.

    We really enjoyed doing this. We (my husband included and my 2 year old) made cards for the soldiers overseas.
