Children delight in making priceless kid-friendly Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa crafts gifts from the heart. We hope you enjoy the following wonderful ideas that we have gathered from our members.
"Crush shredded wheat in a bag. Add glitter to make it look really magical in the moonlight. Attach a tag, saying, 'Place the magic reindeer food on your lawn right before bedtime on Christmas Eve, then quickly hop into bed. This contains enough food for eight tiny reindeer.' This makes great gifts as well as fun for your own kids."
Wooden Christmas Tree
"When my son was little we did this, and I'm sure it would work for any age, as all it takes is painting and gluing. I went to our local unfinished wood store and got small wooden trees, which I painted green. I also bought small wooden blocks, stars and a variety of shapes. My son painted the shapes and glued them to the tree. These made great gifts, perfect for a desk, windowsill or mantle."
"Cut red construction paper into a stocking shape. Glue cotton balls to the top to make a cuff. Then decorate. If you want to have your name on top, write it on the cotton with shirt paint."
Candy Cane Reindeer
"Take a candy cane, glue wiggly eyes on each side of the hook, then a tiny red pompom on the end for the nose. Make the antlers from a pipe cleaner."
