Links We Love: Bottle Cap Stamps, Snowman Pancakes and More!

From fun crafts to must-have kids gear, we've rounded up great things to make, buy, do and see this weekend.

Checking your grocery shopping list twice, preparing for the kids to be out of school for a week or two and attempting to keep your house clean for the in-laws -- we know you’re busy. These activities, though, are as easy as they are fun.

Make Bottlecap Stamps
Dig out some of those bottle caps out of the recycling to make a fun stamping project for the kids. All you need are caps, holiday-themed foam stickers and an inkpad. Their pictures will make perfect thank you notes after the holidays! And if you’re looking for more easy kid-DIY gifts for family members, check out our favorites.

Give Baby a Silent Night
There’s nothing we love more than watching our baby sleep peacefully -- and these curtains remind us of that magic. Made to embody the tapestry of the stars, this great Etsy find is a sweet last-minute gift for baby’s nursery. 

Have a Snowman Breakfast
Get a smile in the morning with this adorable snowman breakfast from A Little Loveliness. It’s easy: two different sizes of pancakes, chocolate chips for the buttons and eyes, bacon for the scarf, a berry for the hat and marshmallows for the snow. (Here are some more fun ideas for kid-approved holiday treats.)

Keep 'Em Busy Without TV
Though every channel is playing non-stop back-to-back holiday movies and shows, you don’t want your kids sitting in front of the television the entire time they’re off from school. From tie-dying the snow with spray bottles to hosting the winter Olympics, these fun winter activities will keep ‘em active and happy.

Create a Holiday Keepsake (and Memory!)
Instead of hanging up a wreath this year, have the whole family dip their hands into a holiday craft. Using grown-up hands at the bottom and little hands at the top, you can create this family Christmas tree. For other holiday craft ideas, check this out.
