  • Mine are older now, but we used to do crafts holidays, & even held an annual Santa's Workshop that we invited their friends to every year...I miss them. Some of our projects were Paper Bag Pumpkins just stuff paper lunch bags with newspaper, twist the top of the bag to make a stem, tie with rafia, paint the stem green & the bottom orange & add faces , Turkey Napkin Rings, Bread Dough Ornaments, you can buy clear glass Christmas Tree Ornaments, remove the metal top, let the kids swirl different colors of paint inside leave them open to dry, & make sure they don't put too much paint inside!!

    We also did gingerbread houses, sometimes haunted for Halloween, sometimes Christmas ones. For I'd bake the Gingerbread ahead, make kits, on Thanksgiving we'd divide into teams. Each team would make a holiday Gingerbread house, we'd leave them out all month. My father in law was a contractor, things could get a little competitive!

  • Dee, do you make the ginger bread yourself? I'll have to find a recipe for the ginger bread. ;-)

  • My favorite thing to make for the Christmas season are cinnamon ornaments. They become the tags on gifts and I sell tons of them at the local craft shows. My 5 year old loves making the foam houses....we get them after the season on clearance at Michaels and then save them for the next year.
