What are some good Thansgiving and Christmas crafts to do with toddlers?

I have an 18 month old and a daughter that will turn 3 in January. What are some good holiday craft ideas that aren't too expensive? Thanks for any ideas! I love this time of year!

  • Hand print turkey's are a cute keep sake. put washable paint on hand (maybe different colors on fingers n brown for palm) Put on little orange beck n legs/feet n a little red waddle on the neck with some construction paper.

    Spray some noodles of your choice with gold paint n let dry (any color you would like) (do not cook) Let kids put them onto pre-cut x-mas shape that has a hole in the center for a picture. you glue pic in place and put a thin piece of cardboard on back of your creation with a hole punch you could add a place for a hanger or ribbon before hand. Makes a great gift.

  • Go to your local craft store and look around, they should have tons of ideas- pick a few that are age appropriate and that you can afford.

  • You could make the construction paper chains with her, like we used to make when I was in school. I loved using them to decorate my room at Christmas time. Just cut strips of construction paper in holiday colors (green, red, white, blue) and let her make circles with tape and connect them all to make a chain.

    Another thing my kids like to do is making cookie dough ornaments. I have a recipe for applesauce dough that hardens nicely and smells great, and you can use cookie cutters to make them, and then paint them with glitter glue and it's really pretty.
