go to michael's (if you have one, or any craft store) and buy finished wooden "plates" (as i call them, not sure what they're really called, just oval shaped pieces of wood that are finished smoothly) and get some red and green handpaint. dip their hands in the paint and make handprints on the "plates". i also, at michael's, buy Christmas scrapbooking stickers and help the little one's arrange them around the "plate". then i write "Merry Christmas", their name and the year which we made the craft on the plate. the "plates" are cheap, ranging from $2-$8 depending on size, and the stickers can be as cheap as $1. good luck and have fun :) we do this every year as a gift from the kids for both mine and hubby's parents & grandparents.
