what craft do you love for your kids to make to give to others as gifts? what was your favorite gift your child(ren) have ever made you?
for grandmom i make a hand print craft every year for xmas. one year was a dish towel with their hand prints on it framed, one year was a plaster hand print set... etc
my kids made me a 'box-o-crafts' for my bday. it was a cereal box wrapped with paper and decorated filled with a bunch of cards, art work and poems they made for me. :)
Take a medium gift box. next take thick string and soak it in glue. different sizes so you can make different shapes. from a circle, square, triangle, etc. let dry unless its fast acting dry. Then take foil and put over the box and string. Now flatten it to show the shapes. You can add paint that adheres to foil or crayons. Put a Ziploc plastic bag inside the box and add a plant. Vines are hearty and can withstand any child's choices as to how to care for that plant until its given to the designated person. It helps them with motor skills, being creative, and about caring for plants! Oh, Did I mention its a lot of fun? LOL
