Creative Play Challenge Day 1: Make Your Own Holiday Decorations!

Posted by   + Show Post

Decorating the house together is a wonderful activity, but so is the act of creating these decorations together! Arts & crafts is always a great time to share creativity, and there's no better time than the holidays! Paper snowflakes, seasonal cutouts, and paper chains in holiday colors are a few of our favorites, and can make the house look festive and special!

Today, pick ONE decoration to make with your child, and tell us what you created!

We made our own advent Christmas tree calendar last week. I'm working on wrapping some Christmas lights around my old tomato cages to put in my flower pots out front. Then here in the next couple weeks we're going to make some cinnamon dough ornaments!

We made snowflake paper mache it was so much fun.  This weekend we'll paint them grey and white and add glitter then hang them around the house.
