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!


(For holiday-themed arts & crafts ideas, visit our "Winter Wonderland" inspirational board on Pinterest.)

My 5 year old dd, almost 6, and I made a wreath out of a "wreath ring," a metal one, newspaper, craft wire, spray paint (silver for Hanukkah) and some ribbon.  It's on the front door now...I'll see if I can snap a picture of it later.

We have everything together to start making ornaments for our Jesse Tree.  We did it last year as well and really enjoyed it!
