Creative Play Challenge Day 8: Make a Special Homemade Gift or Card

Posted by   + Show Post

Giving a gift from the heart this holiday season doesn't have to take a lot of time, and it can really nourish your child's imagination. Today, ask your child to draw a picture, decorate a frame, write a poem or story, or create a little scrapbook-any homemade creation they'd like!

What did your child create?

(P.S. To stock-up on your Arts & Crafts collection, here are a few items we'd recommend.)  

If you missed yesterday's activity, you can find it here. If you haven't signed up for the Creative Play Every Day Challenge yet, you can do so here!

Hand print Christmas trees sounds like a great idea! We are going to do that with my pre-k class this year! Thanks for the suggestion.

DD is at school, so we will do something later.  We have a bunch of the tri-tip beads, need to check the net for some new easy Christmas crafts to make with them.
