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.)

We just painted our homemade clay ornaments last night. :)

Later this month, on the 17th, we are making 6 homemade gift projects with our local MOMS Club.  I'm helping prepare for it this week so I'll know more about what we're making later.

My daughter is home from school with a cold & cough, so she is making a homemade scrapbook for Grandma today.  Thanks for the great ideas!

I spent the day in school with my daughter today and she made a couple of gifts for her friends.  She also made puppets and pretend food for her class.
