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 made a snow theme picture with cotton balls, and paint.  This was a lot of fun.  Lunch and nap time :)

My kids love drawing and draw daily. My son (2 years old) drew a page of shapes this morning.

 We made handmade cards to send to the troops in girl scouts, we are going to make more cards in cubscouts for local nursing homes.

This is what we started doing since DD's first Christmas. Everyone loves homemade gifts from her

I was thinking of doing something with DS foot prints and hand prints to send to family for this Christmas. Can't afford to but them stuff, bit I think homemade is better cause it comes from the heart.
