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!

We got our 4 year old ds some construction paper & glitter glue so he can make his own Christmas cards this year- we'll be helping him make them this weekend & I can't wait! :)

He's too little to make a card, but he will be great at smearing some finger paint on our cards as his signature!

I bought the supplies this morning and appreciate this idea. After my toddlers afternoon nap we are going to decorate a Popsicle photo frame for her grandparents who do so much for her and her brother. I'm thinking about getting magnets for it too.
