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!

Okay, I'm cheating on this one because we had a dentist appointment this morning and ran errands.  They are playing with dolls right now while I check CM.  Yesterday, they made 35 Christmas cards in their Sunday School class, and will be continuing to make several hundred Christmas Cards throughout the season.  They will be drawing and designing, stickering and stamping, coloring, cutting and painting!
