This year I planned crafts for my girl since she loves crafts! She is very picky, however, so I chose carefully. I used my Christmas Pinterest board and let her choose what looked fun to her. I know better than to just pick what I think she will like. I had tons of reindeer crafts pinned since she LOVES reindeer, but to my surprise, she had zero interest in any reindeer crafts!
Many of these ideas came from other blogs and the original idea is linked in the title of the craft, so be sure to visit the blog I got the idea from to see more inspiration for the craft!
I had old scrapbook paper and cut up a huge pile for my kids to create trees with! I helped Ladybug one by one as we measured together and trimmed the edges.
She chose to used stickers for her ornaments.
I am so glad we did this, it turned out so cute and she had a blast making it!
~ Bead Wreath ~
My girl loves beads so I thought this would be a great day. I was wrong. It took her awhile to get into this craft, but once she did, she loved it.
~ Name in Lights ~
This is an old idea from back in my Kindergarten teaching days! Would you believe she even used leftover lights from my Christmas box that I used when I taught K over 10 years ago. They are just colored light pieces, and black rectangle pieces stapled with a loop at the top for stringing. All shapes were cut free hand out of construction paper.
She chose to use only pink, purple and red ~ her favorite colors. She wrote the letters of her name and then I helped her string them on in the correct order.
She insisted it was a necklace and had me tie it up so she could put it on!
~ Bead Candy Canes ~
We have made versions of these before, this year we added Perler Beads to the options, she loved that!
She chose the colors, which is why we have a glittery purple pipe cleaner.
We trimmed the final candy canes down to the size she wanted, and hung them on our tree!
