This year, I’d like to give more meaningful gifts to friends & family instead of the usual gift card or material item. I was thinking of making something that my 3 year old daughter & I could do together. Does anyone have any ideas?December 5, 2011 at 8:17 am #22930
My grandchildren and I make Christmas cookies for the neighbors every year. They love making the cookies, taking the time to select the "perfect" combination for each neighbor, putting the pretty little plates together, and making the deliveries with me. After we deliver all the cookies, we always make sure to treat ourselves to the leftovers to celebrate a job well done!December 6, 2011 at 7:25 am #22931
My toddler (with some help from mom and dad) made ornaments for his teacher and some of our family members. It was a good activity, something out of the ordinary but quick and easy enough to keep his attention. We just took Styrofoam balls and let him go to town with markers. Then we assisted in gluing some fun sparkly shapes on them. I’m sure the recipients will enjoy these "works of art"!December 8, 2011 at 2:29 am #22932
A big hit in my class last year was a snow globe project. (Plus it s a good way to show that recycling/reusing can be fun and pretty). We used empty salsa jars, waterproof ornaments, white glitter and hot glue. Here’s a link to the instructions: http://www.teachermomonline.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/Everyday-Adventures-December-PDF.pdf
Also fleece scarves, blankets are super easy to make and low cost. Here are the links to those crafts.
