Kids’ DIY Christmas
Children love to give gifts that they’ve made. How many of us have proudly worn a macaroni necklace created by one of our favorite children? This project will show you how to help your child create a gift that is useful and lasting. Best of all, children will learn a little about science and gardening. Fun and cheerful tags using the Here’s to Cheers bundle from the Stampin’ Up! 2016 Holiday Catalog complete the gifts, and they’re packaged in the 6” x 12” Gusseted Cellophane Bags. Use the leftover bags to create a cute wreath to hang on your front door. Children will be proud that they helped with décor and gift giving this season. This would make a fun class for older elementary or middle school children, or for children and parents.
This is my design for October for Craft Project Central. To get the instructions, simply subscribe to October, or select one of the 3- or discounted 6- or 12-month packages. Or – leave a comment on my project on the Craft Project Central site by October 31, and I’ll enter you into a drawing to receive a free subscription!
And don’t forget – you can also enter the Creating Pretty Cards sketch challenge for another chance to win a free subscription. What are you waiting for? This month’s sketch is super fun, so get creating!
Just an extra plug for this project – it’s perfect for kids of all ages. Even my two year-old granddaughter helped plant the seeds in the “greenhouse.” (Of course, she and the cat both wanted to play with it after, because, hey, who can resist those crinkly bags? I chalked it up to a fun sensory activity.) And the wreath is perfect for any child learning to tie his or her shoes. What a great project for helping develop those small motor skills!
Hope you give this month’s projects a try. Each one has been fabulous!
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a wonderful day.
