I don't know if you are like me, but when I see those cute fun foam or felt kits that the craft stores have for kids to do, I just want to buy them all and make them with my grandkids. But then, I end up with a bunch of little cute ornaments or just plain figures that I don't really know what to do with besides sit them on my shelves or hang on the tree. So, when Emily brought me this cute owl with her hand prints as the wings, I thought to myself that there must be better ways to use them and enjoy the memories that come with creating them together.
So, I brainstormed and created with some of my grandkids and we came up with a few ideas that we hope you will love!
Place Cards and Napkin Rings:
Of course the children can give just the craft all by itself as an ornament or a refrigerator magnet. But here are a few of other ideas to expand their choices.
Make a Wreath!
While I was looking at different craft kits at Hobby Lobby, I found a white garland of pom poms. (They have lots of choices.) I thought, what a great idea to make a wreath with this and the felt Santa kits that I have!
It came out so cute! Here is what I did:
My grandkids are going to love it!
There are so many different kits to choose from, you can make any theme. A Nativity Wreath would be a great way to talk about the true meaning of Christmas as you craft it together.
Can you think of other ways to use these festive craft kits? Let me know in the comments!
