I love involving the kids as much as possible in making gifts for Mothers Day! I love receiving homemade gifts, I think it’s so much more meaningful and I know I will cherish them for many years! I feel the same when it comes to gift giving, especially on Mothers Day!
This year Christian has decided he wants to design, build and paint a bird house for two special woman in our life 🙂 And don’t you worry, I will post about it as soon as he’s finished!
Until then, here are inspiring, kid-friendly crafts!
I am part of an AWESOME mommy panel organized by Two in Diapers and Naptime Review. Each Saturday, we will bring you fresh new ideas and advice about motherhood.
Getting your preschooler dressed: Drawing the battle lines
Here is what Mom Connection shared:
Hi! I’m Cassie from Two In Diapers, and I’m a mommy to three sweet babies, ages 4, 3, and 18 months. This is a fun holiday project I do with my kids:
Well, we have two actually! While I’m not the craftiest momma around, I definitely love to bake and have a killer sweet tooth. Not surprisingly, my kiddos and I like to get into the holiday spirit by doing activities related to sweets.
We definitely always decorate a gingerbread house. I use the word “decorate” because until this point we have always bought the prebaked ones that you “glue” together with frosting and decorate. You can view our latest here. When I was a kid, my mom used to bake these elaborate gingerbread villages from scratch. I would love to do that someday, but for now my kids are little and these things don’t last long around here! We do have SO much fun putting them together and decorating them! Our only complaint is that there always seems to be a large shortage of frosting…
Our other holiday tradition is baking and decorating sugar cookie cutouts to give out as holiday treats to our friends! We actually do put quite a bit of effort into decorating them beautifully, and they are SO tasty! I’ll be posting photos and a recipe after we create this year’s batch this weekend! The kids really enjoy handing them out to their friends and teachers at school as well. The fun time spent in the kitchen baking and grooving to holiday tunes is priceless, and the end result is pretty special too.
This is a fun h
Love to hear from you!
Crafting with your kids is a lot of fun! It’s a great time for them to use their creativity and imagination! We always really enjoy making fun crafts that relate to the current season or Holiday. With Christmas right around the corner, we are in full swing around here with crafting 🙂 I thought it would be fun to take our mind off the hustle and bustle and get our hands dirty, literally!
- construction paper
- craft paint, paint brush
- googly eyes
- pom pom balls, or similar
- hot glue gun and glue
- white crayon
I have just been itching to start decorating for Christmas, but instead I’m embracing the important Holiday before Christmas, Thanksgiving! Let’s not forget about it people, it depicts a very important message to our children about being thankful and spending time with family!
Enjoy spending time with your little ones and spark their creativity…Here’s a few adorable crafts to make with them!!
