3 Holiday Kids Crafts

by Lynn Lilly, Nov 08 2022

We are officially in the holiday mix. My family kicked off Christmas fun last weekend by cutting down our own Christmas tree for the first time, having a family craft night, decorating gingerbread cookies and getting the house all glittery and festive! The holidays can be busy but try to slow down and spend some quality time together. Crafting together is the perfect way to have fun together, make memories and get your kids creativity flowing! 

This week on my Crayola live facebook broadcast I am highlighting 3 winter crafts, 2 of which are from the new Crayola CIY Book
