Making Holiday Cards with your kids
Get out the craft bin and make some homemade cards with your kids. If you are not wanting to make very many at least do it for the Grandparents. You could do hand prints if they are too young to really draw.
A great idea for a hand print to make it look like Santa... Paint the thumb and the base of the palm red, a small white line under the red on the hand, the rest of the hand peach or skin colored and then the fingers all white. turn the card udside down and put the hand print on the card with their thumb out and fingers straight and down. Now turn the card over, draw a smiley face on the skin colored part and you could put a small pompom on the end of the thumb for he hat. I hope I explained that well enough. I am including a picture, it is red on red so it is hard to see but you get the idea. My daughters K class made all their parents calendars out of handprints I will post more ideas from the calendar soon.
Stay tuned for more great holiday ideas and if it is snowing where you are get out and play!
