Cookies, Crafts, and Carols– Oh My!

Time: T-7days

The Contender: An on-the-mend wife of one, mother of two who just managed to get her Christmas tree up two days ago.

The Challenge: Coordinating a cookie decorating, holiday crafting, and Christmas caroling extravaganza with dozens of volunteers and children at a local homeless shelter.

My kids are still too young to appreciate the wonderful world of arts and crafts, so I can’t say that we’ve experimented with too many “kiddie” craft projects around my house. However, we all know that this big kid loves all things glue, scissors, baubles, and glitter. So naturally when I was asked to coordinate the pre-caroling craft stations, I happily volunteered for the job.

Care to help me choose a DIY for little fingers?

Paper Bag Reindeer Puppet

Handprint Holiday Wreath

Christmas Tree Ornament

Reindeer Hat

Which one do you like the best? I’ve got to say, I’d love it if a pack of wee ones came to my door singing Jingle Bells wearing handmade reindeer antlers. But maybe that’s just me.

Giddy up, Everybody!
