Holiday crafts with paint, paper, and glue. A Christmas-colored mess, I'm sure, by the time it's all said and done.
But, most importantly, we'll be making memories, and re-making the young family traditions we started just last year when Jake and I made these simple Cinnamon Applesauce Ornaments to hang on our tree together.
One of my favorite things to do with my almost-three year old is create, which is one reason why I'm thrilled to have discovered Kiwi Crate this holiday season.
Kiwi Crate is an imaginative company for children that ships boxes filled with arts & crafts supplies and creative learning activities right to your doorstep! How cool is that?
With a sweet newborn in our home that needs lots of snuggles and one-on-one time of his own, Kiwi Crate has already taken lots of stress, along with most of the work and planning, involved in holiday crafting off my hands.
As far as I see it, less work means more time for fun.
I ordered the Crafty Christmas Crate for Jake this year - a box filled with all we need to make this cute little crumb-and-sticky-finger-free gingerbread house, a gingerbread boy and girl, and 3 homemade Christmas ornaments.
I especially love that it arrives and opens like a gift. You'd think the postman was Santa, himself, when Jake's first crate was delivered!
Speaking of Santa, on Friday, I'll be sharing a few of my favorite creative gift ideas for children, and a Monthly Subscription to Kiwi Crate is at the top of the list.
What are you planning to make with your little ones today? I'd love to hear from you!
Also, if you want to join in on the 12 Days of Intentional Christmas fun, it's definitely not too late to participate - you're welcome to start any time! See this post for more details.
