Busy Busy Busy

It's the most wonderful time of the year. This is it - the holiday season. Crazy shopping, crazy cooking, crazy wrapping, crazy decorating ... I think that it is just the craziest time of year. This year though, I'd like to create some new traditions with my children.
We have all the traditions of baking and adorning the tree with pretty plushy ornaments (three year old in the house). I'd like to do something new this year - something exciting and different. I think that I will get the kids together and make ornaments. I think that would be so much fun. It would have to be super simple and easy because, like I said there will be a three year old involved. I am looking through some books searching for something that all of us could do without injuring ourselves or each other and something that wouldn't cause my entire house to be messy.
I like these ideas:

I'll let you know which ones we ended up doing and how it went :)

  1. Thank You for sharing these ideas! I have a 2 year old so I know how hard it is to find crafts for young ones... I definitley think we will be doing our own twist on "Reindeer food" tonight (=
