Christmas Crafting: Part 1
Either way, I think it was worth the time and effort getting ready while they napped (which meant I didn't get to the fifty loads of laundry waiting for me as a result of the dry-wall disaster last week) to have something new and exciting to do when they woke up. I also planted little tote bags (with their names) that had reindeer antlers, jingle bells and a cute stuffed animal to get them awake and enthusiastic. I really want them to know what the true meaning of Christmas is and I'd like to share the wonder and the fun that come along with the holidays in general (though I think I could just hibernate until sometime next March if left to do so).
What kind of crafts do you (oh moms of toddlers) do with your toddlers? I'd love ideas to try out on the kiddos. I'm looking for something with cotton balls. Snowmen or snowflakes sounded fun but I'm not convinced that glue sticks are the best choice when your medium is a cotton ball. Any input would be greatly appreciated!
