"The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before." President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Christmas crafts for the kids

Is there any mom out there trying HARD to keep the kids busy on these last few days before Christmas??? I know I am so here are a few random ideas we came up with just using things we had around the house.

Toilet paper roll reindeer
pipe cleaner and jingle bell wrist music makers (that is what they call 'em)

snowman made from cotton balls and pompoms on a paper plate (not sure were the eyes and mouth are but they sure had fun making these)
tree ornaments using stickers
foam bells and letters (pretty proud that my 2 1/2 yr old spelled Rex without knowing it)
gum drop wreaths
And these are their craft stockings that hang in the hallway so they have a place to put all their fun crafts they have made the last few days.

Other activities we have done:
lace fruit loop necklaces, colored a lot of pictures, candy cane reindeer, made snow flakes, made a door hanger for their rooms.

Have a great Christmas everyone! See you next week!!
