Holiday Crafts & Activities for Kids

I saw these holiday craft and activity ideas recently and just HAD to share them with you!

1. Snowman Slam Bowling

To make our snowmen, decorate six white cups using black and orange craft foam.  To make the snowballs, tightly ball up three white socks. Now, you’re all set up for some fun miniature bowling! (source)

2. Bird Food Ornament

3. Paper Bag Gingerbread House

(I couldn’t find the original posting of this; so, if it’s yours, please tell me so I can give you credit!) Give each kid a brown paper bag. Then show them how to fold the top and glue some paper to the fold (making a roof) and let them go crazy with construction paper. Pretty easy, so many creative possibilities and best of all, it’s completely healthy (although it’s not as yummy)!
