First off we made some Salt Dough Ornaments. The recipe is:
1/2 cup salt,
1/2 cup warm water,
1 cup flour
and I got it from this pin on Pinterest.
Here are ours:
Another favourite for kids is paper chains. We used wrapping paper for ours and cut them into strips.
Another Kid friendly craft is Book Trees. Do you remember making these at school? I remember using old copies of Australian Womens Weekly and it would take AGES seeing as that magazine is massive. Well instead of using old magazines I thought it would be fun to try it out on our old Golden books. We have a tonne of Golden books that we pick up from op shops and garage sales so I picked a few of the tattered ones and explained to the kids that this is a once off and that under no other circumstances are they to rip a part their books!
Anyhow here is how they turned out. I think they will look cute in the kids play area this Christmas.
I did take photo's to post a tutorial for it in case you haven't done it before or have forgotten about them but then found this one on pinterest. It is really easy to follow and she uses candle holders to display hers. Such an awesome idea!
