As T has been getting older, I’ve involved her more and more with the projects that I’ve made to take to her classmates. Even when writing cards, we usually had her color on one side just to add a personal touch to the note.
With Christmas approaching, I’d like to get her involved in making some gifts for her classmates. The only problem…there are over 20. That plus three teachers means far more crafting than one three year old can handle. So my challenge this year is to find gifts that we can make together, but that don’t take so long that I’m driven mad by the sheer quantity!
These candy cane lollipops were made for Valentine’s day, but could be just as cute for Christmas! (via Not So Idle Hands)
T isn’t interested in anything Christmas unless it’s got Rudolph in it, which means she would be ALL over handing out these cute little treat bags from Dollar Store Crafts. Then again, we could also replicate these adorable ornaments made by Elaine’s Creations.
You can’t get much simpler than candy stuffed in a tube…and now that all the Halloween candy is gone in our house, it’s time to stock up on Christmas goodies! (via Party Box Design)
I’m on the fence on this one. Kids love playdough; and I like the fact that it’s not more junk food to dole out responsibly. But on the other hand, playdough is messy. Do I want to be the parent that sends home this much of an inevitable mess? (via Artful Parent)
Do you send gifts home with your kid’s classmates? I’d love to hear any other ideas!
