With December right around the corner and the holiday season kicking into high gear, it’s time to start thinking about all the wonderful crafts we can make to add festive cheer to our family celebrations. Paper garlands, strings of popcorn and cranberries, glittered pinecones…these are the things that come immediately to mind. But why not branch out this year and explore some new holiday crafts with your children? Try printing with sponges, corks, corrugated cardboard, or other found objects to create your own wrapping paper. Basic brown paper bags can be transformed into spectacular gift bags by layering on paper, ribbon, buttons, and beads. Customize a plain gift tag with a drawing or collage, or decoupage a photo frame for someone special. The possibilities are endless!
