Do you make Christmas crafts with your children? Every year, I try to do some crafts with my children during December. It’s a nice change of pace from checking off boxes and doing workbooks. Being creative stimulates different parts of the brain. It helps them grow and learn. Yes, it can be messy. But we are learning to clean our messes as we go. As warm as it has been in the South this year, we can even do some messy crafts outside. Remember that children and their clothes are washable. Break out the paints and markers. Sit with them and do the projects, too. Let go of perfectionism and ENJOY this time with your children.
Here is my favorite Christmas craft to do: Cornstarch Ornaments.
Our Zone of the Week is divided up since December starts later in the week. We will start the week in the Living Room, and then we will move to the Front Porch, Entryway, and Dining Room. Get your lace up shoes on every morning. It is going to be a great week!
