My kids have been constantly asking me when Christmas is coming. They are so excited for all of the fun and festivities associated with our favorite holiday of the year and honestly — I can’t blame them! I wanted to create something for them that would help to continue their excitement, but help keep them occupied as they wait the endless days until the Big Day arrives. I’ve come up with a simple and inexpensive Christmas kids craft for you to make that they can play with time and again!
Die-Cut Machine or pre-cut shapes (I used the Cricut Explore)
card stock in various colors
low-temp hot glue gun
hot glue sticks
1. Cut out the various shapes from the card stock. If you have a Cricut Explore, you can find the cut files HERE.
2. Use the hot glue to attach the magnets to the back of each piece of card stock. If you’d like to keep these pieces for years to come, I’d suggest laminating them before attaching the magnets.
3. Set the shapes on the cookie sheet.
Seriously, Reagan sat for at least 30 minutes playing with and rearranging all of the shapes. She made the white snowman circles into clouds and pretended the tree was a person. I love that she uses her imagination beyond what the pieces are intended for!
