Children's Crafts for Every Holiday

If your children are like mine, they love to help decorate for the holidays. However, many of my decorations are breakable. As such, they can't really help or touch the items. In order to make them feel like they are contributing, and to keep them busy while I decorate, I started giving them fun little crafts that they could do for each holiday. I decided to start this website to share some of our favorite crafting ideas with each of you. I treasure all of the holiday crafts that my children have completed, and I hope that you will love the crafts your child creates just as much. Thanks for visiting my website and happy crafting!
