Candy Cane Reindeer: Christmas DIY Fun

Now that the kids are going to be done with school for the holidays you may be getting ready for holiday parties at school or with an extra-curricular your kids attend. This can mean you have to bring a goodie bag, a potluck dish, or a present. I always find it is best to go cute but simple. This year that is exactly what I am doing.

These are so simple, so cute. They can be eaten or played with, and kids think they are so much fun to help create. I have put my little elves to work and have them helping me create these beauties this year since it is their friends and classmates that will be receiving them. I found this fun tutorial from One Little Project. It has simple and straightforward pictures that make it easy for my kids to help me with the craft. I love when crafts are simple. After all, it is the thought that counts, and the effort that went into creating something, not how difficult it was to make it.

Your boys will love interacting with their new toy/Christmas decoration, and it will be fun for the whole family. The incredibly cool part is once the holidays are over you can disassemble it and pack it away for next year. Unlike most ornaments that need to be protected while packed away this will be perfectly safe. And unlike most gingerbread houses which need to be eaten or thrown away. At the end of the holiday this one can be kept and enjoyed for years to come!

Check out Chris McVeigh and his incredibly cool building kits now. It is the gift that will build memories for years.

Spring is here and that usually means that baby showers are happening. While babies are born all year long, they seem to be more prevalent during the spring.
