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.

What are some of your favorite holiday items to gift to kids, friends, coworkers, neighbors, or teammates?

Christmas Ornaments: Build Your Own!

Do your boys love legos? If so come really close, be very quiet, and don’t let anyone see your computer screen for the next few moments.

If you need some new ideas for gifting fun holiday items this season, look no further. We have found lego Christmas ornaments. Your boys will love building their own Christmas decorations and hanging them from the tree. Chris McVeigh has dozens of fun Christmas ornaments that are going to make your boys gas this year when they open their presents. Each kit comes complete with directions and a kit to hang the ornament from the tree. You can choose from their many different series including Geek, Gingerbread and More, Plate series, and Christmas Trees.

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.
