I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving celebration. The Christmas season is upon us and many of you may be crossing out your gift lists this super shopping weekend, or staying home to begin decorating.
If you fancy something crafty with the kids, here's an idea:
Make your own gingerbread houses! Instead of the cookie and candy kind, make some that will last for years to come. And throw in some recycling by using blah cardboard like empty cereal or tissue boxes. Paint them, glue them together, embellish with stickers and paper cutouts, then shower with glitter.
Here are a few more:
Or an entire village.
Put these on the table in the foyer or atop a mantle.
Have each child make her/his own.
Have an exciting weekend!
