Holiday Crafts: Winter Circus Pull Toys

This project might require a bit of time, but the results are worth it — you can can finally transform those cheap plastic toys into something timeless…and meaningful (like the toys that we used to get as kids!). If you have older kids, this is a real gem of a project that will give them a sense of pride — they’re Santa’s elves building toys and making the littlest tots smile.

Holiday Crafts: Felt Puppets

A seamstress I am not, but these adorable puppets are doable for even the novice crafter. If your little ones are handy with the scissors, have them help you cut out the shapes to construct each animal. They can also help you choose the colors…who says reindeer have to be brown? Get creative with these and the fun will literally be endless. And they make adorable holiday gifts, too!
