Holiday Kid Craft Link Up | Week 12

 

Welcome to week 12 of the Holiday Kid Craft Link Up!

The idea of the Holiday Kid Craft Link Up is to link up any Fall, Halloween, Christmas, Hanukkah, Winter, New Years, any holiday or seasonal craft from now until the end of December.
  • The craft must be kid friendly
  • Do not link up your giveaways
  • Submit the url of your post, not the blog's main page
  • Include my button if you wish or link to me please
  • Visit other blogs, this way we can all learn a new craft for our kids 
  • Your kids craft can be a new craft or one from your archives
  • Please link to where you found the craft from if it's not your original           

This week I'm sharing our Advent Calender Days 7, 8, & 9


Day 7 Making Jingle Bell Wreaths
We used glitter sticks and jingle bells that were sent to us by craftprojectsideas.com.
We were trying to mimic the Jingle Bell picture on the package, and we came close and I think they came out cute.
We strung the bells first. The children did really well with this. After twist around a pencil and  take off , form a circle, twist on top and tie a bow with another glitter stick.

Day 8 Making Star Ornaments
 We  made our star ornaments with these craft sticks also provided by craftprojectideas.
We used buttons, glue and twine.
We used four craft sticks, glued together to form a star.
Added buttons to decorate and twine and to hang on the tree. Very simple and fun!

Day 9 Write a Letter to Santa
 I found this Santa page from a Google search.
 I had to write ask and write for the tots.
The two year old said she wants a bird and a ring.
The twenty month old said she wants toys.
And the five year old to be next week wrote that he wants a Zombie Maker.
Well alrighty then!
After writing the letters we addressed them to Santa at the North Pole and put them in the mail box.
This had to be the best part!
Now it's your turn to link what you and your child have been up to! I can't wait to see!

Hey Lori, how do you get your linky party to do images? Do you pay the fee for Inlinkz? I have thought about doing that since I think the images add so much to a linky party, but wasn't sure if there was a free way to do it... Thanks!
