  • How old? For my preteen kids I picked up foam core boards and markers glue glitter, stickers and odds and ends from my craft stash. Cut the boards into quarters and had them make art pieces for gifts for family members. I also prebaked sugar cookies and let them decorate a bunch to take home.

    For the week after Christmas, give the children old or inexpensive Christmas cards, stickers, school glue or glue sticks, glitter glue, appropriate scissors for the age, markers and card stock. Have them make thank you cards for the people who gave them gifts, or to people they choose. Make sure the cardstock is cut to fit the envelopes you have.
    Best wishes 😇

    Get some canvas frames. PVA glue.
    Some old buttons.
    Print or draw a simple design onto the canvas like a heart, butterfly, cat or other design. Then ask them to glue the buttons within the shape.
    You can also use napkin pictures and decopatch these on. Use Sharpie pens to add details. I used super heros and Disney princesses as themes when I did a workshop with some children and they loved them.
