Crafts from Christmas Past

As I’ve mentioned before, M is in a no-crafts kind of mood lately.   Right at the beginning of craft-heaven season.  Sigh.  It may be pointless, but I’m still trying to come up with some fun crafts to do with him this year for Christmas.  I’ll talk about my plans in another post (soon, I hope!), but I thought it might be fun to show you some things M made last year, pre-blog.
In case these inspire you with any ideas of your own, M was just under 28 months old when he made these.
A Rudolf made with a cut out of M’s foot and two cutouts of his hands, along with a pom-pom and some googley eyes:xmas crafts 2008 (5)
A wreath that he painted and glittered (cut from a paper plate) and then put stickers all over:xmas crafts 2008 (1)
Some salty snowflakes… if I remember correctly, this was just tempera and salt mixed together.  He used blue and white paints, and we hung it up as a mobile (the salt made them somewhat sparkly, but you can’t see it here):xmas crafts 2008 (2)
A cotton ball snowman, which was a huge hit (like the backward nose?):xmas crafts 2008
And a Christmas tree decorated with colored pasta, which we hung up in his room:xmas crafts 2008 (4)

Have a beautiful day! :)


  1. We had an identical snowman last year!

    Great ideas!

  2. Those are so awesome - a snowman and a reindeer are my favorites here. Thanks for sharing!

  3. These are cool Nicole, here's hoping you can get him inspired to do some crafting this year.

  4. My son (27 months) is on a craft-strike right now too, and I've got SO many fun things I want to do for Christmas. Hoping the craft strike ends soon for both of us! Thanks for sharing your old crafts though...they are super cute!

  5. Bear loves cotton balls. Think I'll try the snowman with her later this month. Thanks for great craft ideas.

  6. Thanks for the reminder about dyed pasta, I haven't done that for so long and it looks great on the tree

  7. Oh, how funny - we just did the same moose craft! I have it scheduled to post tomorrow.

  8. Love the crafts. I made the hand and foot print reindeer with my daughter today, and posted a picture with a link to you blog on mine. Thanks you so much! Happy Holidays.
