HOMEMADE HOLIDAY CARDS & FUN KID DECORATIONS
Holiday season is about family, giving, sharing, making memories and having fun. My kids love crafts and I decided to make some fun hanging cards with my two little ones this holiday season. It's fun, easy, and most of all it's something that the kids are proud to display.
Here is what you will need:
(the amount of noodles and the size of the paper is up to you)
~plastic cups for water
~noodles (few different shapes is fun)
~thick presentation paper in red, green and brown
~some fun rhinestones
Add few drops of food color to about 8oz of tap water. Simply let the kids be creative and let them color the noodles. The longer they stay in the food color the brighter the noodle will be~but don't let them stay in there too long, or they will become soggy and will break. I would recommend no more than 3 minutes. Afterwards lay them down on the paper towel to dry.
In the meantime, using the red paper, cut a rectangle and using the green paper cut out the shape of a Christmas Tree. For the tree stand use the brown paper.
After the noodles have dried have the kids glue down all the paper pieces and then add the noodles and the rhinestone. Let the creativity and fun begin.
You can also use stickers, beans, and any other fun, kids safe, material you'd like. Remember to have fun.
