Holiday Projects for Kids Waiting for Santa

Christmas Holly Header

As a child, I remember the days leading up to Christmas being full of restlessness.  After all, it’s boring waiting around for Santa to visit with all of those new toys and gifts we’ve been dreaming about for months.  Here are a few free or very low cost projects to keep the little ones busy while they’re waiting for the man in the red suit to arrive.

    I am intrigued by the DIY Pet Paw Print Ornaments. I’d love to see a blog on you making this stuff and getting a paw print from Brenna.

    • Andrea, it’s not as easy as you might think! I bought a kit years ago to do this, and it took several attempts to get a paw print that resembled an actual paw print. I still have two that I hang on my tree every year, and I gave one to Brenna’s Grandma. I’m not sure if I’m up for that challenge again, but if I have time this week, perhaps I’ll give it a go! Remember, we still have to put her in an elf outfit…that’s going to be an experience in itself!
