Tis the season for giving gifts, so why not make some of those gifts not only memorable but something that can be enjoyed for years to come. Making it a gift that can double as a holiday décor from here on out. Here are some ideas to consider.
The kiddos are either already home for winter break or are getting ready to be on winter break. A lot of them are looking for things to do, so why not give them a few projects that will not only occupy their mind some, but keep them out of trouble as well.
Holiday cards are a fun and easy project for most little ones to get involved with. Children of any age can spend hours creating these treats to either give away or perhaps they can create an image that represents the holidays to them. This is a fantastic opportunity for children to explore their creative side and imagination.
If your child isn’t particularly artistic maybe stickers are the way to go for them. Go with them to the craft store and let them pick out stickers that speak to them in some manner. Stickers of their favorite characters are available and there are also stickers that represent different aspects of the holidays. Let them take these stickers and tell a story on paper. They can finish off the image by coloring around it and adding to the overall look. Once again this image can be used as the front of a card to either a parent or grandparent or it can just be a holiday image they want to create for fun.
Perhaps your child is a little more artistic. Drawing a picture can be fun and entertaining for them. They can color those images and add glitter to them and really make it sparkle and shine. There are crayons and markers available that can easily be cleaned up and corrected in case the project gets a little out of hand. By sitting your child down with these tools you are inviting them to not only have hours of fun but to keep their minds stimulated as well.
This is also the time of year where you may take a lot of photos. Why not make them into a collage that you can display for years to come. Those same stickers you were using earlier make a GREAT way to attach the photos to a larger piece of paper for display purposes. By writing the year on the collage you can look back for years to come and see and remember those special times.
Once these projects are complete you’re going to want to display them. Presenta Plaque has perfect ways to not only display them but preserve them as well.
