Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) December 21, 2013
Before heading out to the store to buy a variety of gifts for the family, consider giving a family gift. Gift ideas and a laundry list of fun crafts have been released on Kids Activities Blog. A thoughtful gift to the entire family and fun arts and crafts can encourage family time and togetherness as well as make things simpler during shopping time.
A great family gift idea includes wrapping up a set of favorite family board games together with popcorn and a coupon for pizza. Fun board game choices are The Settlers of Catan, Clue The Classic Edition, and a Ticket to Ride.
A fun special treat maker is the Zoku Duo Quick Pop Maker. It creates yummy popsicles in just minutes. A Pizza baker or a fun Waffle maker are other great snack makers fun for the whole family.
Museum memberships, zoo memberships, or an amusement park season ticket make great family gifts. Other ideas include video games the whole family can play, a gift of conversation from Melissa and Doug, a cuddly blanket, and of course movie or show tickets will be enjoyed by the whole family.
The list of Christmas tree crafts is for all ages and will make beautiful Christmas decor for the holidays. They can turn into handmade presents, too. Use leftover construction paper and a few toilet rolls to make beautiful paper trees.
Another idea includes fabric Christmas tree ornaments that can be strung together to make a fabulous garland. Use felt, styrofoam and glue to make a cute tree. The sticky tree is a craft and sensory bin in one combining art and sensory exploration.
Fun crafts are perfect for a little creative time at home or school. It is such a good feeling to do something creative and spend meaningful time together with the kids. Making heart stone gifts are a perfect craft that reminds the kids and parents to be thankful for many things in life. Talk to the kids while making the crafts about being grateful and showing gratitude.
Another tip is making scented light catchers. These light catchers can be easily made with materials found around the house. Make a set of lovely lanterns that will light up the table for a party or just a weekly night dinner.
The classic friendship bracelets make a fun craft for the afternoon. Talk to the kids about the importance of friendship and what it means to be a great friend. Building a city out of paper bags is easy to do with items found around the house. Building ideas include a hospital, a police station, a grocery store, a bakery, and a school that will transform into a fun afternoon of creative and imaginary playtime.
