Holidays are here!
September 30, 2019
Believe it or not, multiple holiday celebrations are just around the corner. Celebrations are a great time to teach kids about preparation and about being generous. First up is Halloween. I’m not a big fan of Halloween, but it is a great time to give things away. Consider giving away craft kits instead of candy. Here are two ideas for give-away crafts packets:
Pipecleaner puppets – Grandma has instructions that you can print out and include in your craft kit. I’ve done a lot of these. They fit nicely into a plastic sandwich bag. There are small parts, so use them for kids 4+. Click on the picture to find out how to make them.
Friendship bracelets from nylons – Grandma has done a lot of these too and has instructions that you can print out and include in your craft kit. They also fit nicely into a plastic sandwich bag. Kids in our 2nd grade classroom LOVE these! Click on the picture to find out how to make them.
