December means that the holiday break from school is right around the corner. Two weeks home with the kids can leave you wondering how to keep them busy. At school, I love to do holiday crafts with my students but they have to be easy when you’re making 22 of them! So this week I’ve put together 5 easy Christmas crafts!

  4. Terrific craft!

  5. I was wondering if there is an easier way to get the fake snow into the Christmas ball I love these ornaments but it took me over an hour just to fill 4 of them using a paper funnel since the snow stuck to the plastic funnel I was using

  6. We love making our “all natural” Christmas tree ornaments. We slice up oranges, limes, lemons and apples so that they are circles. Next we put them on pizza pans and place them in a low temperature oven 200 degrees all day to speed up the drying process. While that is drying we make cinnamon ornaments (mini gingerbread men and stars are our favorites) So simple. When all the ornaments are dried and strings are on them for hanging we begin decorating the tree. The fruit and cinnamon begin to scent the home with the warmth of the lights. The dried citrus fruit become like stain glass with the lights behind them.

    In Addition: we also place pine cones on that we find in the yard, hang candy canes and tie the end of branches with raffia bows. We also wrap the base with burlap and all of our packages in brown craft paper (some with decorative stamping) and tied up with torn strips of plaid material, colored raffia and such for bows. The result is a very rustic, naturally charming and wonderfully smelling tree!
