Our Five Favorite Holiday Crafts for Kids

If you've decided to take a pass on shopping today, never fear, there's still plenty of holiday fun to be had! In our house, the day after Thanksgiving always kicks off the holiday season. We put on some festive tunes, whip up a batch of hot cocoa, set out some Christmas cookies and settle in for a family friendly holiday movie marathon. I'm talking White Christmas, Meet Me in St. Louis, Miracle on 34th Street, Home Alone, Elf...I could go on and on!

And while the flicks will keep our kiddos occupied for a while, we definitely need to have something else up our sleeves...And that's where our favorite holiday crafts for kids come in. By having some activities ready to keep restless little hands busy, us grown-ups can fully enjoy our holiday movies sesh!
