It's a little people kind of Christmas

I think us grown ups sometimes get so wrapped up in the business of Christmas that we kind of forget to not only enjoy it but also make it enjoyable for others. Our kids won't remember how immaculately decorated the house was or how many presents everybody received. They will however forever treasure the closeness with you during the Christmas season.

Christmas also give us parents a wonderful opportunity to teach our kids about Jesus, the reason for the season. So, let me ask you this, in what ways are you taking advantage of the Christmas time to instill in your kids some Bible knowledge and a fun time together?

I'd like to share with you some of my favorite 2016 Christmas projects. These activities are easy to do, fun for you and the kids, and also can be used as decorative elements in your home. I hope you give some a try!

1. Nativity finger puppets.

2. Star of Bethlehem.

3.Names of Jesus ornaments.

4. Christmas footprint craft.

5. Cookie jar Christmas craft.

6. Melted bead ornaments.

7. Popsicle stick sleds.

8. Cinnamon sticks Christmas ornament.

9. Botanical ornament.

10. Felt ball garland.

Did all these ideas make you feel crafty? Let me know which one your kids enjoyed the most! 
 Hasta pronto y Feliz Navidad!
