Here’s a quick idea for a fun craft to do with a group of children or just one or two! I did this with the kids in our neighborhood playgroup last year and they all seemed to enjoy it.
You will need: 1 marshmallow, 2 doilies, a toothpick, some ribbon, red and black sharpies, tacky glue or hot glue, and some yellow embroidery floss or pipe cleaner for a halo.
Directions: Fold one doily in half, and the other doily in quarters. Glue the quartered doily on top of the half- doily, as shown in the picture. Poke the toothpick up through the middle of the half- doily; the marshmallow goes on the exposed toothpick end. Glue in place. Cut a small piece of yellow floss or pipe cleaner and make your halo- glue it on. Use the ribbon to make a loop to hang on the tree- glue that in place too. Use the sharpies to make a face on the angel.
Fun, easy craft for the kiddos!
This year, I think I am going to have our playgroup make this simple but very cute ornament from Fun Home Things:
What crafts are you planning to do with your kids this year?
