Lucy and Emily are currently six and four, and if they aren’t doing gymnastics then all the want to do is craft. Craft, craft, craft, craft, craft!
I thought I’d put together a little gift guide of crafts that they either have and love or have put on their Christmas lists.
These diamond painting crafts have been a huge hit. We have the one in the picture, and we also have the woodland creatures pack. After a little guidance, both girls can now do these independently which is key!
This weaving loom was a Christmas gift from last year and has provided hours of crafting entertainment for our entire family! We all enjoy picking the patterns and weaving.
You can’t go wrong with Paint by Stickers! There are so many different options, and this is another activity that can easily be done independently. My girls often do these in their beds for a few minutes before lights out.
Lucy really wants a friendship bracelet kit for Christmas, and I’m considering this one because it looks like it uses thicker strings than the embroidery floss that I used when I was a kid. It seems like thicker string would be easier for her six-year-old sized fingers to handle.
These plush craft pillows have been a huge hit with the girls. They each have done one and loved it. Please don’t tell them that they’re getting more for Christmas!
Lucy saw this Crayola art set in a catalog and fell in love. Honestly, I can’t blame her! This will be coming her way on Christmas, and here’s hoping she’s like her mama and will keep everything in its place!
I hope this gift guide was a little bit helpful! I’m thinking of doing some for board games, books, and stocking stuffers as well. ‘Tis the season!!
