How are we only three days away from Christmas? Seriously! The last two months have disappeared and I find myself sitting in awe of how close we are getting to another new year. I guess the saying is proving true, “times flies when you’re having fun!” We have been homebodies since before Thanksgiving but we have still been having a lot of fun. The new campground is wonderful for hanging around right outside the camper and a trip to Tyler meant we got a day of play in at their favorite park!

We also had a wonderful adventure exploring the Mayborn Museum with some friends and while I shared all about that visit I realized I have not been sharing any of the merrymaking we have had at home! So, here are the eight crafts we have completed recently and two more we hope to have fun with before Christmas. These would be perfect for keeping kids entertained while impatiently waiting for Christmas Eve!

1. Paper Plate Ornaments

2. Handprint Wreaths

3. Fingerpainted Angels

4. Birthday Cards for Jesus

5. My Melted Snowman

6. Handprint Santa Clause
