These Winter solstice, Christmas, and Yule crafts are the perfect activity to do with your kids this holiday season.
Here we are in the thick of the Winter Holiday season. I’m happy to report our family has managed to keep our activities to a nice balance of not too much and not too little. This weekend we made the obligatory sugar cookies (does any adult really love rolling those darn things out?), made ton of Christmas crafty-things, and both boys had haircuts by yours truly- so as far as i’m concerned, I crushed it this weekend.
This week we will celebrate Winter solstice with a dinner and a late ride around our town to see the lights, do some more Winter crafts.
Here’s a few of my favorite things that we’ll be doing to celebrate this week.
Making these lovely Wishing Cones from Purple Daisy Alchemy…
To make these, write your wishes for the new year on tiny pieces of paper. roll them up and stick them in between the layers of the pine cone-use a little hot glue if you need to. Then simply tie a ribbon and hang on your tree or in your windows, or from a branch…for extra sparkle brush pine cone with some white craft glue and sprinkle with a bit of glitter.
Making coffee filter snowflakes, like these from The Pink Couch
and stringing popcorn and cranberries for a bird’s feast tree outside our kitchen window…
And an edible craft of sorts, this lovely olive and herb treat. You’ll probably find this Olive Wreath from Chickabug Blog next to our cocktails on Christmas Eve…
Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas, and a Happy Solstice and Yuletide Season,
