Holiday Crafts With Kids

For the past few years I’ve done all my holiday shopping at Tuesday Morning. It may sound crazy, but when you look around the store and see they have something for every person in your family and every room of the house, you’ll quickly realize that it’s a one-stop shop! With the holidays right around the corner, I went by my local Tuesday Morning for some holiday crafting supplies and came home with a ton of goodies!

The store had an entire aisle full of holiday items including décor, gift-wrapping supplies, ornaments, etc. I picked up some supplies there and then quickly rushed over to the craft aisle – my favorite!

My kids helped pick out some decorative yarns, stamps, beads, glitter glues, buttons and a chunky stack of holiday-themed scrapbooking and card-making supplies. My kids really enjoy making the family’s holiday cards every year so they even picked out a cute Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer stamp to use in this year’s cards. I like to give the kids free rein for their holiday cards, and our family members have really enjoyed them in the past. I’m sure with the new supplies I got this year they will be a hit again!

We found the cutest little stretched burlap canvases (only $0.99!) and used them to create an embellished felt Christmas tree craft. The kids had a lot of fun with these! Watch my video to see how we made them.

I also whipped together a holiday centerpiece using some wool roving and a sparkly eyelash yarn I found. We alternated the decorative balls with some crinkled paper, and we tied the whole thing up with some red jute. So easy and festive … and the kids got to take part in all the fun! #winning

I love shopping at Tuesday Morning.
