Decking the Halls with PEEPS (last minute craft ideas for christmas)

I still can’t believe tomorrow is Christmas Eve.  The seasons and years fly by.  Since there is no school tomorrow and the weather isn’t supposed to be good, crafts are always great for killing time.  Back in the fall I attended a PEEPS event.  I discovered many great recipes but I was most impressed by their passion to bring families together by using PEEPS for crafting.

We recently came up with our own activity that would be perfect for any age.  It’s easy to make and makes a great centerpiece for Christmas Eve and/ or Christmas Day dinner. All you need is a poinsettia, peppermint, glue (fabric glue, craft glue, or glue gun) and your favorite Holiday PEEPS, available at your local drug store while out doing last-minute shopping.  Let your child glue on their choice in PEEPS.  Teach them about patterns or let their imaginations run free!  If you use a glue gun, your child will need help so they don’t burn themselves.  (see below image for more craft ideas from a PEEPS SneakPeep Event)PeepsPoinsettia

Stocking Stuffer Ideas

17 Dec

stocking stuffers

The World of Eric Carle Chunky Colored Pencils and Starter Stencil Set:  Perfect for little ones who love art.  Draw shapes from the beloved book The Hungry Caterpillar!

Snowman Nail Polish:  For the girly girls!  Adorable! Available at Rite Aid

Holiday Peeps:  Definitely try the Chocolate Mouse Reindeer, the chocolate dipped peppermint peeps, and the Gingerbread men! YUM.

Mr Frost Melting Snowman by Two’s Company:  Contains all the materials to make a snowman. Once he’s built, watch him melt!

Super Duper Reindeer Pooper:  Add a little humor to your stocking.  My girls saw this at a store last year and couldn’t stop laughing.  I went to go back and buy it but it was sold out.  Can’t wait to give it to them this year.

Brush Pets:  Make dental care fun.  Brush Pets, from the makers of Pillow Pets, are the perfect stuffer to encourage good dental habits, especially after all the candy canes and desserts from the Holidays

Cake That Individual Serve Cake From Old World Gourmet: Easy for kids to mix together and make for a delicious treat after school. Just add milk (let your child measure it out) and microwave for about 90 seconds.  We love the Cinnamon Caramel!
