Or, will you be spending Christmas Eve with them and need something to help make the time go by faster for them?
At a loss for what to do with them? Believe it or not, sometimes I can’t think of what to do either!
Here are three Christmas craft activities that you can easily do with them. And, they are all based on reindeer. Wahoo!
Do you have any old burned out Christmas light bulbs? (New ones would work, too.) Light Bulbs — How to Recycle with Style shows how to make this cute reindeer (and Santa and snowman) ornament.
Let your grandchildren hang the ornaments on your tree . Or they could take the ornament home and on theirs.
Cute and clever!
Here’s another fun idea for making Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. This is a fun craft using a wooden spoon.
(I’ve got some old one hanging around in my kitchen drawers. I’ll use those for the craft and then buy me some new ones to cook with.)
This craft is something that even a fairly young grandchild can do.
Make this adorable thumbprint reindeer card. Find the directions on Family Fun.
A little bit of paint. some paper, googly eyes, and pom poms and your all set to go to make this card.
Older grandchildren could add a thumbprint body and draw on legs and a tail. Fun!
