Cracker Crafts

This is a shot of our kiddos carefully putting out Santa’s cookies – lest anyone be left out they are each holding the plate that holds one cookie each child selected as the perfect cookie for Santa. Love.

This Christmas Eve was the first time in a long time that I got to host the family dinner (finally have enough space).  I thought I’d get the kids in on the action by making our own Christmas crackers.  We used the left over paper tubes from Matt’s birthday party arm cuffs and added little treasures we’d picked up on Main street at Urban Source including tiny horses, parachute men, mini slinkis, and small airplanes.  The girls were in charge of the tape and of making a picture for each cracker.  Matt helped me roll them in tissue, add the treats and tie the ends.  It was super fun, fast, and a great addition to our table games on Christmas eve.  In the last photo below you can see our mini-Santa Kate guarding the finished crackers non-nonchalantly while she played – this went on for a whole day until we set the table 😉

Merry Christmas Eve!

    It’s great that you can involve your young kids with the crafts! And even better that they get to participate in an activity that brings their Mom so much happiness and relaxation. Great photos too. I love the one near the front door- your “cracker guardian” blends in to the festive scene at first glance!
