Christmas advent crafts-part 1

In this post I shared with you my idea for what our family is doing for advent this year. I have found some very cute crafts for us to do and I am going to share them with you. Here is what I have found so far.

Over at Crap I've Made Char posted about this Eddie Ross wreath made out of Christmas ornaments. Although I love the color combination, it just doesn't say Christmas to me. Char made her version out of red, green and silver ornaments and that is the look I want to go for. The best thing is that she got all of her ornaments from the Dollar Tree.

The next one that I found

Lori over at Goody Goody Gumdrops made these cards with her kids and even her 3 year old was able to get in on the action. She show you how she made them. Go check it out.

Next on the list

 Cathie Filian is the co-host of DIY's Creative Juice and she also has her own blog. On it she shares this idea for making a handprint wreath. I think my kids will really enjoy this one. The love having there hands traced.

Last one for today

Gail over at That Artist Women tells us how to make this penguin snow globe ornament. My oldest loves penguins so she will really enjoy this one along with the rest of the kids.

I am still looking for Christmas craft ideas for kids, so if you know of any good crafts please leave me a suggestion or the link in the comment section. Thanks
