Last Minute Free Christmas Crafts for Kids

Welcome to the fifth edition of our online magazine, Real Crafts for Real Kids.

This month we're tackling the subject of how to keep kids busy during winter vacation (pre-Christmas presents)!

We hope you enjoy the "read" and find something that "sparks" your creative needs. If you've received this as a forward from a friend, please consider subscribing to the ezine now.

It may be the last minute before Christmas...and you just might find yourselves in a situation where the kids are getting impatient, a little whiny and you're hearing this sentence, "I'm boooorrrred!", just one time too many.

Our answer....check the kitchen cabinets for some paper plates, construction paper, a bit of glue, some glitter...and gather the kids around the kitchen table for some last minute holiday crafting.

It should buy you a few minutes of pre-holiday sanity!

Take a look at our gallery and choose your favorites! Happy Holidays!
