Christmas Crafts for Kids






We recognize that the world has become a global village and kids can benefit from learning how others celebrate important holidays.

We've asked some of our friends to share their Christmas crafts and experiences with us as we take a "virtual" Christmas tour around the world.

Rita Petersen Goren hails from Denmark and shares her childhood memories with us, starting with a "Flette Jule-Hjerter."

This woven paper Christmas heart basket can be used as a tree ornament, or filled with sweets and given as a gift. Invented by Hans Christian Andersen in 1867, this traditional Danish tradition is sure to become one of your favorites. For more information, log on to www.haabet.dk.
