Christmas Crafts

I have been collecting ideas for Christmas crafts.  I thought I would share some of them here.  If I know where I got them from, I will let you know.  If I don't know, and you do, I would love it if you pass it along.

Santa Cocoa
Fill the pointed end of a disposable icing bag with crushed peppermints.
Add some mini marshmallows followed by hot cocoa mix then lots more mini marshmallows at the larger end.
Place a plastic spoon in the bag for stirring.
Twist the end and close tightly with a twist tie covered by a holiday ribbon bow.

Poem to add:

These aren't just five snowmen
As anyone can see.
I made them with my hand
Which is a part of me.
Each year when you trim the tree
You will look back and recall
Christmas of [year]
When my hand was just this small.

QUICK DIRECTIONS: Christmas balls for the tree... paint child hand with acrylic paint... put handprint on ball.... let dry... then add the hats, faces etc with either paint or permanent markers..... add the poem to a piece of paper, and tie on with a ribbon
