Milk Carton Cookie Houses

Maya*Made’s milk carton homes are nothing short of showstopping. Cover them with brown craft paper to create a blank canvas and then paint the town — a whole town of carton houses that is! We’re certain your kids will love playing make-believe with these houses and their toys, but they also can be used to gift cookies for the holidays.

Melted Snowman Cookies

Here’s a crafty project you can eat! Making Melted Snowman Cookies is easy following Crazy Domestic’s instructions. Just replace a few organic ingredients. Make your favorite organic sugar cookie recipe, use homemade marshmallows, and make colored icing using natural food dyes. Fun and yummy!

Felt Monogram Ornaments

We love these Felt Monogram Ornaments because they also double as gifts and/or gift toppers. While this project is more of a craft for you — it requires a bit of simple sewing and cutting — you can still enlist your child as your assistant. She’ll be happy to help you by choosing colors and stuffing each one.

Christmas Cones

Ohdeedoh calls this the “easiest Christmas craft ever.” And we have to agree, it’s a super-simple project that, with any luck, could keep your kids busy for hours so you have time to wrap gifts, make a pie, and clean before Grandma and Grandpa arrive … well, maybe that’s dreaming! But, hand over a few lightweight paper cone cups and a pile of whatever craft supplies you have — yarn or fabric scraps, glitter, sequins, old buttons, markers, paint, etc. Then just wait to see what your kiddies come up with!
