Dear Nurit,

With the holidays parties right around the corner I’m trying to create a few kid-friendly crafts to occupy the little ones while the adults schmooze. What are some easy, clean holiday-themed crafts that my youngest guests will enjoy?

Keeping the children in your home busy and happy is key for a stress-free holiday gathering. Below are two simple craft ideas.

–          Christmas Paper Chains: Have the children make decorative paper chains that can be hung all over your home. http://www.alextoys.com/product/149XN

–          Pinecone Centerpieces: Place scented pinecones, oranges, tangerines, leaves, short branches, and potpourri on a table. Encourage the children to help arrange the items into small baskets for individual centerpieces that they can later take home.

–          Origami: Keep older children busy with the ALEX Toys Origami & Kirigami Kit http://www.alextoys.com/product/132735/142W/_/Origami_%26_Kirigami_Kit

Be sure to have safety scissors on hand if you plan a craft that involves cutting.
