Festive Ornament Fillers
Dreaming of trimming a colorful tree, but sick of those gorgeous vintage glass baubles falling and breaking? So are we. The kids will have a ball filling plastic ornaments (available at craft stores) with their favorite finds like ribbons. Try ribbons, strips of leftover wrapping paper, pom poms, tinsel, garland, or even tiny toys. There’s no glue involved, so this is the perfect craft to set up for the kids to complete while you’re taking care of other household chores. Try this idea for a holiday party, too—just set up a “crafting bar.” Set out one large plastic bowl that’s filled with the empty ornaments and other various plastic bowls with all the trimmings. Then let kids get to work.
