Christmas has a special place in my heart. And I love kids’ crafts. So obviously, Christmas Crafts are a no brainer for me. Keeping my kids happy while waiting is just a bonus. In this post, I’m going to share the craft package I put together for our Christmas trip. When I return, I’ll do another post about how successful the crafts were. I have been doing these craft packages for a while and I sometimes do a share with other moms. I usually try to focus on a holiday or season, or just Disney. The crafts are such a hit, when/if I ever get my shop off the ground, I’ll certainly include them as an item for sale. Someday.
First Christmas Trip, Yea!
I don’t think I could be more excited to take my oldest on a Mommy and Me (plus the baby) trip during Christmastime. Seth (7) has never been on a Christmas trip. He has never done Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party either. AND he doesn’t know that we’re doing the party! I can’t wait to surprise him. He also doesn’t know that I got the Table Service Dining Plan and we are doing the Candlelight Processional in Epcot, Minnie‘s Holiday Diner AND Cinderella’s Royal Table. He absolutely loves CRT. We have been blessed enough to do it on two other occasions and it’s always been a real treat.
Baby Makes Three
So this time it’s just me, Seth and Cy-guy (3 months). Seth and I would be running from thrill ride to thrill ride if we were all by ourselves. The baby changes everything, because he can’t ride everything. Seth is “old enough” to ride by himself. Disney says you have to be 7 to do that, but Mommy is not so sure. I am familiar enough with some of the lines and processes to feel comfortable with him going alone, but others I’m not so sure. We’ll see. Knowing that some of our favorite rides might not be possible this trip, I’m focusing on other fun things- Penny Pressing, Shows, Pin Trading and Dining among them. I also have a lot of fun toys and games to keep Seth in the Disney spirit. That’s where the Christmas Crafts come in!
Christmas Crafts 2016
Below are photos of the crafts that are in Seth’s Christmas Craft packet. I know enough to chose things that won’t be too hard, because I may not be able to help him. The crafts can’t be too messy or too bulky. No glue, no glitter. You might think beads are a bad idea too, but they actually work great as long as the beads stay in the bag and the child picks one at a time out. I also don’t like things that need scissors. I LOVE pre-cut adhesives.
Getting these Christmas Crafts together took time and energy, but I know that these little things are what makes Disney World completely magical for my kids. They don’t even notice the lines when they are so interested in the toys/games or crafts that I bring for them. I’ll let you know what’s a hit or a miss this year!
