Scrapbook Idea: Pages with Holiday Spirit

Christmastime is a time that’s perfect for scrapbooking and if you’re thinking of making a holiday scrapbook or Christmas scrapbook for your family to enjoy for many years to come, we have a few ideas that can help you make your pages top. Use these tips to really capture the holiday spirit in your Christmas scrapbook:

  • Instead of colored paper or backgrounds, try using wrapping paper from the presents to decorate your pages. It’s just so much more meaningful!
  • Speaking of wrapping paper, try making a “patchwork quilt” of paper by cutting out pieces and putting them together in a fun design for the cover. Once laminated, you’ll have a work of art that’s sure to celebrate the season.
  • Take plenty of pictures of the holiday chaos. Everything from bed head and pajamas down to Christmas smiles needs to be captured.
  • If you made homemade ornaments with your children this year, try including one (or at least a photo of one) on your scrapbook pages. It’ll keep the tradition alive!

What other ideas do you have for making the most of your holiday scrapbook?

Kid-Friendly Holiday Project: Magic Reindeer Food!

two little cooks

The holiday season is upon us and if you’re ready to start celebrating with your family, why not do a fun craft project? We love making crafts with our children and to help you get in the holiday spirit, we think you’ll love this recipe/craft idea for Magic Reindeer Food! As a family favorite, this stocking stuffer is sure to delight everyone in your family, not to mention, spread some holiday cheer!

Here’s what you’ll need:
Paper or index cards
Craft scissors
Ribbon
Plastic baggies (or small clear food packages)
Ribbon
Hole Punch
1/2 cup uncooked oatmeal
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup red or green sugar crystals (as used for cake decorating)

In a plastic bag, combine together the oatmeal, sugar, and sugar crystals. Shake well and seal the bag using ribbon or the zip lock. Then, tie ribbon around the top of the bag so that it forms a pouch. Then, take the paper or index card, cut around it with craft scissors to make a playful border, and write the following message on it using the markers. Feel free to decorate the index card with a holiday theme :)

Be sure to take this magic food and sprinkle on the lawn,
On Christmas, Santa’s reindeer travel miles before the dawn.
The smell of oats and glitter path will guide them on their way
And you’ll wake up to Santa’s gifts next morn on Christmas Day!

Once that’s done, punch a hole in the corner of the index card or paper and use ribbon to tie it to the top of the pouch. This makes the label for the magic reindeer food! That’s it – you’re done!
