20 Days of Christmas Crafts with Kids

This year, I decided that for the 20 days leading up to Christmas we would do something really fun every day. I love the holiday season and I love that it brings families together. I think that by doing stuff for our kids and more importantly with our kids, it allows us the opportunity to interact more, to talk about what this holiday truly means, and to appreciate the time that we have together.

For all these crafts that I have gathered below all you will need is hopefully stuff you already have at home. Some things you may need to pick up, but a quick trip to hobby lobby {or even Wal-mart} will have all of the goods.

I printed the details below and used it as my guide. I also have a picture of each craft that the "Elf" will deliver for us to do every day and he will have a bucket that he will have with all the supplies that she will need for the day!
