Card holder for kids and adults :)
I did something similar to this and have them for sale for the holidays! They were great for table decorations and can be used as a game at Turkey Day Dinner or just a craft to do with the kids to have on display as a decoration! I made the feathers out of paper of the same colors but wrote what I was thankful for on each feather.
Pinecone Turkey Craft
Borax snowflakes. Another pinner says: If you have Borax at home, you SO need to do this with the kids. Do it after dinner, and by breakfast the kids will be amazed at what has happened! We have 8 snowflakes hanging in our window just a-sparkling away!
Yet another thing I'm pretty sure I already pinned.... Bubble "Refill" Station - This mommy rinsed out the laundry detergent container several times, removed the labels, used a Sharpie to decorate it, and filled the container with bubble soap. Now kids can have easy OUTside access to fill up their own bubble shooters/toys.
Moon sand. Just 8 cups of flour and 1 cup of baby oil, really soft and easy to clean up. This summer on our patio!

Long Distance Hug. This would be great for my sister who lives over seas.
Toddler sewing, non slip drawer lining (big holes), plastic needle and yarn. This is an excellent way to teach the craft of sewing and embroidery to young children. It would be easy to sew a Christmas tree using the grid lines on the material. You could draw a pattern for them to follow or let them draw their own! EVIE!! Lets get her hooked now :)
Great kids sewing idea. Non-slip drawer liner in tapestry frame with wool and plastic needle.
Fairies in a jar: Cut the end off of a glowstick. (This should be done by an adult – there’s a glass vial inside which, when shattered, creates the chemical glow reaction.) Dump the contents of the glowstick into a jar and add 4 T. glitter. Put the lid on the jar and secure the lid with duct tape (so curious kids won’t open it). Shake. Fairies in a jar.
