I love kids' crafts and every month I have a group over at my house putting together something fun. Since this group ranges in ages from about four to thirteen, I try to have a fairly simple craft that the younger ones can make and the older kids can adapt. They always amaze me with their creativity and they take a little inspiration and run with it!
This craft is a simple one. I am always looking for a way to use the beautiful cards that we get for Christmas, and this is another way to recycle your cards.
This craft uses the front of a card cut in a simple stocking shape. You can draw your own keeping it about the size of a card or you can use a cookie cutter. Cut a back for the stocking using another card, cardstock or construction paper. Glue them together, punch a hole for hanging and add some yarn or thread to the hole. They are super quick and very easy.
Here are a few that I made (they are addictive!). You can fill them with a few candies, a gift card or small gifts. Of course, this craft is great for crafters of all ages!
