As Christmas get closer, parents get busier and kids get crankier as they eagerly anticipate the fun times…
So that’s why projects need to be more hands-off.
When looking for “busy time crafts” I love those that have a good proportion of independent activity vs. parent involvement. Depending on the age of the child making these paper ornaments for kids, you may need to help a little. Grade schoolers should be able to complete it on their own.
I love coloring crafts for this very reason: kids can get creative and play an active role in designing the outcome. You can keep things simple by pulling out the crayons, or get creative with glitter glue (note: I did NOT say glitter…), craft gems, stickers… the possibilities are endless!
