24 Days of Christmas Crafting Fun!

I'm always looking for preschool friendly crafts, especially around the holiday time.  This year my two each have a Christmas tree  in their rooms and I know making some ornaments for their trees will be right up their alley.  As we were unpacking decorations yesterday they both loved finding ornaments/crafts they had made last year.  I've found having a list of ideas and the supplies on hand make it much easier and a lot less stressful for mama! 

Now, thanks to Pinterest, ideas are SO easy to find.  This list is for super easy crafts that preschoolers can do almost, or pretty close to it, on their own.  These are ideas that truly for the 2-5 age range and from some of my favorite sites to follow. Hope you find a craft or two to do with your little ones!

First off, a special shout out to one of my favorite sites - Happy Hooligans ( you can like her on FB too).  She runs a in home daycare in Canada and her ideas are simply perfect for little ones:
