Santa + Reindeer Gift Tag – Kids Crafts

Santa and Reindeer Gift Tags Kids Crafts

My kids love to do whatever they can to help with the holidays. They love to decorate the tree, make cookies, and any other holiday craft we can find or come up with. I thought it would be fun for them to make some gift tags to put on presents for their teachers and our family.

I love that my kids had fun putting these together and how cute they look on the Christmas gifts! The best part, they don’t have to be perfect and they still look pretty cute.

Here’s what you’ll need:

If you don’t have a Cricut, I also have a printable file that you can print onto your cardstock and cut out the pieces.

For the Reindeer Gift Tag:

Glue your antlers onto the brown gift tag, making sure some of the antlers are coming off the tag like pictured above.

Reindeer Gift Tag

Add your googly eyes with modge podge or hot glue (which ever sticks better onto the paper. I had success with both, but sometimes the modge podge wasn’t sticking).

Santa Letter Printable

Printable-Dear-Santa-Letter

I’ve been wanting to make a Santa Letter Printable for a while, and my kids were so excited when I was finally done. They’ve been anxiously waiting to write Santa a letter and send it in the mail.

When I was helping my 3 year write his letter, I asked if he had been naughty or nice this year, and his first response was “Naughty.” It made me laugh, and he recognized that he definitely had some rough patches this year, but it was perfect to go over the things he was trying to improve on this year.

These letters are the perfect way to get your kids excited about Christmas and let Santa know what they’re wishing for this year. It’s super easy to put together and you don’t need an envelope since it’s a tri-fold letter!

Santa Letter

First you’ll need to print out the letter on both sides and trim it down.

Santa Letter Printable

Fold the letter twice so that the opening of the letter looks like the picture above.

Dear Santa Letter Printable

And the “to” and “from” side look like this.

Place a stamp on your card and they’re ready to send it off to Santa!

Hot Chocolate Bar + Printables

Hot-Chocolate-Bar+Printables

With the cooler weather upon us and family in town the week of Thanksgiving, I thought it would be fun to create a Hot Chocolate Bar during their visit. My kids and I love hot chocolate, so this was the perfect opportunity! My kids loved adding in their favorite mixes and toppings and having something to warm us up during the cooler week.

Hot Chocolate Bar

To go along with Hot Chocolate Bar, I also created these Hot Chocolate Bar printables to make it a little more festive.

I love how easy it is to put this all together, and you can use as many toppings and mix-ins as you like. I’ve included some of the basics on the printables!

Printable Hot Chocolate Bar

Using disposable cups with lids was perfect for everyone, especially the kiddos. I didn’t have to worry about them breaking a mug and you can make them look cuter with these coffee sleeve printables.

Uncommon Goods Christmas Gift Ideas + Holiday Shopping List Printable

I know it’s a little crazy to be thinking about Christmas when we haven’t even had Halloween yet, but my husband and I have been talking about what we’re going to get everybody for Christmas. I’m pretty sure my mother in law does her Christmas shopping as soon as school starts, something that I wish I could be better about! We’ve been busy working on our budget for Christmas this year and have been putting money aside at the end of the summer so that we aren’t left stranded this holiday!

Taking my 1 year old into the store has been challenging lately so I’ve resorted to shopping online as much as possible. While trying to figure out what we want to get everybody for Christmas, I came across a site called Uncommon Goods. They have Christmas gifts for everybody and all of their products are cruelty free. None of their products contain leather, feathers or fur and have also featured products that contain recycled components. Another great thing about Uncommon Goods is they have a passion for giving back and created the Better Give Back Program. When you make a purchase through their website, Uncommon Goods donates $1 to a non-profit organization that you choose at checkout.

I don’t know about you, but I have a hard time finding gifts for my family, especially the men. My kids are generally pretty easy, and are helpful in letting us know what they want for Christmas. If you’re struggling with some ideas, I’ve found some great Christmas Gifts for Men and Women you have to check out:

To help put some ease into your Holiday planning, I’ve created this Holiday Shopping List printable to help keep you organized. Whether you’re trying to stick to a budget or need to remember what you’re planning on getting a friend or family member for the holidays, this is the perfect printable for you! There’s also a spot at the end of the sheet so that you can mark off that you’ve bought the gift and if it has been wrapped. I hope these gift ideas and shopping list helps you throughout the busy holiday season!

Night Before Christmas Gift Tags

I’m know we’re not the only ones, but it has always been a tradition in my home for each kid to open up one gift on Christmas Eve, our choice. It was so fun, and made it that much more exciting to see what was left under our tree the next morning. My husband’s family also got to open one gift before Christmas, but they were always pajamas. When I joined their family, I loved the idea that you would be getting a new set of pajamas each year (or every other year – that’s how we’ve worked out Thanksgiving and Christmas with our families).

While still carrying on my families tradition of opening one gift on Christmas Eve, I’ve converted to my husbands family tradition with making it a new set of pajamas each year for my kids. In order to figure out which gift our kids get to open the night before Christmas, I’ve made these gift tags to make it easier to find. You will no longer need to make extra notes on your gift tags reminding you to “OPEN ME ON CHRISTMAS EVE,” buy an extra roll of wrapping paper to determine which ones are the “night before Christmas” gifts (unless you enjoy doing that which isn’t a bad idea) or set them aside in another room until it’s time open.

I’d love to see how you decorate your gifts using these gift tags on Instagram or Facebook! I hope you all have a Merry Christmas!

Christmas Card Tags

christmascard-tag-printable

Let’s be honest, Christmas Cards can get pretty pricey and sometimes it cuts into our Christmas shopping budget. It definitely cuts into ours. Our middle child’s birthday is 3 days after Christmas, mine is 2 weeks after Christmas, and the oldest is at the end of January… see what I mean? I can’t afford to spend too much money on Christmas cards, but I don’t want to sacrifice the look of my cards either. Luckily, this little project will turn your favorite family photo into a cute and festive Christmas card, and it’ll save you some money. Intrigued? I’ll tell you how.

Here are the things you’re going to need:

12 Days Christmas Card

I know Christmas was 2 weeks ago, but with all the hustle and bustle during last month I haven’t had a chance to share a project I worked on for my cousin. She came up with a fun way to share their year with a “12 Days of Christmas” card. I had so much fun creating this for her and loved the way it turned out! I’m thrilled she asked me to do this for her and her husband and was even more excited about it when I got it in the mail. Thanks Devon!
