These are very easily made and make cute ornaments or decorations. We made footprints using white paint, then allowed them to dry. We then used colored markers to create a nose, eyes, mouth, buttons, a hat, and arms.
This is a very cute way to mark the size of a child's hand. We made brown hand prints, then allowed them to dry. Once dry, we glued on wiggly eyes and a red pompom.
Supplies needed; print out of template (below), scissors, glue or tape, construction paper, markers (if desired), and a photo of your child(ren)'s face.

Here is a quick and easy sensory toy for kids. All you need is a couple of pipe cleaners and some bells.
We threaded 2 pipe cleaners through a jingle bell, folded them (with the bell at the center) and twisted the ends. Then we folded it in half again, and twisted them again. they are fairly sturdy, and a lot of fun for the kids to play with.
**For more noise, consider adding multiple bells.
Children love to make gifts!
Here is an easy gift idea for children to make for a special girl in their life (mom, grandma, sister, caretaker, therapist, bus driver, etc.).
Fold down a small portion of top of bag. Cut out a hat, nose, buttons, and mouth (my little helper did not want her snowman to have a mouth) from construction paper and glue on to paper bag to create a snowman (younger children may need pieces pre-cut out). Add googly eyes for eyes. Perfect bag to send home a special gift for parents!
