Dreidel-Shaped Pouch: This simple dreidel-shaped pouch is built to hold gelt, a gift card, or other small holiday treasures.

Place Mat Collage: Five items and five steps will help you create festive place mats that can be used daily or to decorate the kids’ table during your holiday meal.

Mitten Sachet: Did your mitten lose its mate? With some felt and a few other materials, you can turn your lone mitten into a small perfumed bag.

Origami Wreath: Craft little boxes using origami to create a wreath, then decorate it with glitter, paint, and origami bows.

Snowman printable: Download and print this snowman template, then cut out the shapes so your kids can create their very own snowman without the snow! You can hang the finished product on the fridge or make many and use them as holiday gift tags.
