My son of course piped up and said he wanted to make Christmas gifts too!
Luckily, I had filed away on one of my Pinterest boards this great idea from... One Good Thing By Jillee... using recycled cereal boxes and cutting out nifty pencil cases...
You'll find more recycled cereal box crafts... (and download instructions/templates)... HERE...
* a cereal box
*Velcro fasteners (I used sticky back dots)
They are going to have so much fun giving these to their friends...
I'm glad I took the time to do a craft together... It seems to often we are caught up in our individual activities. As my kids get older I feel like time is running out! I want to make as many memories as possible... and hoard them away for later when hanging out with Mom is no longer cool... and maybe someday they'll think back on their childhood say fondly "Remember when..."
