“Spending time together as a family is what the holidays are all about and holiday crafts are a great way to bring everyone together,” says crafting expert Sandy Sandler, creator of Bowdabra. Crafting with your children can be a healthy and therapeutic activity with proven emotional and physical wellness benefits. “Crafting stimulates the brain and helps with the development of fine and gross motor skills,” Sandler explains, “It also provides a sense of accomplishment and relaxation.” Making Christmas ornaments is a wonderful family activity.

The kids will need a place to write down all their Christmas crafting adventures. Sandler shows you how to create this adorable snowman notepad with cardstock and foamie paper. These little notepads make fun gifts for stocking stuffers or for a Christmas day activity. We also love these 100 stocking stuffers under $10.
