It’s the day after Thanksgiving. Pack up those harvest-colored craft supplies and break out the gold and silver glitters – it’s the holiday season! Today I’m sharing a few of my favorite kid-approved paper crafting kits that you can pick up around metro Detroit while shopping. Because, after all, there’s no time to waste when it comes to holiday crafting!
My friends and family know how much of a fan I am of Paper Source‘s products, from their kid-friendly workshops to their clever crafting kits. This year they’ve got another great lineup of holiday craft products that your family is sure to enjoy. Depending on the holidays you celebrate in your home, Paper Source has a kit for you. There’s DIY dreidel garland for Hanukkah or Santa, and his helpers, garland. But what I appreciate most are the kits that everyone can have fun with, no matter what you celebrate.
I’ve been having fun playing around with a few of Paper Source’s newer and well-known kits recently.
I love that the kits come pre-scored so that little hands can simply pop out the pieces and get to work! Take a look at few kits you won’t want to pass up this holiday season.
Nutcracker Suite Set
What a fun set to play with! This set allows your child (or you!) to create five characters from the classic holiday ballet, The Nutcracker.
Assembling the dolls couldn’t be easier. The body pieces and accessories pop out and pin together with small brads. The only extra supplies you’ll need to arm your child with is a glue stick and a pair of scissors.
The characters come complete with costume extras and many different types of paper to experiment with, ranging from metallic card stock to glittery, soft paper circles.
Extra fun? The Nutcracker is really two dolls in one!
Here’s a funny thing to say – llamas are SO in this year! Paper Source has a whole collection of llama craft supplies! In this kit you can make 10 larger llamas that work great as a strand of garland or even on top of a gift.
It’s all about the fun, silly details with this kit. Tiny pompoms are used to adorn the llamas as are cheery polka dot papers. And would you look at that face?!
Holiday Puppies and Kittens Gift Tag Kit
Looking to make some clever cards to exchange with friends or classmates? This kit is perfect for that! Create your own one-of-a-kind kitten or puppy and add a special message. This card is good to go!
