Simple Holiday Family Crafts to Make with On-Hand Material

Does your family have paper cups, Legos, plastic spoons or toilet-paper rolls lying around? Transform them into angels, snowmen and even a chimney for Santa!

If you can believe it, I noticed that many of the craft stores started marking down their holiday craft supplies last week. Last week! While we’re much closer to Christmas now and Hanukkah is about to begin, December isn’t over just yet, right? If your children are in the mood for some holiday-themed crafts but you can’t find enough supplies at the store, this week’s roundup is for you. Here are a few project ideas that recycle items at home you probably already have sitting around.
