A Fun Christmas Activity for kids-Christmas Bingo Games-Start a new Family Tradition

If you loved playing our Halloween Bingo game then you'll also love our Christmas Bingo game.  We've designed two different for the younger kids and one for the older kids.  It's the perfect activity for the snowy, rainy days during the month of December. Especially great for their Christmas vacation. Start a new Christmas family tradition--Christmas Bingo!

We designed this Christmas Bingo game for the older kids, whose who know all their numbers 1- 75.  It's a regulation bingo game with unique sheets (all 10 sheets are different)

Here's the number calling sheet.  Just cut each square apart and draw out of a bag to play the game.

We designed this Christmas Bingo game with pictures only. It's perfect for the kids who haven't learned or mastered their numbers. A calling sheet is included with all the pictures. Just cut the squares apart and draw them out of a bag to play the game.  You can also show the kids the picture to make it easier for them to play.  All 8 game sheets are unique, none are the same.

We love playing Bingo with candy for the playing pieces.  Our favorite candy to use are these chocolate kisses.  We've designed 63 ¾" round Christmas tags that you can use to play our Christmas bingo game.

We also have a fun way for you to give each child their playing pieces. Package as many candy pieces as think you'll need in a clear cellophane bag. Both round and square tags are included. Either one would work nicely.

24 Christmas Chocolate Candy Wraps & A Peek at my Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Plush Collection!

My favorite Christmas movie of all time was Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. I can't tell you how many times I've watched that movie and have loved it all these years.  So I wanted to design some candy wraps with a Rudolph theme. Hopefully the messages on each wrap will bring back some great childhood memories for you too.

Remember the song "Silver and Gold" that Sam the snowman sings in the movie? We thought it only appropriate to wrap the red candy wraps around the chocolates with the gold foil and the green candy wraps around the chocolates with the silver foil.   (Hershey Chocolate Nuggets) 

There are 12 Christmas messages on these 24 wraps of red (12) and green (12).  It's an Instant download and you can print as many as you need for your holiday parties. (only for personal use) 

A chocolate with a Christmas themed message on it is every more special that just a chocolate and people will think you're such a fabulous hostess to have gone to all that work (our little secret is that it isn't a lot of work)

While you're here take a look at my Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Plush Collection that I've had since 2000. They came from the CVS Pharmacy. I just wish there was a Mrs. Claus!

And last but not least is are the plushes from Frosty the Snowman.....They're pretty cute too.

A Cute Wood & Paper Pumpkin for your Thanksgiving Decorations-Super Simple to do!

I had so much fun putting together this Thanksgiving wood pumpkin.  Super simple, just takes a little planning on what papers to use. I plan on using it as a centerpiece for my Thanksgiving table. 

You can use any kind of leaf, even something from your yard and you could use real acorns too. The leaves are our design. We didn't have time to make them available in our Etsy shop but will offer them next October/November with lots of other fun ways to use them.

Glue the paper onto the wood and when dry use a piece of sand paper to distress the edges. You could then ink the edges if you like. We used regular old Elmer's glue to attach the paper to the wood. It worked great and dried fairly fast, especially if you don't put a lot of glue on each piece. 

We wrapped wire around the stem and then twisted some for the tendrils.  We picked up the wood kit at the  Wood Connection store in American Fork, UT  (the leaves and acorns are ours, the wire you can purchase there too)  They also carry scrapbook paper and the wire there too. 

We covered the front and the back with the same brown polkadot paper and then covered the sides of each piece and the top in a light brown paper. The stem was a textured yellow.  We glued all the leaves to the bottom of the stem and added the acorns using foam tabs to make them stand out from the leaves. Then tie a ribbon around all the wood pieces to hold them together.  Since the back and the front are covered you get a nice view no matter how you look at it.
