Hey guys! Christmas is right around the corner once again and I’m in all my Christmas glee. It truly is the best time of the year, right? I love it all; the pretty decorations, the Hallmark Christmas movies, the Christmas carols and of course, the reason for the season, the birth of Christ!

My kids especially love to do those! If you’re looking for fun activities to do this holidays, here’s a list of amazing christmas crafts for kids.
