The Crafty Kids Bundle will delight little ones to teens over the winter break and it’s only available now. Get yours and keep the “Mom, I’m bored!” whines away!
The Stress of a Holiday Break
Winter break is a stressful time for parents, isn’t it? The “Mom, I’m bored” yells from across the house, the “Can I play on the iPad?” requests every 20-minutes… It can be a lot to handle day after day until Christmas.
We are parents, so we know the challenge the holiday break brings to us, but what about the stress it has on kids?
Kids being bored is a good thing – we are doing something right if our kids are bored some of the time. But not all boredom-busting activities are created equal. Arts and crafts projects are some of the best boredom busters because:
- coloring is an activity which helps kids build focus and fine-motor skills.
- 3D assembling and construction concepts challenge young kids to think dimensionally.
- patience is required when crafting with glue.
- when they complete an art project or coloring page, a child’s self-esteem gets a boost.
- self-expression is explored (and reinforced) when crafting with other kids.
The Crafty Kids Bundle is here to help with ALL of that and more!

The Crafty Kids Bundle
This bundle is packed with books, crafts, coloring pages, and activities! Below are a few we’ve done so far. Sorry about the picture quality – I didn’t set my light equipment up, so these are shot with “the light of the dark Seattle winter.” ;)
Ornaments: We love homemade ornaments (like our spice ornaments)! My daughter immediately chose this book first and made three adorable wreaths. It was just enough of a fine-motor activity and time commitment for her to have a great time crafting. We made 3 from the book and they were all easy and doable by kids themselves.
Seek and Find: This was really fun and the doodles are just too cute. It might be too difficult (finding and coloring) for those under 4.
Paper Plate Snowglobe Craft: We didn’t have any plastic plates on hand but we use pie covers in our easy kid’s snowglobe craft, so if you have any you can use those. There are alternates for the snow also (we broke apart a Styrofoam piece from a shipping box).
Cards: Our contribution of the gift tags (which my daughter already colored) and the color and cut cards are fun for most ages because the shapes are easy to color and cut out.
Paper Reindeer Craft: This is ah-may-zing but I thought it was too difficult for my daughter (just turned 6) to do on her own. She will definitely need help with it, so plan accordingly.
Coloring Pages: Some of the cutest coloring pages are included and they don’t stop with just Christmas. There is a New Year’s coloring set for the kids, too, and a gift box they can color and assemble (young ones will need help).
The Crafty Adults Aren’t Left Out!
Wait, what? Does the crafty KIDS bundle include stuff for adults? Yep. It’s awesome because I’ve been coloring and crafting right alongside my daughter.
I printed out the Sky Goodies ornament (it’s gorgeous) while my daughter made the wreaths. It’s so detailed and it was really nice to just sit and color.
There are a few more treats tucked in there for adults (even us coffee lovers are covered), so if you’re crafty WITH a crafty kid, surprise – this bundle is for you.
