Gnome Crafts for Kids
A little whimsy, a little nature, and a lot fun – that’s how I described gnomes to my daughter when she was about 3-years-old. Honestly, I think it’s accurate.
We’ve been making a lot of gnome crafts here on Ruffles and Rain Boots because it turns out, the little one loves them. Below are a few of our favorite gnome crafts for kids.
