Christmas craft with babies and young children! Get some brown paint, paint it all over their piggy toes and let them make some prints on paper, take a black marker, draw in antlers, get some googly eyes and red paint or red pom-poms for the nose! Then, cut it out in a circle, punch a hole in the top, put some string through it and voila! You have a keepsake ornament for life :). by christy

Idea adapted to a classroom: "every time a student catches someone doing something kind, they put the kind person's name on a piece of paper ALONG WITH the act of kindness. Then they SIGN the paper with their name and put it the jar. Once a week, the teacher draws a name from the jar and both kids get a treat" by elma

You and your child can make this super cool creation together using LEGO DUPLO bricks, a piece of paper and a cell phone flashlight. Help your child to build a theatre and a stage from LEGO DUPLO bricks. Slip a piece of paper in place to create your shadow screen and hold it in place with bricks. Create a small stand for the cell phone, then turn on the flashlight to create the impressive shadow effect. Once the audience have taken their seats, it’s time for your little one to put on a show! by jeanie

Brownie in a Cup ~ Wipe the outside of the cup with rubbing alcohol. Use an oil based Sharpie paint marker, then write the instructions onto the cup. Let the Sharpie dry completely for 24 hours. Place your cup in a cold oven, then bake at 450 degrees for 30 minutes. Crack your oven door and let the cup cool down with the oven to prevent cracking. This would be great as a gift, add the dry ingredients and wrap. by Kathy Schrock

Then copy the same thing on each section....will be easy as grease proof paper is a bit transparent. by georgette

Painting in a bag (my little one was about 9 months old here). This was a craft that we made for my mom. I put white paint on blue paper and stuck it all into a gallon sized storage bag. She just squished the paint around. I also like to put white paper in with blobs of different colored paints. . . she can see how they mix together to make other colors.
