Making Homemade Christmas Cards with Kids


Making Homemade Christmas Cards with KidsThe Christmas holidays are the most joyous time of the year for families. Especially important is the time families spend together decorating, wrapping, and baking. So let’s explore how you can spend family time making homemade Christmas Cards with your kids.

Here are some items you will need. Buy a Santa coloring book and a package of colored construction paper. Cut the construction paper to the size of the cards your family wishes to make. Get out the crayons, magic markers of all colors, cotton balls, pipe cleaners, ribbons, glue or glue stick, sparkles, red, black and green fabrics, and small candy canes. Your family is ready to begin making unique Christmas cards.


Christmas Tree Cards
Make Christmas tree cards by drawing several trees on green construction paper. Cut the trees out. Glue fabric and candy to the cards for a beautiful visual effect.


Santa In A Chimney Cards
Draw a house with Santa climbing down the chimney. The card can be decorated with cotton balls for Santa’s hat and beard with a line of trees cut from construction paper for the front of the house. Use colored markers to add ornaments to the branches of the trees. Sprinkle glitter on the ornaments, as well as the tree, to resemble snow.


Santa Cards
A picture of a full-sized Santa could be cut out of a coloring book, and pasted to the front of a card. After it is colored in with crayons, add fabric to enhance the picture. Make a green sack out of material and place it over Santa’s shoulder; use black material to glue onto Santa’s boots; use the red material to glue onto Santa’s hat. You can adorn the card with small candy canes.


Reindeer Cards
Draw a reindeer and sleigh card. Instead of drawing antlers, take some brown pipe cleaners, arrange the brown pipe cleaners into antlers and glue the pipe cleaners to the top of the reindeer’s head. If the coloring book has a picture of the sleigh, cut the sleigh out of the book; color the sleigh using crayons; and paste the sleigh in front of the reindeer.

Once the fronts of the cards are decorated, your family can write a personal Christmas message inside the card, with everyone signing their names using colored crayons or markers. Or, to really make the card special, insert a family photograph and sign all your names.

Making personalized Christmas cards is probably one of the most popular craft ideas for the entire family. While the kids are on Christmas vacation, take a day to sit around your kitchen or dining room table and create memorable homemade Christmas cards.

Title: How to Make Homemade Bread

This is a very simple recipe for bread. I learned this recipe about a year ago, and I completely stopped buying bread since then. It's ridiculously easy to make, and the texture, taste, and smell is amazing.
BREAD
3 cups flour
1 tsp salt
3/4 tsp yeast*
1 1/2 cups water
---------------------
*yeast: I used bread machine yeast in this video. If you use fresh yeast, use 7 grams, or about a teaspoon, and dissolve it in the water before you add the water to the flour. If you use regular yeast, dissolve it first, too. It helps if the water is lukewarm.
-------------------
Mix together the dry ingredients. Add water, slosh around. Mix into a fairly uniform ball. Cover and let rise for 3-5 hours. (if you want, you can put it in a WARMED oven - BUT TURN THE OVEN OFF - with pots of boiling water in the oven. This way, the yeast has the perfect environment to grow.) Once risen, turn out on to a floured surface. Roll into ball shape. Preheat a heat resistant pot with a cover at 450. Put the bread dough in the hot pot. Put it in the oven at 450 for 30 mins, then remove the cover. Finally, bake for 20 more minutes in the 450 oven. Cool on cooling rack. Enjoy hot with butter and jam.

Variations:
roll in cracked wheat, flax seeds, poppy, sesame seeds. Add in with the dry ingredients: herbs, olives, nuts, raisins, dried tomatoes, cheese. Substitute 1/4 cup of water with molasses. Double the recipe, half the recipe. Listen to Rush instead of King Crimson while making the bread.
