  36. the holidays are a great opportunity for crafting, i have to confess though that we have done zero decor crafting yet this year! the kids enjoy projects but tend to be chaotic when working. i am mostly sticking with crayons as they both seem to do a lot of collateral damage while creating. yesterday they drew on large paper while i recycled a cereal box into an organizer.
