The holidays are the perfect chance to enjoy great food, cozy moments by the fire, and as much time as we can with our family and loved ones. But while watching movies, baking cookies, and taking a walk in the snow are lovely ways to spend a few hours they might not be enough to keep you entertained for long.
The answer? Crafting!
DIYing is a fun way to spend time together all while staying out of the cold. It’s affordable, easy, and a great hands-on activity that can help you relax and reduce stress. Plus, if you have little ones in the family it’s a bonding experience they’ll carry with them forever.
While there are countless types of crafts to choose from we are partial to beaded ornaments, especially when it revolves around holiday crafting.
Choosing a pre-made kit takes all the stress out of crafting.
Here are 5 ornament kits available at Solid Oak Inc all for less than $11.
