Crafty Holiday Moments

As most of you know I'm a big fan of Black Friday. Every year I sit down and plan my attack. As the years have passed the stores have started to open earlier and earlier, to the point where Black Friday almost doesn't exist anymore. Getting up at 1 am to wait in line for the store to open at 3 am is perfectly fine. However, stores opening at 3 pm on Thanksgiving is unacceptable. This year I decided to take a pass on the entire thing and make some memories of a different kind. 

I tried to think of something that Little Miss and I could do to keep us both entertained. I didn't want to spend a fortune at a craft store so instead we made holiday decorations out of everyday household products. If there's one nugget of knowledge that's been passed down from my grandmother to my mother to me it's that you should always be stocked up on toilet paper. When it comes to stocking up for anything, Costco has you covered. 


I wanted to to make something that would be easy enough for her to do but could also be displayed for the entire holiday season. After searching around online and asking her what she wanted to do, we ended up making snowflake ornaments, a new topper for the tree, and Santa and reindeer, all from household products. 

All you need are toilet paper or paper towel rolls, construction paper, glue, wiggly eyes, and some poms. Any other crafting items are optional. Paint your rolls the appropriate colors for each item and then use your construction paper and other craft items to add the extras. These are all up to your imagination!




Of course any project involving glitter creates a mess. Especially when a three-year old is in charge of said glitter. Perhaps that was a bad judgment call on my part? Either way, I relied on my favorite P&G products to get everything cleaned up. I've been a Swiffer fan ever since they first came out and I use both the WetJet and the Sweeper at home. 



After finishing up with the crafts we cleaned up our glittery mess with the Swiffer Dusters and I sprayed some pine Febreze to set the atmosphere as we decorated the house for the holidays.

What Procter & Gamble products do you rely on to make it through the holidays? Are you all set?
