Christmas Crafts

I kept Christmas simple this year. The kids got some clothes and games and I made charitable donations in the names of most of the family. But, I couldn’t stop myself from making some fun stuff for my 2 and 4 year old nephew and niece.

They have a play kitchen they like and so I went a little crazy making felt food for it!

Gyoza and strawberries

toast, eggs & strawberries

Toast and egg (I love the plaid flanel crust!)

blt

A BLT — more flanel for the bacon.

spam musubi

Spam musubi. Green/black shot silk makes great nori!

Jammy pants

For my nephew I made jammy style pants to go with a cute shark tee from Target and my favorite Go Fish cards. The kids can’t read yet, but I think they’ll still have fun describing the fish and their parents can give the Hawaiian names a try!

Twirly skirt

For his big sister, an opihi tee (opihi are hawaiian limpets, or a term of endearment for clingy kids) with coordinating tiered skirt and hawaiian girl necklace.

T-shirt necklace

Finally, for my sister, a necklace made of sari yarn and t-shirt fabric. She sounded a bit dubious when she called on Christmas, but I know she can totally rock this with a T-shirt and jeans.
