We are planning our annual company Christmas event. This event is for company employees with their families that will include children. The children's ages range from 2 to 3 years and teenagers as well. We are in need 1 or two crafts that they can be involved in for about two hours of their time. Somthing that will not be too complicated or messy because of the location and other circumstances involved with the event.
We have a budget to follow and the cost needs to be minimal and yet fun stuff. The event will take place on December 10. The number of kids is not yet known. Would appreciate some help with suggestions. Thank you in advance for your help.
How about making candy canes out of tri-beads and pipe cleaners. Alternate red or green beads with white or clear. Then shape into a cane. Add a string as a hanger. Pretty simple and inexpensive too!
Cute reindeer candy canes are easy. Use a candy cane, fold a pipe cleaner in half and wrap it around the hook of the candy cane, then twist or bend it to resmble antlers.
Hello Frugal Friends,
My daughter is looking for quick and easy Christmas crafts for her and her daughter to do to share with her first grade class. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

There's always the old Rudolph candy canes- just twist brown pipe cleaners (cut in half) around the curve of the cane for antlers, glue on googly eyes and a small red pom pom nose (can get at crafts store or use a cinnamon candy decor). Can jazz these up with ribbon/pipe cleaner "scarves" too.
Or- cut two large mittens out of construction paper.
Have glitter, scraps, markers etc. to decorate. Make sure child's name is on them. Punch holes and string them together with about 10" of yarn- cute tree decoration. Can make for every family member and pets too.
