Welcome to Down Home, San Luis Obispo Classical Academy’s blog! We are a classical school offering several options to make our education work for families with infants through high schoolers. Our signature hybrid program, which is part-time classroom and part-time home instruction, provides an engaging education for preschool through middle school (with full time options available). We also have a university model high school. This blog is meant to support and encourage on the home front because, in so many ways, the heart of what happens at SLO Classical Academy happens down home.

Holiday Crafts to Make with Kids

Who’s up for some holiday crafting with the kiddos? We usually like to make a little something during the break for Christmas decorations or gifts. Here are just a few ideas that you could easily make with kids. Feel free to share your own holiday craft suggestions in the comments below!

Clockwise, from top left:

1. These Button Ornaments from Martha Stewart make darling gifts, or keep them for yourself! A great way for kids to use their fine motor skills and their imaginations.

2. Here’s a Tree Shaped Christmas Ornament Display from The Sweet Survival that would be a fun piece of holiday decor to make with older kids. You could hang this with or without the frame.

3. Yarn and buttons can go a long way… check out these bright and colorful Yarn and Button Topiaries from HGTV. They would look sweet on a mantle or as a centerpiece, or kids would probably enjoy making a small forest of these.

4. More yarn! This Pom Pom Garland from Mama Says Sew makes a quick and easy festive decoration for just about anywhere in your home. You can make your own pom poms out of yarn (this link is also a fun project idea), or if all else fails you can always buy pom poms in holiday colors. 

5. Here’s one the boys might get into – Craft Stick and Washi Tape Sleds from Craft, Interrupted. Kids and grownups can both have fun creating these as ornaments, decorations, or just to play with.
