Creative Holiday Crafts for Kids

Recycle cardboard oatmeal canisters by giving them a Christmas makeover. First, we glue white paper around the containers.

We fill them with homemade holiday goodies and give them to neighbors, friends, and teachers.


recover oatmeal canisters for storage or this one is for a child to store leaves and rocks on nature walks! :)
