We are doing so many things to get ready for the holidays. Being an active mom of three, I like to think that our family does a lot of fun activities. We also use and partner with brands that align to our needs and ideals as parents. We are happy to partner with Seventh Generation® as a brand ambassador. As always all opinions are our own.
As we get closer to Christmas and my kids stay home from school this week I really wanted to create some fun activities that they could do. We could upcycle some of our old broken decor to create something fun and new.
First we started by cleaning some old jars from products we have finished. The key to getting the labels off the jars is to soak the jar in hot water and then scrub with soap. Both labels on the jars we were going to use came right off with this method.
In our kitchen I use Seventh Generation products throughout our home and their Dish Liquid is a powerful formula that cuts through grease and stuck-on foods yet is gentle and safe when little hands pitch in to help.
I discovered a few broken pieces in my Christmas decor this year but really didn’t think they should be thrown away. So we combined a broken reindeer with a broken tree and with a little hot glue it looks absolutely perfect.
Since I really want to teach our girls to be kind to the plant and especially with this giving season give gifts that truly matter. This craft is just another way I get to show them they can be kind to the planet and we can make some great looking holiday decor along with memories!
I did the gluing and we used items we already had in our home. to create these.
Make Your Own Snow Globe –
- distilled water
- hot glue & hot glue gun
- Small Christmas decor
First add in the glitter, don’t put in too much! Then add in 10 drops of glycerin and fill with distilled water. Tighten the lid of the jar and flip over. Make sure to ill it as much as you can with water but leave a small space for water at the top. It’s so simple ad fun to create with your kids. Our girls enjoyed creating this fun craft and I think it’s a fun way to help break up the business of the season.
