Super Simple Christmas Craft - Cardboard Christmas Cookies



I've mentioned our love of decorating cardboard Christmas cookies before.  It's such a classic, no muss, no fuss, low maintenance type craft though, I thought it might be worth a second mention.

A couple of minutes of tracing, and cutting cookie cutter shapes from thin cardboard - the backs of cereal boxes, or the card stock from the backs of paper reams - a box of crayons, and maybe some Christmas music to set the mood, and you've got the makings for an entire afternoon of Christmas crafting...


 ...and pretend play...


...with very little clean-up required.

It's great to be a homeschooler.

Nice! We might try it out here too, especially once the crazy business with a theater production is over.

Love this idea! We might have to invite some friends over to do this!

Recycled crafts are a great way to save money and resources!
