Santa's Workshop

Here are our kitchen craft cubbies. They usually sit against the wall and hold stuff.

Here is the kids' craft table. Usually covered with games or coloring papers.
But...at Christmastime, I fill the cubbies up with all sorts of crafting goodies.
Except for glitter...of course. Because it ruins my Christmas spirit.
Cheap toys, paints, kits from the dollar store.
Lots of envelopes, glue, tape (my kids are ADDICTED to tape).


And then, I move the cubbies and make a "secret corner."
And, voila! Santa's Workshop! The perfect place for little elves to get busy.
(Somehow, "Ooooh, go make a surprise in Santa's Workshop!" sounds a lot better than,
"Can't you just get out of here and leave me alone?!!")


p.s. My kids wrap all their presents in aluminum foil. Less frustrating. And no tape necessary.
Unless, of course, you are addicted to tape.

Genius! Don't forget to throw in some macaroni, fruit loops and yarn (those are the things my kids are addicted to!!)

Brilliant. I can tell you were a teacher.

I want a gift wrapped in foil.

You are a GENIUS!! My kids are addicted to tape too. They call it 'sticky tape' cuz that is what Dora calls it. :)

My girls would spend hours at a table set up like that!

You are genius, my friend, genius. Can I send three elves your way? I'm tired of them crafting in my space here. We need a secret craft room.

Seriously, seriously, genius! I love those kitchen craft cubbies.

They look so cute. You can see the concentration and effort going into their creations.

You never cease to amaze me. Seriously. I wish I could turn back the hands of time and create a little workshop for my little elves. Such a great idea!!

Uh, can you say "Superstar Mom"? My Emma would think she had died and gone to heaven if I ever encouraged crafting.

So fun!

I am too scared to try this. Something about a 3 year old and 1 year old lurking around paint and markers makes me nervous.
