Crafting books for kids are great in theory, but all too often we open one up, can't decide where to start and quickly shelf it. With Every Day's A Holiday, the book is organized month by month with 50 crafts that celebrate holidays. You'll find all of the heavy hitters here like Christmas, Valentine's Day and the Fourth of July, but we were especially enamored with the crafts celebrating minor holidays like National Bird Day, Read A Book Day and World Origami Day. Since we received our copy of this book in December, it was only natural that we started reading it backwards. These are December's projects: the Advent Calendar Forest upcycles old sweaters into festive conifers, while St. Lucia's Crown of Light makes use of paper quilling technique. The month is rounded out with a Glittery Mini Menorah made with Paperclay, Woodland Gnomes constructed of pinecones, and a darling Gingerbread House Tissue Box Cozy made of felt. There are projects for every age and stage, and materials are generally inexpensive or free.
A section at the end of the book highlights a few packaging and wrapping projects, including a Monster Gift Box made from recycled food boxes and bows made from kids' drawings. The book could make a great gift, or if you're looking for a kid-made holiday gift idea then it could provide the inspiration. The creative brain behind this operation is crafty blogger Heidi Kenney of My Paper Crane, whose winning combination of adorable and edgy gets us every time.
