We used to live in South Africa where Christmas is associated with hot sun, swim and barbeque. We always thought snowmen and reindeer were quite strange Christmas ideas!

But now we live in Switzerland and we love to embrace the snow and winter holiday ideas. And, therefore we share our Christmas snowman cards and three more Christmas tree cards made for our South African families!

Snowman Christmas Cards

Cute Christmas card ideas with crafts for kids. Do your own homemade Christmas card this year. See how now! #christmascardideas #christmascards #crafts for kids #homemadecards #christmasideas

This DIY card is a perfect Christmas craft project for the kids. Depending on their age, you can help them cut the various pieces and then let them put everything together by themselves. Or, when they are old enough, let them do the cutting as well.

What you need

The best part is, you probably have most of the materials you need at home already. And, if you need some of the less common materials at an affordable price, just click the item in the list below to view options.

To help you source only the best quality products, I will recommend one product with each card. These recommended products I use myself and cannot imagine crafting without! And, I am sure you will love them just as much as me!

Hope this will help you source the best products to create your own Christmas cards.

Materials Christmas card ideas with crafts for kids. Do your own homemade Christmas card this year. See how now! #christmascardideas #christmascards #crafts for kids #homemadecards #christmasideas

My Product Recommendation Googly Eyes

This Christmas card only came alive after we added the googly plastic eyes! Yes, you can draw the eyes or add stickers. But, like with many other craft projects, the plastic eyes added another dimension and made the snowman card so much more special. Give it a try!

I always buy them in big amounts and in different sizes at a very affordable price, so we have them at hand for any project we are doing. You will enjoy having them at hand to create even more awesome art pieces.

Creating your Snowman

Fold white cardstock in half. You can use any size but standard A4 works well. Draw three circles from top to bottom, small to big, all touching sides. You can draw the circles by hand, trace from a round object or print them.

The next step is to cut around your circles’ outline. Make sure to leave the top part attached on the fold. See picture arrow below.  Don’t cut through, otherwise, you will have two snowmen instead of an opening card!

Dressing and Decorating your Snowman

The suggestions below will guide you creating a beautiful card but do not be scared to add your own personal touches. And, give the kids free reign.

Remember No Rules!

Christmas Snowman Arms

Cut two arms with fingers from your textured stock. Glue to the back of your card, just above the middle of the second circle. Try them in different positions and at different angles for extra fun.

Christmas Snowman Hat

Design Christmas card ideas with crafts for kids. Do your own homemade Christmas card this year. See how now! #christmascardideas #christmascards #crafts for kids #homemadecards #christmasideasYou can either cut the shape of a hat freehand or draw one with a pencil on the back of your colored stock of choice and then cut out.

Use your glue stick to attach the hat to the front of your snowman.

Place the hats on your cards at different angles to create cute variation.

Decorate your hat with feathers, embellishments, flowers or any decoration you prefer.

Top Tip

I always use a good quality pencil in a similar color to the stock card to add shadow and accentuate curves and lines. You will be amazed at the difference this small action makes to your final product.

Christmas Snowman Face

  • Stick two googly eyes on the face.
  • Use an orange stock card to cut a nose in a carrot shape and stick to the middle of the face. Highlight with an orange pencil.
  • Optional: use a red pencil to draw a little smiley mouth. My kids said that a Christmas snowman has to be friendly and that’s why we drew the smileys!

Christmas Snowman Buttons and Scarf

No snowman is complete without a scarf and buttons!

  • tie a short piece of colored ribbon around the neck
  • add two or more fun buttons to the body.

Add a Christmas Message

Your Christmas Snowman card is now complete. Add a personal message inside and impress friend and family with your own DIY card.

This is another great card the kids can do by themselves.

What you need

Christmas card ideas for kids. Great craft the kids can do for Christmas. Check it out now. #christmasideas #christmascard #christmascrafts #kidscrafts #carddiy

  • colored stock card
  • strips of colored paper
    • various colors, cut in half to one cm width strips of various lengths ranging from 2 to 7 cm
    • we used gummed paper to make it even easier but standard paper and a glue stick gives the same effect
  • stickers and embellishments
  • card stock

My Product Recommendation Gummed Paper

I love gummed paper! We use it very often. For little hands, it is much easier to wet the back and stick, than to work with a glue stick. The kids also enjoy working with it. Few things better than getting to wet paper with a finger! And, it comes in all different colors and sizes. This is our favorite one. Check it out!

Creating your Christmas Tree card

Cut and fold cardstock to create a card with a size of your choice. The kids simply arranged the strips from bottom to top in decreasing size order to create a tree.

Place a wider piece at the bottom to create a bottom for your tree. Then stick your stickers and embellishments onto the tree. We also added a colored stick to the top of the bottom piece to add extra dimension.

Complete with a shiny star sticker at the top.

While the kids were busy creating the Christmas Card Trees and Snowmen, I made some cards of my own. I love designs that are a bit less traditional and have some element of surprise. And, that is exactly why I love this one!

What you need

My Product Recommendation  Fine Liner Pens

The first thing I reach for when we start making is cards is my fine liner pens. You will love drawing with these pens! They are great to accentuate fine lines and add delicate touches. You should try them in all colors and see why I use them all the time.

Modern Christmas card ideas.. Beautiful Christmas DIY. Check it out now. #christmasideas #christmascard #christmascrafts #kidscrafts #carddiyFor these cards, I chose to use only silver and turquoise – my favorite color!

But you can make a similar card in rainbow colors, or any color of your choice, like this one, with red accents.

*Original inspiration: here

Create your modern Christmas Tree Card

Use your thin black pen to draw the Christmas tree free hand and embellish with gems and stars. As many or as little as you want! With the colored pencil, I added small accent colors in a circular shape on the line.

Top Tip

Lightly pencil draw a triangle where you want your tree to be. Then do the doodle in the triangle to ensure a proper tree shape. I recommend you try doodle shape on a piece of paper before attempting it on your card.

The first one or two I drew, didn’t quite resemble a tree …

Unicorn Birthday Party – Our Best Party Ideas

A Unicorn Birthday Party for My Little Girl

For her sixth birthday my daughter wanted a unicorn birthday party. Not surprising as most little girls adore unicorns and rainbows.

And of course, this is a party idea every mom love to pursue … Who doesn’t believe in unicorn magic, right?Unicorn Birthday Party with unicorn costume, birthday invitation, treats, unicorn cake, birthday games and birthday favors. #unicornparty #birthdayparty #birthdayfavors #unicorncake #pinata

We had so much fun creating the unicorn games, pinata, cakes, games and treats for the unicorn party and I hope you will enjoy reading all about it!

Unicorn Birthday Party Invitations

Unicorn Birthday Party Invitations with unicorn costume, birthday invitation, treats, unicorn cake, birthday games and birthday favors. #unicornparty #birthdayparty #birthdayfavors #unicorncake #pinataLike any party, we started the party arrangements by printing invitations. I decided to keep it simple, and created a powerpoint slide with rainbow, unicorn, and balloons. Then, simply added all the what and when details.

We printed the invitations out and stuck the printed image on a beautiful cardstock. Inside an envelope, it went and ready for hand out. It doesn’t get any simpler than that!

We decorated a dreamy table with soft pink, blues and greens, and a unicorn re-usable tablecloth. My daughter chose these pretty unicorn plates and napkins.

If you want to add some more decorations, check out this beautiful free printable banner. 

Unicorn Birthday Party Outfit

No party is without dressing up and that’s why we made some rainbow unicorn horns for every guest!

Costume, Unicorn Birthday Party with unicorn costume, birthday invitation, treats, unicorn cake, birthday games and birthday favors. #unicornparty #birthdayparty #birthdayfavors #unicorncake #pinataWe easily created the unicorn horns with rolled felt, covered in rainbow ribbon and attaching an elastic. We made a horn for each friend and they sure love wearing them. I added a bit more ribbon to the horn for our guest of honor!

Costume, Unicorn Birthday Party with unicorn costume, birthday invitation, treats, unicorn cake, birthday games and birthday favors. #unicornparty #birthdayparty #birthdayfavors #unicorncake #pinataOther than the making the horns I sew a colorful tutu for my daughter and she wore it with a pretty unicorn t-shirt. Not up for sewing a tutu, I also love these personalized tutu and rainbow tutu skirts.

No princess outfit is however complete without a crown. So we added some sparkly beads to a felt crown and made sure she can wear it together with the unicorn horn.

Not up to making your own, check out this beautiful unicorn headband.

Unicorn Birthday Party Cake

Baking the cake is always one of my favorite parts of arranging a party. I love working with fondant icing and creating this coach with a princess and a unicorn was lots of fun.

Unicorn Birthday Party Treats

We made little unicorn faces from marshmallows and it was a super treat. You can find a step by step tutorial on how to make similar unicorn treats from The decorated cookie.

Unicorn treats for Birthday Party with unicorn costume, birthday invitation, treats, unicorn cake, birthday games and birthday favors. #unicornparty #birthdayparty #birthdayfavors #unicorncake #pinata

I simply added a white marshmallow to a straw and used a food pen to create eyes. The horn, ears, and stars were made from fondant icing and stuck onto the marshmallow using a little sugar paste.

So easy and yet so cute! This is one of my favorite suppliers of soft, fresh fondant icing.

Unicorn cupcakes for Birthday Party with unicorn costume, birthday invitation, treats, unicorn cake, birthday games and birthday favors. #unicornparty #birthdayparty #birthdayfavors #unicorncake #pinata

We baked some chocolate cupcakes with girly pink frosting, and, topped them with fondant flowers and hearts for sparkle magic. Place them in a pretty cupcake wrapper and they are ready to be devoured. This cupcake kit makes life very easy!

A secret tip to transform a standard cupcake into an awesome cupcake …

Unicorn Birthday Party Pinata

I made the first pinata 2 years ago, and since then it is the first thing my kids ask for when we plan their birthdays. Having a pinata not only adds to your party decorations but also creates another activity and allows the kids to play with the toys and take it home. Unicorn Birthday Party with unicorn costume, birthday invitation, treats, unicorn cake, birthday games and birthday favors. #unicornparty #birthdayparty #birthdayfavors #unicorncake #pinata We always fill the pinata not only with sweets but also with a lot of small toys as I am not a fan of having too many sweets around … Just make sure the toys you add won’t break when falling on the ground.

Unicorn Birthday Party Activities

Doing a fun activity is always a big part of our parties. Giving the kids a chance to create something to remind them of the awesome party they had.  For the unicorn birthday party, we decided to paint unicorn tote bags and make dream catchers.

I found these unicorn tote bags at a local store and the kids used acrylic paint to color them. You can easily buy or sew plain tote bags and trace unicorn pictures on them to create the same thing.

For the dream catcher, I cut the hoof shape from a paper plate, added a string at the top and punched holes at the bottom. The girls could then decorate their own with beads, crystals, ribbons, shapes, and feathers.

Unicorn Birthday Party Favors and Thank You Cards

The best part of any party is always leaving the kids with a little surprise to take home and remember the magic. Each little princess received a string bag, unicorn plush toy and a unicorn crayon. They sure loved it! Depending on your budget, you can make the party favors as big or small as you want.

Here are a couple of affordable options for a unicorn plush toy

Unicorn Birthday Party Games

We played a lot of unicorn party games including Pass a Parcel and Musical Statues. And, who doesn`t love the old – pin a tail – game? And the best part of having a unicorn party, the old time favorite becomes  – pin a rainbow horn! So much more magical!

Unicorn games for Birthday Party with unicorn costume, birthday invitation, treats, unicorn cake, birthday games and birthday favors. #unicornparty #birthdayparty #birthdayfavors #unicorncake #pinata

I simply cut rainbow unicorn horn shapes, drew a unicorn on a large poster and gave it some color. We stuck it on the wall and the kids were blindfolded trying to pin the horn in the perfect position. Loads of fun!

Gifts for little Unicorn Lover

I had so much fun looking for the perfect gift for my daughter and would love to share some of the most beautiful unicorn things I found

The Result: A Happy Daughter

We created an awesome unicorn birthday party and made everything ourselves. Arranging and preparing all the different items do take time. But, it also makes it so much more special and memorable.

My best Birthday Party Tip

Ask a friend to take as many pictures as possible. You will be too busy running around and organizing things. And, your daughter will be too busy having fun to take everything in.

There are few things as precious as sharing the awesome moments afterward by looking at photos together. You will both get to relive the magic again and again!

Handmade dolls, make your own Winter Warmer Mia doll with the easy step by step tutorial, photos and pattern #ragdol #handmandedolls #dollsDIY #dollcraft #makeyourowndoll #homemadecrafts #toddlerdoll

Why the Warmer Mia Doll was created

My daughter loves dolls! Give her a rag doll and she drags it with her all day. Experiencing sub-zero temperatures in Switzerland inspired this cute soft doll with a warm tummy.

Who the Mia Doll is perfect for

The Mia doll took my daughter’s rag doll adoration to the next level! And, I am convinced all little girls will love her own winter warmer Mia doll!

When you use only softs materials, without any small or hard embellishments, the doll is perfect for any little girl from baby to toddler. Always ensure that the heated pack is not too warm before placing it in bed with your baby.

Have you been thinking about making handmade dolls? Then now is the time with this easy tutorial.

The Winter Warmer Mia Doll

This handmade doll is a beautiful, easy to make rag doll with a re-usable rice warming pack inside her body. Nothing better than snuggling in bed with a favorite doll to keep the little ones warm.

Frugal doll making

You can easily create your own winter warmer Mia Doll from leftover fabric scraps and old clothes. Frugal living! Using fabric scraps to create handmade dolls for your kids is one of the best ways to reuse fabric.

My kids love recognizing a favorite blanket or t-shirt in one of their new handmade toys – a new favorite created!

When you don`t have enough pieces of fabric scraps or old clothes, source new fabrics from your local fabric supplier or online store.

This is an original HealthyFamilyandMe winter warmer Mia doll tutorial and pattern created for personal use only. For questions or comments, please email me at healthyfamilyandme@gmail.com.

Tip

I would not recommend decreasing the size too much, as from my experience: ‘The bigger – The better‘ goes for most little girls in terms of handmade doll size!

Cut Pattern Pieces From Fabric

Fabric instruction for Handmade dolls, make your own Winter Warmer Mia doll with the easy step by step tutorial, photos and pattern #ragdol #handmandedolls #dollsDIY #dollcraft #makeyourowndoll #homemadecrafts #toddlerdoll

Each pattern piece should be cut from the chosen fabric with seam allowances added.

Normal seam allowance is about 6.4 mm, but the easiest way to determine a good allowance is by measuring the width of your sewing machine foot.

The pattern pieces are suggested to be cut as follows and using the following fabric:

  1. Arms, legs and head using the beige cotton fabric
    • cut 2 arms, then invert the pattern piece and cut 2 more
    • then, cut 2 legs, and
    • invert the pattern piece and cut 2 more
    • cut out the face pattern
  2. Body pattern pieces 1, 2, and 3 on plain t-shirt fabric
  3. Head and hair front pieces from polar fleece fabric
  4. Skirt piece 2 from t-shirt fabric (2 pieces from each color)
  5. Skirt piece 1 from plain t-shirt fabric (2 of each)
  6. Heart and flower 1 and 2 from your preferred scraps
  7. Shoe pattern piece from t-shirt fabric
    • cut 2, then invert the pattern and cut 2 more
  8. Warmer bag pattern piece from thick winter sheeting fabric
    • cut 1 on the fold
Tip

Use a thick fabric to make the warmer bag. The thicker the fabric the longer the bag will preserve the heat.

Transfer the Face Lines

Face Pattern for Handmade dolls, make your own Winter Warmer Mia doll with the easy step by step tutorial, photos and pattern #ragdol #handmandedolls #dollsDIY #dollcraft #makeyourowndoll #homemadecrafts #toddlerdoll

  • Place the printed face pattern piece under the beige cotton facepiece and trace over the lines of the eyes and mouth.
  • Use either a grey pencil or light colored fabric marker to transfer the lines.

Sew the Arms and Legs

Arms and legs Pattern for Handmade dolls, make your own Winter Warmer Mia doll with the easy step by step tutorial, photos and pattern #ragdol #handmandedolls #dollsDIY #dollcraft #makeyourowndoll #homemadecrafts #toddlerdoll

Sew the arms

  • Place the 2 corresponding arm pieces together and sew along the edge within the seam allowance.
  • Keep the top of the upper arms open to allow for stuffing.
  • Cut small incisions around the curved edges to create a smooth curve.
  • Repeat the above for the other arm.
  • Stuff both arms firmly leaving the top 1 cm free of filling.

Sew the legs and shoes

  • Place the 4 shoe pieces (right sides up) on the bottom of the right side of the 4 leg pieces
  • Fold the top 0.5 mm of the shoe piece over, pin and sew onto each leg
  • Pin 2 legs with shoes right sides together and sew all around the edges, keeping the top of the legs open
Tips
  • Make sure the top of the shoes line up on the 2 legs when pinning
  • Repeat the same for the other leg
  • Clip around the curved edges and turn the legs right side out
  • Stuff firmly leaving the last 1 cm free of filling.

Put a Flower in Her Hair!

Flower in hair Pattern for Handmade dolls, make your own Winter Warmer Mia doll with the easy step by step tutorial, photos and pattern #ragdol #handmandedolls #dollsDIY #dollcraft #makeyourowndoll #homemadecrafts #toddlerdoll

  • Pin the front hair piece on the beige face cotton piece and
  • Pin the 2 flower pieces onto the combined face and hair pieces.
  • Sew the flower onto the hair and face pinned pieces.

The position indicated on the pattern here works well for me, but feel free to place it anywhere on the hair pattern.

Tip

Sewing a circular stitch in the middle of the flower is efficient and allows the flower petals to be moving and appear more lively.

Attach Arms and Legs

Arms and legs Pattern for Handmade dolls, make your own Winter Warmer Mia doll with the easy step by step tutorial, photos and pattern #ragdol #handmandedolls #dollsDIY #dollcraft #makeyourowndoll #homemadecrafts #toddlerdoll

  • Place and pin the arms in position with the open edge on the right side of body piece 1 and
  • Sew together.
Tips
  • Stitch twice to secure well and
  • Make sure the arms are pinned at the same height on the body piece.
  • Push the stuffing to the end of the arm to sew more easily and
  • Then distribute evenly again through the arm after sewing.

Follow the same procedure and place and pin the legs with the open edge on the right side of the bottom of body piece 1, and sew together.

Tip

Pin the legs onto the body and make sure that they are the same length before stitching in place.

Sew the Back of the Body Together

Body Pattern for Handmade dolls, make your own Winter Warmer Mia doll with the easy step by step tutorial, photos and pattern #ragdol #handmandedolls #dollsDIY #dollcraft #makeyourowndoll #homemadecrafts #toddlerdoll

  • Fold the ends of the straight sides of body pieces 3 twice at 1 cm each, pin and sew.
  • Place the two body pieces 3 overlapping on top of body piece 1 to determine the right position as they are similar width size.
  • Remove body piece 1 and pin body piece 2 on top with right sides facing and
  • Stitch along the top as indicated by the line on the photo.
Tip

The sewn piece should now be exactly the same size as body piece 1.

  • Do the same with the bottom of the hairpiece and the top of body piece 2.
  • Sew the heart decoration onto body piece 1, position, as preferred as this, is simply decorative for handmade dolls.
  • I can recommend placing it Top left of body piece 1 as it looks super cute.

Sew the Back and Front Body and Head Together

Head and body Pattern for Handmade dolls, make your own Winter Warmer Mia doll with the easy step by step tutorial, photos and pattern #ragdol #handmandedolls #dollsDIY #dollcraft #makeyourowndoll #homemadecrafts #toddlerdoll

  • Pin and sew along the edges with standard seam allowance as indicated by the dotted line.
Tip

When pinning the head pieces together make sure you do not catch the edges of the flower. You can fold the petals inside to avoid this.

Stuff the Head and Neck

  • Turn the head and body inside out.

  • Repeat for the other two skirt pieces.
  • Use a gathering stitch to sew along the top of both the skirt pieces.

  • Pull the top thread from the one side and gather the top of both skirt pieces enough to fit around the width of skirt piece 1 twice (see photos 1, 2 and 3).
  • Pin the right sides together on the short sides of the two skirt pieces 1, and sew together.
  • Pin the first skirt piece 2 onto the bottom of skirt piece 1.
  • Fixing the gathering stitch to fit around the width of skirt piece 1 (see photo 4).

  • Sew the end of elastic to the side of the back of skirt piece 1 right above the seam where the second gathered skirt piece 2 was sewn.
  • Attach a safety pin onto the end of the elastic to easily pull it through to the end later.
  • Fold the top of skirt piece 1 over the elastic, pin and
  • Sew to create a tube for the elastic.
Tip

Pin the elastic flat and take care not to sew onto the elastic when creating the tube.

  • Thread the elastic to the end with the help of the safety pin.
  • Pin securely at the end, remove the safety pin and sew across to keep it in place.

  • A similar effect can be created by using blotted lipstick on your finger.
  • You can add any additional embellishment to decorate your Mia Doll at this point, as preferred.
  • When creating handmade dolls for small children, rather avoid using small pieces that could be swallowed or possibly hurt them.

Bee Coloring Pages. Cute Free Printable Bee Art.

Who doesn’t love cute Bumble Bees?

We sure do! My daughter asked me to draw new bee coloring pages for her. Or a humble bumble bee as she calls it! And, that is how this post came to life.

Related Learning toys for kids at different developmental stages

We started talking about the life of a honey bee and how it is an endangered species. It became a much-loved topic we discussed for days on end.

We saw some awesome bumblebee images and honey bee coloring pages and then decided to create our own.

This is an awesome educational topic to share with your kids. And, you will be amazed at the brilliant bee facts that you probably didn’t even know yourself.

You can find some inspiration from these hands-on learning ideas for kids.  We really enjoyed this free printable bee spotters guide. Never knew there were so many different bees out there…

And, if you want to invest in a great book about bee facts, I can strongly recommend these:

  • Five Bizzy Honey Bees – The Fun and Factual Life of the Honey Bee: Captivating, Educational, and Fact. You will all love this Picture Book about Bees for Toddlers, Kids, Children, and Adults.
  • A Bee’s Life, a non-fictional read from TIME for KIDS

P.S. when you need to buy non-fictional books for your kids, Time for Kids should be your go-to guide. They cover a lot of topics and provide information for kids in an easy and interesting way. I always search this list first when looking for or a new tool to educate my kids.

You can also read more about the wonders of bee live in this recent Guardian article. Or, about the fascinating perfume patterns, the bumblebee uses to tell flowers apart. Another interesting read is Saving bees one hive at a time.

Loooking for the Best Learning Toys for Your Child! Then check this out!

A Special Collection Bonus SecretColoring Fun for the Kids. A beautiful book with more than 40 unique images #coloring #kidscoloring

My kids constantly have requests for new coloring images. This resulted in me creating loads of unique images to their likes and preferences.

There are images of animals, fairies, elves, snowmen, underwater creatures and so much more.

I quickly realized that new coloring pictures occupy my kids for hours. It became an easy way to get them interested in a new topic. And, the part they loved best was getting to decide exactly what goes on each coloring page! It made them feel like they created it!

Of course, the coloring is only the initial fun. Have you thought about using coloring images to make gift cards? To cover school books with? To create a personalized gift wrap? Yes, these are some of the things we love using coloring images for.

Remember coloring stimulates brain development. It teaches skills like patience, attention to detail and creativity.

And, discovering how the simple task of coloring and cutting images, entertain my kids – whilst I get things done – I decided to put some of the images together in a coloring book.

 So yes, the secret is out: There is now a coloring book filled with our creations!

Knowing that moms like you would appreciate the opportunity to busy their kids with an educational activity whilst having some time free for other things. 

If you will enjoy having 43 more coloring images, you can grab your own copy. And what better time than now whilst it is on a super sale.

Decorating the biscuits with fondant bunnies is the most fun part and creating peeping bunny biscuits is so simple.

The great thing is that you can keep these biscuits in an airtight container for up to a week. Make them in advance and surprise those unexpected Easter guests with a delicious and pretty treat. The adults and kids alike will adore them.

My kids also love spoiling their schoolmates and teachers. Packing a couple of these biscuits into a see-through packet, closed with a pretty ribbon, makes for a great gift. Nobody can resist a delicious, awesome looking bunny biscuit! And that is exactly what Easter is all about: Yummy Fun!
