Luminaries Craft for the Holiday's #childrenscrafts

Are you looking for a fun and easy way to keep your children busy during the Holiday season, one way is by creating these easy Luminaries. Inspired by a quick Google search one afternoon. I am visual person so I like to Google images of crafts or ideas that I can create with my children. My kids are also very hands on especially my Cami. They love cutting shapes or paper in general and using their handy-dandy glue-sticks, skills they are learning in pre-school. I decided to help them create these easy kid-friendly centerpieces.

If you too want to help your children create these fun and very easy luminaries to shine some light on your upcoming Holiday dinners here is what you will need: 

  1. Simple White Paper Bags
  2. Tissue Paper
  3. Stickers for added decorations
  4. Scissors-not pictured
  5. Glue Sticks-not pictured
  6. Candles-not pictured - I used small/medium size candles in glass holders 
{Please remember that the candles can become very hot, they are only for temporary lighting and should be in sight at all times as well as turned off over night.} 

  • First; we cut shapes in our paper bags: I opened the bags, folded them in half and cut simple shapes. 
  • Then we cut our Tissue Paper shapes; such as snowflakes, Christmas trees and a flower. {I traced the shapes for my kids and helped them cut them out.}
  • We then glued them to our bags and placed our candles inside.
It was so easy, my children loved the fun Holiday activity.  Are you doing any fun Holiday crafting? Please share some of your favorites with us!
