Candy Cane Ornaments Here's an easy craft to do with children: Create pipe cleaner candy canes to hang on your Christmas tree. Fun for young children to make and give as gifts, too- items can be found at your local craft store.
Brilliant party idea for kids: Monster Mural. Dip rubber spike balls in tempera paint, toss them at a paper-covered wall to create monster-shaped splats. When the paint dries, draw on zany faces and you've got your Monster Mural!
