Great Gifts: Time & Creativity

Looking for a holiday gift that will:

  • provide quality time together… the kind that builds fond memories;
  • teach handy life skills;
  • produce a useful and creative outcome;
  • keep on giving;
  • link children and their families to nature?

Then look no further! Here are two ideas that meet all the above criteria. All you need to do is:

  • print off the instruction page for the project,
  • look at the materials list,
  • purchase  the materials,
  • wrap them in an appropriate box
  • plan time on your schedule to do the project with the gift recipient!
