There are some things I can’t imagine not having around the holidays. One of these items might surprise some, but I can’t imagine the holidays without my Echo dot and Alexa. This holiday season we added even more magic to our house with the Echo Dot Kids Edition.  What an awesome device! I knew when I read about it that it would be pretty cool, but I had no idea how much fun it would add to our home and how much it would ignite a spark in our kids. I think by now everyone knows that you can ask Alexa questions, but this usefulness is multiplied by 10 when you have kids.

Kids Gift Idea: Homemade Christmas Play Scene

Easy

“The Crayola product, gift card, information, and additional gift pack have been provided by Crayola.”

My little girl has been begging me to make some gifts for all her friends. I wanted to to something they would really enjoy and something that didn't involve sweets. We had some Crayola modeling clay and I thought making little holiday play scenes would be a great and easy gift idea! The best part is my kids loved making them and it was a project they could do all by themselves without my help.

All that was required for this gift was one pack of Crayola modeling clay and a little imagination! You could really make any sort of scene and do this for any holiday or birthday.

We made several packs for friends and one pack each for my kiddos. We put them on a coffee table to display and they can move the snowmen around and play with them anytime they want.

Inside the Crayola Modeling Clay box it shows you how to mix different color clay to make the colors you want.

These will definitely be a great hit with all my little girls friends! .

Want to make some great Crayola crafts with your kiddos? Be sure to check out the Crayola Pinterest page and the holiday page here.

About Mamas Spot

We are a family of four that left it all behind to go travel the world. No, literally we left it all. We sold all of our possessions, packed what we could into four suitcases and said goodbye to suburban life. All we own is now pulled behind us as we travel to new and exciting destinations. Showing our kids the world and teaching them about new cultures, food, and ways of life is now our 9-5.

We love watching our kids learn, and learning along side them. Together we have now explored many new countries, visited family on the other side of the world, and made memories that will last a lifetime.

Welcome to our journey!
