Handmade Christmas

or at least act surprised when the boys give you their gift!
I always try to find a craft the boys can make to give for Christmas. We've made soap, ornaments, rice bags, you name it-we've made it!
I came across this idea from 'We Are THAT Family' and totally stole it!
Handmade coasters.
Buy a box or two of small tiles and stamp or stencil on a pretty design:

Spray on a little polyurethane to seal and place those felt rounds in each corner of the tile:

The boys really enjoyed making these coasters! I think I'm going back to Home Depot for another box of tiles...I want the kids to make some for ME!

Oh, who am I kidding? Who's going to use a coaster in THIS house?

Ha! Glad you like them because you ARE getting them from the boys this Christmas! They are giving them to all the adults this year and I have to say they turned out really cute!
