One of the best things about this time of year is making your own decorations with friends and family that you can treasure for years to come! Especially if you have kids, or nieces and nephews or close friends with little ones, easy crafts like the one we have for you this week can be fun and a little messy – just what every kid loves! All you need is some paper, finger paint, and a black marker.

• Paper you can use for gift tags, wrapping paper, Christmas cards, etc.
• A black sharpie
• Washable paints in several colors
First, use your black marker to draw a swirly line representing a light string. Add several small squares along the line, depicting the base of the lights on the cord.
Next, you and the kid(s) can dip a finger into different colored paint, pressing them right above each black square. You can aim for a specific pattern of colors, or do them at random. Let dry, and now you have some paper you can use for all sorts of decorating. Cut it into a circle to make a fun wreath, or use it under a table centerpiece. Maybe you could simply cut and fold into a special card for a family member!
The holidays are a time where we participate in many fun activities, but it can also be a time where our health takes a backseat. If you have a concern you’ve been meaning to get checked out, schedule a visit today by clicking below. We look forward to hearing from you!
