Make Gingerland Village this Holiday’s Destination

Winter is approaching and that means spending more time inside away from the cold! To keep the kiddos occupied, our December 2017 Box offered some fun crafts and the kids were able to make their own Gingerland Village. We also found that these crafts were great to put on display for all the family to see when they come to visit this Holiday season!

In our December 2017 Box, the special art material we used were oil pastels. We also used some other fun materials such as colorful pom poms!

As you can see, some people were all smiles when they got to open this month’s craft box.

The first things the kids had to do for their Gingerland Village was to make their Gingerbread Friends! The kids also made sure the Gingerbread Friends would not get lonely, and made pet kittens for them!

They were able to add oil pastels, pom poms, and glitter to make their Gingerbread Friends shine.

If you wanted to make your Gingerbread Friends extra sweet, you had the option to add candy canes to their hands!

We couldn’t forget the Gingerbread Friend’s own Christmas tree either! By adding pom poms, the tree turned out super cute and colorful.

And last, but certainly not least, the kittens turned out purrfect!

I think my favorite part of the Gingerbread Friends is that you had the choice to write a short holiday greeting to the person of your choice! We definitely thought it was a cute and simple way to let your loved ones know that you were thinking of them during the holidays.

The next part to get the Gingerland Village up and running is to make the houses that the Gingerbread Friends will live in.

This part of the craft let the kid’s imagination flow as they were able to decorate their houses with a lot of different materials such as the oil pastels, colorful pom poms, and white cotton balls to make it look like snow perched on the roof!

Holiday messages can also be written in the Gingerbread Friend’s houses!

The last part of this was where the magic happened, which was when we put the Gingerbread Friends in Gingerland Village!

Assembling these items together turns out great and adds cheer and joy to the house! Who knows, maybe Elf on the Shelf will pay Gingerland a visit.

The last thing that was great about this craft is that it gives the family a chance to sit down and spend time together. That is a big inspiration behind this box and nothing beats spending time with the family, making crafts, and listening to some holiday music!

I hope that everyone has the happiest of holidays! If you are interested in getting a box like this in the future, visit our website at


We’d Like a Moment to Gobble about our November 2017 Box!

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and I wanted to share some crafts that your whole family is sure to gobble up! I am so thankful for my family and the memories I get to make with them. I am also thankful that I get to share crafts like these with your families! Get ready to feast your eyes on some crafts that will serve as great decorations during your Thanksgiving dinner.

Our November 2017 Box had some fun materials!

The special art material for the November 2017 Box were the Magic Nuudle Puffs.

This month’s box had a couple of crafts that were fun for the kids to make and also reminded them of the things that they are thankful for!

In our first craft we were able to make our Little Turkey Friend!

This craft allowed the kids to get really creative making their turkeys. They were able to color it just the way they wanted and add Magic Nuudle Puffs at the size of their choice!

The kids also learned a little about blending colors, as it was suggested to blend the window crayons with your fingers to give the turkey a feathered effect.

This cute turkey face is irresistible!

The tail of the turkey was also fun for the kids to decorate, and they were able to draw silly spirals and use some bright colors!

Our Little Turkey Friend was also easy to assemble! It is also a great decoration for the table, sitting next to the real turkey during Thanksgiving dinner.

After making Our Little Turkey Friend, we moved onto the Thankful Tree! 

When starting this craft, we made some thankful leaves. Thankful leaves are simply leaves that have some color added to them and something that you are thankful for are written on them! Some examples could me Mom, Dad, Grandpa, or Pumpkin Pie!

It was a great way for the kids to show what they were thankful for and having fun while doing it!

We also let the kids draw on the window! That will be something to keep them away from drawing on the walls…

The thankful tree is great for all year round, as there is never a time to stop being thankful for the things you cherish in life.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy Thanksgiving and that November brings you many blessings!



Trick or Treat! Check our BOOtiful October Crafts

It’s almost that time of year where we start picking out our BOO-tiful pumpkins and silly costumes! I wanted to share some easy crafts to do with the kids to spook up the house, while avoiding all the pumpkin guts that comes with carving pumpkins. Our October Box had crafts that were silly and great to hang on the fridge or in a window, so all the other trick-or-treaters could see!

Let’s start out with some of the materials that were in the October 2017 box!

For this month, our special art material was chalk!

This is a picture of the fun we had unboxing the October 2017 Box and the kids were eager to see what they were going to make.

In the craft above, the kids used the chalk to decorate some cloth masks. They had a lot of fun making and personalizing their masks the way they wanted.

Another plus is that they turned out super cute!

In the next craft that was featured in the October 2017 Box, the kids were able to make and decorate their own spider puppets!

The kids were able to decorate their own spiders with googly eyes and add some color to them with the chalk.

Looks spiderific to me!

The last craft was my personal favorite, and gave all the other trick-or-treaters pumpkin’ to talk about!

With a little help from the glue stick, the kids were provided with some pumpkin cutouts and were able to bring them to life with a little glitter and some googly eyes!

Looking Gourd!
