The kids are home for Christmas break and are bored already. The weather is cold, wet and nasty. What do you do? Keep them busy making something with their hands, instead of you tearing your hair out.
Candle making is a tradition from the Old Country. Hanging wicks and dipping them in wax until the candle is the correct consistency was something we did in art class. Get the family together during the holiday season and teach the kids how to make beeswax candles.
One exceptional and fun way to save money this holiday season is to make your own gift wrap and holiday cards. Holiday cards can cost hundreds of dollars. And gift wrap can be almost as expensive.
