Our holiday bucket list this year is filled with fun things we can do together at home. Baking cookies, making hot chocolate, decorating our Christmas tree, snuggling up and watching holiday shows and movies. Oh, and lots and lots of crafting!
My kiddos love making things. Give them glue, markers, paint and paper, and their imaginations run wild. I love watching them work together to create something special to give to their grandparents or hang on our refrigerator door. It’s simple and sweet, and during this time of year it gives us a chance to make holiday memories as a family.
To celebrate the upcoming new Blue’s Clues & You! Holiday Special we came up with a cute craft idea that was easy and fun for everyone. My oldest grew up with the Blue’s Clues crew, and now my youngest is obsessed with the show. It’s such a great show for preschoolers! The characters engage little ones in playing, dancing, singing and clapping along while they learn and laugh.
In the show Blue leaves a paw print “clue” on objects around her house to help answer the question of the day. Our craft follows the Blue’s Clues theme by giving kiddos a chance to use their “paws” to create snowflakes to hang around the house.
Best of all, it’s super simple! You’ll need some card stock paper, blue paint, paper plates, glue and glitter. Have your child dip their open palm in paint and place on the paper. Make another handprint and continue around the page. Don’t worry about messing up. Just like snowflakes this craft is meant to be completely unique to you!
Make your snowflakes sparkle with a few lines of glue and sprinkles of glitter. Add a piece of string and hang up your paw print piece of artwork for all to see.
We can’t wait to tune into Nickelodeon and watch Blue’s Clues & You! Holiday Special tomorrow, December 4th at 11/10c. We are so excited because this special episode features the original hosts of Blue’s Clues, Steve & Joe. It’s the Night Before Christmas with Josh and Blue and there’s lots of holiday fun for all. Decorate the tree with Steve, visit Santa’s Workshop and play Blues Clues along the way to try and guess what Blue wants for Christmas.
We’re excited to celebrate a night full of Christmas traditions with Blue’s Clues and You! Hope you’ll join us and happy holidays!
