When I was younger, my mom would get together with her mom and sisters and have a craft day in December that lasted ALL DAY. Once I was in college, they decided to let their daughters join in. So it's been a few years now and our group is growing - my grandma, aunts, mom, sister, and girl cousins and the girls that are married/dating my brothers and boy cousins.
We get to have fun crafts and eat yummy snacks/goodies all day. Here are a couple of the crafts that we did - different people in the group teach us how to make a craft, or a food or one year my aunt taught us how to make balloon animals. It's so much fun to get together and to see how everyone's craft can turn out so differently from eachother.
Winter soap - this was the project I brought for everyone to make - a different version of the Halloween Soap.
