20 Christmas Crafts and Activities to Keep Your Kids Busy

Is anyone else wondering how they’re going to keep their kids occupied during sick days this winter (anyone else’s home seem plagued by constant illness so far this school year?!) or when school is out for winter break at the end of next month? By the time the holidays arrive, I think we can all agree it’s time for moms to get a winter break too.
