Magic friends, here’s the big news… in the spirit of sharing the light, I’m giving away a Winter Magic Craft Box to one lucky family.
I thank you all for getting the word out there that this is a magical crafting experience just waiting to be enjoyed! What a lovely Christmas gift for a creative family.
If you are still unfamiliar with the Magic Craft Box, here’s the crux of it…
Life is busy. We often don’t have the time to find all of the goodies we need to make the things we’d like to make with our children. We mean to, we have good intentions, but stuff gets in the way. Sometimes we don’t know where to find all the materials. Often the local craft store doesn’t carry what we need… well, now we have The Magic Craft Box! Everything you’ll need to make beautiful handmade treasures with your children, mailed straight to your doorstep, ready and waiting for when you have a little free time to make magic with your children.
CLICK HERE to visit the Magic Craft Box Page and find out everything you need about this magical concept of crafting with children.

What a neat idea! I think making paper snowflakes withmy kids each winter willalways be a special memory for me.
These look great! My special memory is sitting down with my mom recently to needle-felt some little pumpkins while my children napped.
Would love a chance to try your Magic Craft Box! My favorite creative memory is always watching my daughter draw in the sand at the beach. So peaceful and melts my heart every time.

Thanks for the opportunity. One of my favorite creative memories is decorating Easter eggs.
Such a fun idea! I think one of my favorite creative memories is from elementary school in Norway…before Christmas every year there would be an evening ‘Christmas shop’ where we made Christmas decorations, sang Christmas songs, ate gingersnaps and had glogg. Christmas and winter crafts are my favorite to this day!
Facebook follower :-)
So many great ideas, and as ever I LOVE the open to everyone, everywhere comment ;-)
I have wonderful memories as a child of laying on the ground during a snowstorm and looking straight up into the snow falling. We had a really big flaked snowsorm a few years ago, it was nighttime and the wind was blowing! I brought the kids outside and we just lay there silent as the snow fell on our faces. I watched them as the snow caught on their eyelashes and cheeks. Can you see it? Magical moments that I remember.
Pinned it too!
This is so cool. Thanks for the chance to get one of these magic crafts for free.
My special creative memory would be this recent activity that my son and I have initiated. We began drawing random things in a piece of notepad which we fold and put in a tin can. Then like raffle entries, we pick 3 or more of these drawings and make a story out of it. We have fun stitching up stories using these images.

My favorite holiday memories are of creating special ornaments and gifts for my family every year. My mom used to make us string yards and yards of popcorn and cranberries for our tree, and after the holidays we’d leave it out for the birds to eat.

I have many crafting memories, and i think your box idea is great! My favourite from when I was young was going for autumn walks in a little reserve in the middle of suburban Auckland, NZ, and collecting bits and pieces… chestnuts, toadstools, dried leaves etc , then arranging them as a centrepiece for the dining table. and making collages.
Love this! Great giveaway and what a great box too!

I had the most fun this summer creating my Fairy garden. I cruise yard sales and good wills looking for cute little fairy things to add to it
My super Crafty memory was weaving baskets from vines in the rainforest… Great craft pack, hope I win!
i remember making rag angels and clove oranges with my mom. she made a lot of things with us as kids, but those are the ones i remember the most. i would love to have a kit like this to share with her and my daughter. <3

Lovely giveaway Doni:-) I love thinking back on the bottom print butterflies we made when my daughter was only weeks old and my son was 3 – we just painted their bots and had them sit on paper, then we added some butterfly spots using their fingers. It was so silly and fun, but created some lovely memories and pretty paintings :-)
Oooh, we would love this.
My favourite creative memory with my daughters is making our fairy garden for the first time inspired by your website :)

Love this! We did such similar things as kids! Making our own ornaments out of salt dough, popcorn strings (only once as it attracted mice), painted our windows and hung garlands of tissue paper snowflakes. There was such a satisfaction in the resourcefulness of creating our own!

We made different ornaments every year…painted noodle angels, felt snowmen, clothespin horses…so fun!

Thanks for this. I always try to make a few crafts with the kids every Christmas. This year will be different. We are living at Grandmas house this Christmas and don’t have all our crafting supplies with us. We will have fun though and make some awesome memories.
Beautiful! I love this concept. My fingers are crossed!
Oooh, my kid would go crazy for that!

I love the idea of a craft box. With a new baby, time is often an issue when coming up with craft ideas and prepping for them with my toddler. This would be a blessing to us!

I remember, as a kid, helping make woven hearts out of felt with my mom. This year, I found and modified a knitting pattern to make the same heart, just in 3-dimensional form. I want to surprise my mom with it as a way of showing how special those times crafting together were for me.

I remember sitting with my grandmother learning to sew on her old cast iron treadle sewing machine. She was so very patient and would help all of her grandchildren to learn to sew their own projects. She was so very talented and passing on her knowledge is something I will be forever grateful for.

So beautiful! Would love to win and share these with my family. Growing up in Chile with the holidays during the summer, it was fun to know we’d be off for 3 months. But my adult life has been spent here in the northern hemisphere and I love so much that is winter. I love the cozyness and closeness it brings to us all, and my husband being a teacher and having the winter break during this time, makes it even more special. And we have beautiful traditions and memories with my family now, in our own ways. But I do remember growing up, we celebrated Christmas as a block party. With a huge (live) Christmas tree, and (we) the kids would make decorations each year for the tree. All sorts, but the one I remember the most enjoying, was covering tin cans with Christmas wrapping paper and glitter, and strings and ribbons, to hang from the (very large) tree. So much fun working together with all of our friends in such a festive way.
How absolutely beautiful
What an incredible box! My favorite creative memory is making yarn dolls with my mom and sister when we were little.

One of my most memorable creative moments was when I was a kid my mother and I would make the longest paper chain we could to string around our house for Christmas. It was so much fun! i hope that my kids can look back on the things we do with as much fondness as I do that :)

I would love this magic box for my boys and me to make some beautiful gifts this fall/ winter. My favorite memory is, the boys excited faces when we soap felt balls or creatures for the baby to play with, the smell of the Soap and the excitement when its dry and she gets to play with them :)…so, it would be lovely to get this to try new tthings :) thank you!
We recently made lanterns at home for our first lantern walk tomorrow evening! Very excited! Just starting to be more creative with crafts for my boys and this would be such a wonderful gift!
Looove this idea of the magic box ! We do a lot of crafts in our family, one of my favorite ones is making little boats from walnutshells and fill them with melted down leftover candles and let them float in the kitchen sink while they are lit. It looks so pretty. We do this at the celebration of what we call ‘Maria Lichtmis’in dutch sorry don’t know the english name.

I loved making Christmas crafts as a kid with my siblings. There are too many to pick a favorite.
Hello, what a beautifull site you have, I saw it on the blog from softatheart. I live in Holland and here we celebrate the feast of St Nicolaas and Black Peter. When my children were little I made them a Black Peter suite. Then in the time St Nicolaas was in Holland my husband and I and the children made presents for many people we know. Then at 5 december, the birthday of St Nicolaas, the children were dressed up als Black Peter en they go around knocking on doors and sprinkle pepper nuts give the presents to the people. For weeks before and after we had so much fun. Now my daughter is 20 and she babysitt on small children and at 5 december she knocks at their doors dressud up als Black Peter leaving presents for the little ones.
And I liked you on Facebook! Fingers crossed :) much love to you!

Seeing my girls spend 3 straight hours sitting still and felting at 4 and 5 years old warms my heart. They are so crafty!!!
this looks amazing!! I spent most of my natural childhood doing sewing crafts with my mother. I would love to share this experience with my BOYS!!
one summer i took a ceramics class and i loved creating new things and painting them!
I have always loved cross-stitching on linen. My kids like working with felt and pine cones.

Last year we made salt dough ornaments with my oldest and she painted them. She had a blast and I can’t wait to make more with her this year.
My special craft memory was the first time my daughter took a crayon to paper. To see her create was amazing and fulfilling even though it was just a few strokes on the paper.
I remember doing art projects with my mother
Every Christmas my sisters and I made peanut men…. I do the same with my daughter now.

My favorite creative memory is an ongoing tradition with my children. Every year we create all of our Christmas ornaments for the tree. Every year we make a different ornament. I used to be in charge of all the advent stuff—but now my oldest two even make our Advent Wreath. Advent is our favorite time of the year because of all of the crafting we do together.
My Mother would sew little dresses with matching pocketbooks and put a nickle in the pocketbook for my little doll. I remember the click clack of the sewing machine and watching her doing this for Christmas time.
My favorite creative memory is my mother made me a Strawberry Shortcake ornament for our Christmas tree when I was real little, we still have it and hang it on her tree every year.

I remember making a hallway mirror look like stained glass
I love watching my grandmother measure her grand kids (I’m one of them) and great grands for blankets, mittens and hats.
This summer my kids and I created a mermaid’s cove with the shells/pebbles etc we had brought back from a holiday on the west coast of Ireland. Your Winter Magic Craft Box looks amazing.

A special creative memory I have is making Christmas cookies with my sisters and Mom. We would make all kinds of shapes. I now carry on that tradition with my two sons.
My favorite memory is a good friend and I made kitchen hangings out of yarn and country material and put cotton balls in them with cinnamon flavoring on them. It would make your kitchen smell wonderful. My friend is now deceased but I love that memory.
This is adorable! I love it. My special memory is decorating our tree with my grandmom while listening to Christmas music. About 75% of the ornaments were made by me and my cousins when we were little, and we love seeing them every year, especially as a symbol of how much we’ve grown since we were that little.

This looks like so much fun to do. I try to find some kind of craft each year for my daughter and I to do together, last year we attempted homemade Christmas ornaments. The key word there is attempted, LOL, but it was still fun!!!
I remember my grandma showing me how to make paper beads with old magazine pages & glue. We used the beads on a ribbon for the x-mas tree.

I am already subscribed, but forgot to mention a memory above. I loved making Christmas crafts with my mother when I was little. Simple things like cutting Christmas shaped out of cardboard and decorating with sparkles, such a special memory.
Mine is when my 6 year old who had been watching her grandmother knit came home and tried to teach me how to knit. With a little struggle on my part we did manage to make a tiny scarf for her barbie. That will always be a special memory to me
My favorite memory is decorating cookies during Christmas.

I love creating anything with my daughter. We do craft days where it’s everyone out of the trunk and lets see what we can do or basically crayons and blank paper to see what we can draw!
What magical ideas for creating with children. I remember creating little fairy homes when i was small spending all day out in the garden, picking carrots to snack on and filling my cubby with grass for carpet. Thankyou for such a wonderful giveaway xxxxx
I have so many great memories of creating and crafting with my boys! My very favorite was two falls ago…we made a life size “enchanted” tree on one of their bedroom walls. We painted the coolest tree trunk and started taping colorful leaves of various sizes and shapes all over. Every time we went walking we brought home our “loot” and added to our tree. By winter, we had covered almost the entire wall and it was the most amazing creation ever. Friends and family were always awestruck when they saw it. My boys were so proud of it.
I remember a wonderful craft book I had as a child that had great simple crafts.
I make homemade ornaments with my kids every year….sometime the cookie cutter ones you bake and paint, or making candy canes with pipe cleaners and beads. We both enjoy it.
I remember my wife creating craft accessories for our daughter.

With my young twins we recently made a fall leaf garland by dipping each collected leaf in hot beeswax and then taking turns completing a running stitch with wool yarn through the top of each cooled leaf. The garland smells lovely and remains bright nearly a month later. Thank you for posting this generous give away.

I found the Magic Craft Box on etsy a few days ago and I love the idea! Here’s my creative memory….my 4 year old and I collected small fallen twigs from outside and made a twig lantern. It turned out to be more beautiful than I thought, but the really magical part was putting it on the coffee table and lighting it at night. Watching the wonder in my son’s eyes and seeing how much he enjoyed the simple beauty from our project was amazing!

My family didn’t have a lot of money to spend on toys, so my sister and I got creative and made Barbie doll furniture from paper cups, cheese boxes and pencils. We sewed doll clothes and small quilts from scraps of fabric my mom had from other projects.
Wow, what a lovely christmas decoration :-)
