“Maybe Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more!”
The Grinch did get something right, when he said that Christmas didn’t come from a store. We agree; a handmade Christmas is so much better! There’s something very charming about gifts made from the heart and food cooked at home. But this doesn’t mean that handmade is restricted to adults. Even the little ones can chime in, with some easy Christmas Cards for toddlers to make – simple, yet pretty!
