Crafts to Keep Kids Busy This Season

As we gear up for the holidays, a lot of us find ourselves with long to-do list and limited time--and kids happy to be home from school but getting a little stir-crazy (or maybe just making us feel crazy). Here are a few ideas for keeping them busy so you can go about menu-prepping, wishlist-filling, and, hopefully, doing some crafting of your own.
