Hi! It’s Jen from The Smitten Chicken! Today, I am sharing something that I love to do: decorate for the holidays. I love the holidays—all of them! I have a lot of fun decorations that I bring out for Fall and Halloween, but many of my decorations are breakable. As someone with a lot of kids, this is not a good combination—kids and breakables, right? I started leaving the breakables packed away, but I still missed some of my favorite decorations.
So I came up with a new solution: kid-friendly decorations!
With decorations that the kids can touch and play with, I can still put up my favorite decorations (high and out of reach) without a worry. My kids are so distracted by the fun and friendly decorations, they leave the others alone. It’s a win-win!
That’s why I was thrilled to find the Sizzix Cat-Pumpkin Bigz L Die! Each die-cut is a perfect decoration for children. My own kids went crazy playing with this. The coolest part? It’s reversible! My kids love that the die can be a cat!
Or a pumpkin!
They are always flipping it inside out. I never know which one it will be when I walk past.
Do you want to make your décor more kid friendly? Then you need to make one of these ASAP! These are the supplies you will need:
- Sizzix® Big Shot™ Plus
- Sizzix Bigz™ L Die- Cat/Pumpkin (#661277)
- Sizzix Accessory - Stuffing Tool, 10" (#662539)
- Felt (Orange, Black, Green)
- Fabric (Black, Orange)
- Sewing Machine
Once you complete your Cat Pumpkin Softie, you can share your creations! I love sharing my creations with my kids. Doesn’t this look like so much fun? It’s a cat!
It’s a pumpkin, too!
And guess what? This decoration won’t break. Mission accomplished!
Good luck decorating with the kids!
