Get Crafty This Holiday Season With Nestle!

Lunchbox disclosure

During the holidays we do a lot of fun things, everything from baking to making fun Christmas themed crafts. We’ve been having fun getting a little “crafty” with our Elf on The Shelf…check out some of the “crafts” she’s been doing while the kids sleep!

Elf On The Shelf

While these aren’t necessarily hands on for my kids, we are looking forward to getting crafty together as a family these next few weeks until Christmas. Thankfully, Nestle is helping out in the idea department, with “Nestle Holiday Countdown”.

Check out this adorable paper ornament we will be making!

For the template, just head to to download! It will be under December 10 on the calendar. A few times a week, from November 18th to December 31st, Nestle will be unveiling a new holiday treat for the whole family to enjoy at! These treats can range from online activities, such as holiday eCard creators, printable crafts and even gift card giveaways! There will be several Walmart gift card entry periods, with gift card prizes ranging from $25-$100. They won’t reveal which days the prizes will be available, so visit often to find them!

I have been checking them out over the last couple of weeks and loved the Thanksgiving Greetings, Happy Hanukkah Place Cards, Holiday Helper Prep List, and the Thankfulness tree is something I want to implement in our house year round. They have had such great ideas and fun things, I can’t wait to see what the rest of the days bring. Remember to check back a few times a week to see the newest fun and see if you have a chance to enter one of those Walmart gift cards, I am sure that will come in very handy over the holidays!

Now, I am off to bake some of those famous Nestle chocolate chip cookies! They are a holiday staple in this house! What are some of your favorite holiday crafts and foods??
