Dear Reader,

I don’t have words to adequately express my horror over the Newtown murders. But in my role as an online curator, I did want to share this page from Snopes that tries to determine which online rumors are true (Kaitlin Roig is a teacher who saved many children) and which are false (Morgan Freeman did not write the widely-distributed quote about mental health care.)

Christmas Crafts Printable (** for premium members only)

“‘Tis the season to be jolly.” And Christmas crafts certainly add to the season’s jolliness, don’t you think? This week’s website picks showcase Christmas craft projects for kids of all ages.

All Free Crafts: Christmas
With more than 150 original Christmas crafts, All Free Crafts is quite a find. Organized into six categories (such as Santa Crafts, Light Bulb Crafts and Easy Tree Trims) many of the projects focus on using recycled household items, and all have photos of the finished project. Other featured holidays include Valentines Day, Mother’s Day, and Halloween.

All Kids Network: Kids Christmas Crafts
“All of these Christmas themed crafts were made in our own home so we know that they are fun and child-friendly. So light a fire in the fireplace, make some hot cocoa, put on your favorite holiday movie and gather the family around the table to make some of our great kids Christmas crafts!” This Christmas page has a couple dozen projects, with links to printable worksheets, coloring pages, and mazes in the right-hand column.

Busy Bee Kids Crafts: Christmas Crafts for Kids
“This Christmas why not create a Posable Reindeer, make your own homemade Christmas Ornaments with our Salt Dough Recipe, or design your own Winter Window card for a special homemade teacher gift?” Visit Busy Bee Kids Crafts for three dozen illustrated craft projects (for ages two and up) and last, but not least, a whole slew of Christmas printables including coloring pages, word search puzzles and dot-to-dots.
