Soleil Moon Frye: How to Make a Holiday Snow Globe

12/17/2013 at 02:00 PM ET

To get an idea of how many arts and crafts projects Soleil Moon Frye works on with her two daughters, Poet, 8, and Jagger, 5, just take a look around their L.A. home.

“Our tiles are covered in paint. If you look under our couch pillows, there is paint. Our table is covered in paint,” says the expectant mom-of-two. “It’s very, very messy, but that’s the fun of it.”

That fun reaches North Pole-like levels on Christmas Eve, when the former child star, 37, and her husband, producer Jason Goldberg, 43, host a holiday blowout — complete with a crafting area for the littlest guests.

“We always have a ‘Santa’s Station’ set out with space for the kids to draw and create,” says Frye, who recently released her book Let’s Get This Party Started: DIY Celebrations for You and Your Kids to Create Together.

“We go crazy on holidays. We get little picture frames to decorate. We’ll make garlands that we decorate with lots of glitter. And homemade snow globes are a really good Christmas craft.”

Very good site you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any user discussion forums that cover the
same topics talked about here? I’d really love to be a part of online community where
I can get feedback from other experienced people that
share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know.

Bless you!
