Christmas Crafts for Kids
Christmas break often at least a few days before the actually holiday. My kids start complaining that they are bored after about the first 2 hours. Here are some great Christmas Craft Ideas to keep the kids occupied (without electronics) while creating fun decorations for your home or gifts for others.
Candy Cane Reindeer
Are these not the cutest? They are so simple to make with candy canes, string and eyes and pom-poms from your local craft store.
The kids love making some of these each year. They make for great gifts for teachers and grandparents. Simply glue wagon-wheel pasta together, paint with gold or silver paint, and sprinkle with glitter.
Button Christmas Tree
My mother had one of these that I loved to hang up each year. We continued the tradition in my house. It’s so easy to find cute buttons at a local craft store or sewing department in a discount retailer.
I love making crafts using my kids’ hands each year. It’s a fun way to watch them grow. When they were babies, I have ornaments with their tiny handprints. These Christmas Reindeer have been fun to make as they get older. Using felt or sand paper helps add texture to the little critters too.
The kids love making these every year. Simple pipe cleaners and beads make these a super easy craft to complete. When were were at the Grandparents house one year, the kids nearly covered the tree in these.
Cotton Ball Santa
This is one that I love to make with my younger nieces and nephews. They love working with the glue and cotton balls. We’ve made snow men with the cotton balls too.
