Easy Christmas Crafts for Kids…festive ideas to help bring the holiday cheer into your home this season. Simple instructions perfect for little hands.
Kids Christmas Crafts
The holidays have got to be the best time of the year! There’s an added sense of excitement in the air and everyone seems to have a smile on their face. My favorite holiday traditions growing up were the endless crafts my mom always seemed to have ready for us. One craft in particular involved painting our very own clear bulbs and filling them with confetti. It was so much fun getting together as a family and creating something spectacular.
Christmas crafts come in all shapes and sizes. Some may involve careful steps while others may only consist of decorating a piece of paper. Regardless of which craft you do, the best crafts are done together as a family and involve many fun and unifying conversations. Below I composed a list of my favorite festive kids’ crafts. These are not difficult and require little preparation, making them a perfect addition to your holiday.
Paper Plate Santa
Paper plate Santa is a classic Christmas craft never disappoints. It is inexpensive, fun, and only requires a plate, paint, and cotton balls.
