I love making Christmas crafts with my kids every Christmas.

It has become a tradition that my kids love to this day (and they are all teenagers!).

How about making some awesome Christmas crafts while bonding with your children this holiday season. 

Bee Hives of Activity


Have you ever noticed that children are little bee hives of activity? They are always buzzing from one thing to another, never staying at one task for too long?

Video Game Controller

Have you ever watched the video games they play? They have cool graphics and sounds, the scenery is always changing, the characters can be changed, and the outcomes for each level are often different.

All these changes and differences keep their attention. Kids don't get bored because they never know what is going to happen next.

Kids Christmas crafts are never going to be like video games but kids can still enjoy making them.  You just have to know the secret to keeping their attention while they are making crafts.  Are you curious to learn what the secret is?

The secret to finding creative kids Christmas crafts is:

  • to find crafts that are not too difficult. If the craft is too difficult kids can get frustrated and discouraged.
  • The crafts must also be quick to make. Our little bees are not going to sit in one place doing the same thing for too long.

Benefits of Craft

Creative kids crafts are very important because:

  •  They help kids develop their dexterity.
  •   Crafts bring them a sense of pride and accomplishment when they see what they have made.

Children are proud of their artistic creations and they love to show them off. In fact, I'm sure many of you have your child's art masterpieces posted on your fridge for everyone to see.

Bored Child

Christmas crafts have many good benefits for kids but they can also benefit you, Mom.

"Mom, I'm bored!" How many of you have ever heard this popular statement? I'm guessing probably all of you.

  • Kids Christmas crafts is an awesome way to keep your children busy and happy for a little while.

I would suggest that you buy a small bin and fill it with some craft supplies like:

blue jewelery box
  • construction paper
  • glue
  • markers or crayons
  • safety scissors
  • empty toilet paper rolls
  • stickers

or anything else you can think of.

That way you will always have this handy little bin to pull out when you need to find something for your kids to do. I have one and it has been used and replenished many times over the years.

An added noted, these bins can come in very handy when your children get older and have projects to do for school.

Craft Ideas for Christmas

Kids are people too (do you remember that TV show?) and they like making different kinds of Christmas decorations that can be displayed for everyone to see.

They also like making gifts to give to loved ones at Christmas time so they need a lot of different craft ideas to choose from and that is exactly what you'll find here.  So without further ado, let's take at look at some easy kids Christmas crafts right now...

Paper offers you the chance to let your imagination and creativity run wild because it is so versatile.  It is also easy to work with and it is a material that can easily be found in stores.

This year recycle stuff found around your home and use it to make festive recycled craft projects with your kids.

kids recycle projects

Teach your children all about recycling while creating some jolly artwork with them.  Take this opportunity to show your children how to turn trash to treasure by taking some everyday household items and getting creative.

You are never too young to learn how to reuse things instead of just throwing them away. There is no better way to show kids this than through some fun activities.

Kids Christmas Crafts with Felt/Foam

* If you see a craft you would like to try, click on its picture and you'll be taken to a step-by-step tutorial that will show you how to make it.

Felt is a type of non-woven cloth that can be soft, rough, any shape or size, and any color of the rainbow. 

It is easy to work with and inexpensive to buy.  And it is the perfect material for making kids Christmas crafts.

Craft foam is a porous foam and is similar to felt in many ways.  It comes in many colors, is easy to work with and also inexpensive to buy.  If there is a craft that requires felt and you don't have any, then don't worry.  You can substitute the felt with craft foam.  And it works the other way as well - if you don't have craft foam you can substitute it with felt.

You don't have to be a master craftsman to work with wood.  In fact, children are capable of making beautiful crafts using wood.

Imagine using popsicle sticks, clothes pins, wooden spoons, or scrap lumber. We are surrounded by wood every day and there are lots of ways kids can use this wood to make festive holiday crafts.

No safety goggles or saws will be needed to make these crafts either.  The safety of our children is most important.

And here's a shout out to all those teachers out there. Are you doing a science unit on wood or everyday objects?  You could easily incorporate these craft ideas into your lesson plans.

"Wooden" it be nice if I could only whistle!  (sorry, I had to throw that play on words in).

I hope you have fun embracing the child-like glee of the holiday season with your children.  It is the stuff that memories are made of.  And remember to take pictures so you can document these great times! 

Making crafts is lots of fun,

keeps you out of trouble too.

Naughty means gifts for none,

while nice brings gifts to you.
