Tired of making paper snow flakes? Check out this collection of Christmas Crafts for Kids. Crafts can be a fun project to do as a family but can also in some cases make really cute gifts. Some are great to do during a classroom parties also. Some crafts can become items your child wants to play with over and over again. There are so many ideas available, but here are a few of my favorites.
This craft will get played with again and again. These little felt dress up gingerbread people are sooo cute. You can make a little boy or a little girl gingerbread. Make multiple outfits to dress and redress them up. How adorable!
These upcycled water bottle snowmen are so cute and very easy to make. Kids will love stuffing the water bottles full of cotton balls and then decorating their snowman without freezing outside. :)
This Felt Christmas Tree is a craft that can be made once but played with over and over again. Let the kids help design their own ornaments out of felt and decorate and redecorate the tree however they want.
Here is a great craft that will let you use stuff you already have around the house. The recycled paper Christmas Tree is great for kids of all ages. Younger ones may need help cutting the paper and using the glue, but they will all have fun making these trees.
Who doesn’t love a cotton ball snowman! An easy project for most age groups. Let your children get creative and “dress” their snowman however they want and also add in some scenery.
A curly twist on the jolly man’s beard using curled paper. This Santa is just cute. Another craft good for kids most ages with the younger ones needing a little help. But all kids will enjoy making Santa’s beard curly!
This styrafoam snowman is sure to find a place among your holiday decorations for years to come. Your kids will be so proud each year when you pull it out of your box of decorations and give a special spot for all to see.
This time the jolly man has a beard of cotton balls. There is just something about gluing cotton balls to a piece of paper that kids just love. And this work of art will find a nice place hanging on your fridge for the remainder of the holiday season.
These “Sock Snow Dudes” are so cute and very easy to make. Most of the items used to make them you probably already have lying around your house. Great for a classroom project or to make at a holiday party. Or your kids can just make an entire snow dude family.
If your kids love watching the snow fall, let them make something that will allow them to see it even inside. This snow globe is so easy to make. Great for preschoolers and a good way to get rid of a few of those baby jars you’ve been saving.
Here is a great craft for the kids that is also very very yummy to eat when you are done. Using a waffle cone upside down, let the kids decorate it with frosting and then stick on the holiday colored M&Ms. Yum!
