Christmas means the kids are home from school and antsy to keep busy, and there’s no better way than to keep the little ones occupied than to make some fun Christmas arts and crafts!
Crafting with your kids helps get their creative juices flowing, and also gives you time to be in the moment and discover along with them! Here are some fun Christmas projects I’ve rounded up for you which will also look great around your home.
Pinecone Ornaments. Have your kids help make more ornaments for the tree with this idea from Mom Spotted. They’re so simple that even toddlers can do them with some help, and you can use some glitter to make your collected pinecones sparkly and festive!
Cinnamon Applesauce Heart Ornaments. This fun idea from Katy Elliott is a great way to combine baking and crafts with your little ones! But be warned- the hearts are not edible!
Toilet Roll Santas. A clever idea from Holiday Kids Craft that uses supplies you probably already have around the house to create adorable mini Santas- perfect for your Christmas décor.
Paper Christmas Trees. This easy idea from Parties And Holidays gets kids to make their own little paper trees out of Greek card stock and then decorate them with markers, glitter, and stickers.
Christmas Candy Trains. This fun idea from Tide Buy is as easy as gluing candy on a cylinder! Kids will love creating these adorable choo choo trains almost as much as they’ll love eating all the candy afterwards.
Rudolph Ruler. I love this clever idea from Megpie Designs for using a ruler to make Santa’s favorite reindeer!
DIY Gingerbread House. The ultimate Christmas craft idea! Go big and make your own gingerbread house this year using this step by step guide from We Love Being Moms. If you want to take the easy way out, go to your local grocery store or Target, buy a kit, and construct from there!
Candy Cane Christmas Art. Here’s a tasty craft idea from Donna’s Crafty Creations that explains how to shape candy canes like hearts and then fill them with melted chocolates and sprinkles! The only thing better than crafting is being able to eat your craft after!
DIY Snow Globes. This gorgeous idea from Amanda Jane Brown shows you how to make your very own snow globes! Parents will have to lend a helping hand and supervise this one, but it is a beautiful Christmas craft idea would be perfect to give as gifts or set out on display when you’re finished!
Christmas Tealight Holders. This genius idea from One Perfect Day uses clean baby food jars to create one of a kind tea light holders perfect for the holiday season! This craft is for the older kids but little ones can still help out!
