For all you parents out there who have heard “Is it Christmas yet?” too many times to count, here is OUR Christmas gift to you: A bunch of easy Christmas crafts to keep your little ones occupied until Santa comes shimmying down the chimney!
With a whole week off of school, plus all that extra sugar from Christmas cookies, we know that kids are probably going to be bouncing off the walls with excitement all the way up until the 25th. That’s why we decided to seek out the best kid-friendly craft projects to keep them occupied while waiting for the much-anticipated Big Day.
From simple ornament crafts to Santa and reindeer-themed decorations and a whole lot more, there are a bunch of easy projects that kids will love to make! We can say that with confidence because all of these simple Christmas crafts for kids come from bloggers who have their own children, so that means these crafts are tried and true crowd pleasers, and for kids of all ages too!
I love that kids get to get a bit messy with this craft, but not so messy that you’ll be regretting this idea come cleanup time. Plus kids will love decorating their “trees” with fun embellishments (i.e. whatever you can find around the house). Buttons look adorable, but I’m sure you can find a bunch of other cute things to glue onto your trees! I also love the idea of having each of your kids paint their hands a different shade of green so that when you’re done, your tree will be pretty and multi-colored, and each kid can see their imprint (literally) on the tree! So clever!
There are so many more fun ideas in this collection of 21 Simple Christmas Crafts for Kids, but I don’t have time to tell you about them all because I need to go do some last-minute gift crafting … not to mention wrapping! So simply click over to the collection page to see all of the fun kid-friendly projects for yourself! And don’t forget to tell us which ones you decide to make with your family… we’d love to hear about your creations!
Oh, and one last thing! We’ve also created a handy-dandy free eBook with some easy kids’ Christmas crafts that you can print out and take with you if you’re traveling this holiday season. The eBook is available for free download here. You’ll be happy you printed it out when you’re at your relatives’ house and the kids are itching for something fun to do!
Hope you and your little ones have a very merry Christmas full of lots of creativity!
