There’s something about Christmas that makes us all kids at heart. I know that I, for one, get giddy at the sight of Christmas lights, I can’t resist singing along to Christmas carols when they come on the radio, and I’ve even been known to take a picture with Santa at the mall (as an adult). The holidays seem to have this magical power to make us feel carefree for several weeks, no matter what other craziness we have going on in our lives. Christmas is a time to slow down, relax and enjoy being with loved ones.
With that in mind, the editors over at AllFreeHolidayCrafts decided to put together a collection of kid-friendly Christmas crafts that will help get the whole family in the Christmas spirit! From ornaments to decorations to snowman crafts, there are a ton of ideas for your little ones to choose from in this free eBook. Download your copy today and store it away for a day when the kids are bored and complaining about being stuck indoors; these crafts are the perfect snow day activities. Plus, if you get your kids crafting, that means they’ll be spending less time in front of the TV which is always good news!
Want a sneak peak at what’s inside the eBook? Here are some of my favorite projects from the collection of 8 Simple Christmas Crafts for Kids:
Turn a pair of old socks into one of the cutest Christmas tree decorations ever with the Sock it to Me Snowman Ornament project! I love the snowman’s little hat and the overall soft and cheerful look of this adorable ornament. Kids will get a kick out of cutting up their socks and hanging them on the tree. To find the step-by-step instructions, head to page 7 of the eBook!
Who wouldn’t love the idea of un-meltable snowmen? When it’s too cold and nasty to go outside and make a real snowman, gather the kids inside and make these fun and fluffy No-Melt Snowmen. They’re super easy to create and kids can choose their own design for the hat and scarf. This is a great project for young kids because there’s minimal cutting and no specific pattern to follow. So let them get creative (and a bit messy) making their very own mini snowmen! The instructions are on page 13 of the eBook.
There are several reasons why we like this Recycled Bottle Top Xmas Tree craft so much. First, and probably most important, is because you probably already have all of the necessary supplies on hand. We know that parents are busy and don’t necessarily have time to head to the craft store for materials, so this project is perfect. Just round up some buttons or other shiny nick-knacks and use those to fill the bottle tops. The second reason we love this craft is that you can make it into whatever you want… a card, an ornament, or just a fun decoration for the wall. Find more details about this cool and creative project on page 5 of the eBook.
That’s just a sneak peak of what’s inside this holiday eBook. Make sure you download your copy (for FREE!) today so you’ll have it on-hand for when the kids start their Christmas break!
