Christmas Crafts - Great Fun for the Entire Family!

Christmas Crafts - Great Fun for the Entire Family!

The holiday season is so wonderful because it can bring out the creative side in everyone. There are goodies to bake, items to make, and crafts to design and create. You should start the tradition of making Christmas crafts every season.

Kids really like crafts and creating things with their own hands. By creating a great Christmas craft, using all of their hard work, your children will feel accomplished and proud. They will love the process as well as spending some quality creative time together as a family.

Your first job will be to pick out which craft you want to make. There are many things you could make, from a table decoration to a wall hanging or a tree ornament. A great source of ideas is your child's teacher. They are sure to have lots of wonderful ideas for Christmas crafts.

You'll need to buy all of the materials after you've chosen the Christmas crafts you want to make. If you live near a craft store, you can purchase your supplies there. You can get everything you need online if shopping is inconvenient for you or if you just don't enjoy doing it. You might think about purchasing some miscellaneous materials, like as googly eyes, different colored construction paper, markers, streamers, etc. Look through all of the instructions for the craft you want to create in order to make a good list of what you need to buy.

If you'd like to create a more unique craft, you can try making a walnut shell cradle ornament, a jingle spider, or a sock friend.

Yet another great Christmas craft idea is to design a reindeer mask from construction paper. You will need pieces of dark brown, light brown, and tan paper, a Popsicle stick, a pencil, some glue, and any extra additions you want to add.

  1. Make a tracing of your hand on the construction paper that is dark brown.
  2. Now trace the other hand too.
  3. Cut out both tracings, being careful as these will be the antlers for the reindeer!
  4. Using the light brown or tan paper, cut a head shaped like a teardrop.
  5. Along the bottom of each one of your hand cutouts, place glue in a thin line.
  6. On the back of your cutout that is shaped like a head, glue the antlers on. Let's just be sure to add them where reindeer antlers would normally belong!
  7. Glue two googly eyes onto the face.
  8. Next, take a red pom pom and glue it on as a nose.
  9. Place a mouth or color a mouth onto the Reindeer
  10. Put the Popsicle stick on the bottom of the Rei...

Kids Free Christmas Craft Ideas

Christmas crafts offer endless fun for children at holiday time. Making these fun and simple Santa craft projects can be a way to spend quality time with your children. Choose from our selection of free Christmas craft and decorating ideas.

SANTA PICTURE: If you need a holiday craft idea for your little ones, what better way to begin than with a Santa Claus picture? At Christmas time there are a ton of coloring books featuring Santa. Choose a picture from a book. Cut out the picture of Santa and place it in the center of a sheet of white construction paper. Adhere the picture of Santa to the paper using a glue stick.

Using colored markers, color in the picture. Santa's beard and the top of his red hat can have cotton balls added. To make eyes for Santa use some black buttons and for his nose, use a red button. Draw a background of Christmas motifs such as candy canes or trees around Santa.

When you have finished, your children can print their names underneath Santa. Mount their pictures onto a sheet of heavy cardboard and glue them in place. Place the picture into a frame for protection. Then you can proudly display your child's artistic talents in your house.

SANTA CHRISTMAS CARDS: Santa Claus Christmas cards are another fun craft for your children to make. Acquire a sheet of thick white paper and trim it to a 5"x7" rectangle. Fold it in half, either lengthwise or crosswise. It's time to get creative! Put photographs of Santa that your children can replicate onto the cover. Let them express their creativity using crayons or markers.

Once they have finished the outside, open the card and let them print Christmas greetings on the inside page. Handmade Christmas cards give pleasure at home or when sent to friends and family. Should you have a variety of projects on the go, ensure that this is added to your Christmas craft per day calendar.

MAKE A SANTA PLATE DECORATION FOR YOUR CHRISTMAS TREE: The materials you will need for your Santa plate are crayons, markers, cotton balls, a large paper plate, and colored glitter. Trace or draw Santa (but without his hat) onto the paper plate. With glue, affix the cotton balls onto his beard. For a creative 3-D touch, stick several cotton balls together in a V shape to make Santa's beard, but attach it only at the ends so that it hangs from the plate.

Another location for cotton ball usage is for Santa's hair. Using red food coloring or a red marker, dye the ...
