I always enjoy making crafts with my boys but there’s something about Christmas time that makes it a little more special. From snowmen to reindeer, you and your little ones can also create some special memories together making these Easy Christmas Crafts For Kids.
Pom Pom Candy Canes
Pom pom candy canes are so cute and so simple to make. First, trace a candy cane shape onto a piece of cardboard and cut out. Make stripes on the candy cane and color in every other section red. Have your child dip the pom poms in glue and match the red pom poms with the red sections, and the white pom poms in the opposite sections. This craft is a great way to work on matching skills, as well as fine motor skills!
Hand Print Reindeer
This is another really simple Christmas Craft and it also makes a great keepsake! Paint your child’s hand brown and stamp it into white paper. When the paint has dried completely, draw on antlers, hooves, and a red nose with a Sharpie. Add a tiny wiggly eye and your done! You could also add a string to turn this adorable craft into a tree ornament!
Let your child paint a sheet of construction paper white. They can use a paint brush or you could make this a finger painting project! Have your child cut out snowman pieces – arms, nose, buttons, and eyes (or use wiggly eyes). If you’re working with really little ones, cut out these pieces ahead of time. Next, let your child glue the pieces onto their white blob. The end result is a very cute melted snowman!
Toilet Paper Roll Gingerbread Man
To make this gingerbread man, start by gluing brown construction paper around a toilet paper roll. Next, have your child glue on a circle head, two arms, and two legs. Depending on their age, have them cut out red and green circles (or cut these out ahead of time). They can then decorate their gingerbread man with the circles. Draw on a smiley face and add a ribbon on the back to turn this adorable gingerbread man into an ornament.
Finger Print Christmas Lights
These Christmas lights are so cute and my boys loved making them! Simply draw a squiggly line on a piece of white construction paper. Then add your child’s favorite paint colors onto a paper plate. Let your child dip their finger into each of the colors and make little finger prints along the line. I connected my boys’ two papers together and hung them in one of our hallways. They look great!
Cotton Ball Stocking
Here’s another Easy Christmas Craft for little. Cut out a stocking shape from red construction paper and add a cuff cut out from white construction paper. Have your child dip cotton balls in glue and add to the cuff.
To make these fun snowflakes, I let me boys dip Q-tips in glue and place them onto a piece of light blue construction paper. Once the glue dried, I cut around the Q-tips to give them a snowflake look.
Paper Plate Santa
To make this Santa, have your child paint a paper plate peach color. Add a red Santa’s hat. Have your child glue cotton balls onto the plate to make Santa’s beard, and fluff around his hat. Add wiggly eyes, a pink nose, and red lips.
Hand Print Wreath
I LOVE this little hand print wreath so much! To make one of your own, draw a circle onto a large piece of construction paper using a pencil. I traced a plate. Next, paint your child’s hand different shades of green and stamp around the circle. I made my oldest son’s hand prints dark green, and my younger son’s hand prints light green, and just alternated the two. When the paint is dry, erase the pencil marks. Cut around the hand prints, then cut out a bow from red construction paper and glue at the bottom. Add any saying you’d like in the middle. I added “Santa’s Little Helpers” and the boys’ names. I will definitely be pulling this out every year to hang on my wall!
Foot Print and Hand Print Reindeer
I love this Christmas craft! I have my boys make one every single year and I love seeing how much they have grown since the year before. To make these reindeer, paint your child’s foot brown and stamp it onto a piece of paper. Next, paint each hand brown and stamp over the toes to make the reindeer’s antlers. Add wiggly eyes and a nose.
I hope you have fun making these Easy Christmas Crafts For Kids! Please share your littler masterpieces with me! I’d love to see them! Happy Holidays, everyone!
