Christmas Crafts with Kids

4 years ago

I’m not creative when it comes to doing crafts with my son. I need inspiration. After our gingerbread house and gingerbread man decorating this past weekend, I’ve been inspired to at least try more things, especially if I have the items on hand.

I was wrapping presents on Sunday morning and my son was absolutely delighted to play with scraps of wrapping paper and tape. If I had known it was that easy to entertain him with office supplies, I would have started sooner! 

Here’s a few crafty ideas I found online.

1. This may be too difficult to do with him at 2 1/2, but I love this egg snowman. It would make a delightfully delicious appetizer at a holiday party, too. 

2. Make a plate for Santa’s cookies. Ours wouldn’t be as elegant, but I think it’s a great yearly tradition. 

3. Create a gumdrop tree. Easy to do if you have the supplies!

4. My absolute favorite idea, though, is this Christmas tree on canvas made from handprints. My friend K did this with her oldest son and it’s an adorable Christmas decoration.

Do you have favorite Christmas crafts? After having so much fun decorating the gingerbread house, I plan to make it a yearly tradition.
