Christmas is just days away, but the school holiday break is just beginning. If you’re looking for some fun crafts to keep you and your little ones entertained over the Christmas vacation, check out these fun ideas we found below.
Hand print Christmas Trees = We made these in the 60′s! Easy and fun and the best part is decorating them!
Sponge Painted Holiday Decor – this is on paper, but get a white table cloth and decorate it for the kids’ table!
Cheap foam “trees,” yarn, and decorations make these fun decorations! To skip the hot glue for the little ones, get ornaments with a loop and put them through the yarn before wrapping tightly to hold them in place.
Gingerbread tree ornaments – kids can help with the mixing, rolling and cutting out. Put a hole in before baking and tie with ribbon or fabric. Mmmm….smells divine!
I made these back in the day with my kids! Use cookie cutters to cut cardboard shapes (cereal boxes work well). Give them glue & pompom (glitter, too!) and when they’re finished add a look and/or ribbon and hang.
Draw a design on brown paper bags and let your little one color it in – punch holes, put your gift inside, tie a bow and give! So cute!
Visions of sugarplums Simple shapes (use cookie cutters!) and glue for the very young and ages 10+ can learn an easy blanket stitch. So cute!
Free printable and downloadable pattern. The garland is super easy to put together and can be as long as you like. Or add a yarn loop and make them into ornaments! Let very young ones use glue and glitter to decorate.
