Christmas crafts

Christmas crafts are a great way to entertain your children during the Christmas season. You can use these crafts to make decorations, as well as create some pretty nice gifts to give to family and friends. What you make is only limited by your imagination, and your children will enjoy it too.

Here are some ideas for some Christmas crafts you can make with your children. You can get many of your supplies at dollar stores, saving you a lot of time and money in assembling what you need to get the job done.

Christmas Cards

This is by far the easiest item to make. All you need is some paper or some type of cardboard, and some crayons, paints, or other craft items to decorate. This will give your children an opportunity to let their imaginations run wild.

You can find some pretty cool stuff to decorate with, so you can make this a project that lasts for a few hours or even a few days. Children can also use their pictures of themselves to decorate the card, making this a present Grandma and Grandpa will definitely love.

It’s also the least expensive of all the crafts you can do, so you can save a lot of money with this fun project.


Wreaths are really easy to make, and they’re a lot of fun too. You can decorate them in many different ways and use them both inside and outside the house.

They’re also a great way to bring Christmas cheer to others because you can take them and give them away in places like nursing homes or veterans’ hospitals where a lot of people might not get visitors. Ask your children if they would like to do this because Christmas is a time of year that charitable acts are not only appreciated but encouraged.

You can have fun with your children while teaching them how to be charitable too.

Advanced Crafts

Crochet is a simple way to make beautiful and inexpensive Christmas ornaments to share and give away. It’s also a great learning experience for children because it requires good hand/eye coordination.

Children may even want to consider using these crafts to sell. Sites like Etsy allow you to sell your handmade items, so it’s a great way for your children to make money over the holidays if that’s what they want to do. Consider this project as a great gift too because it means a one of a kind decoration that could last a lifetime.
