Holiday Crafts for Kids

Winter is here! And with it brings our favorite holiday crafts for kids. As you count down to the holidays, here are some very easy and very cute crafts the whole family can make together. We've provided instructions for each, and for more details you can click on the link for each one to go to the original site where we found it.

Cotton Ball Snowmen

Cotton ball snowmen are ideal to make just about any old day. That's because you most likely have all these items on hand: cotton balls, construction paper, glue, and magic markers. That's it! Draw a snowman shape (or download a template from the link) and use that as the guide to glue in cotton balls. You can decorate the snowman with buttons or glitter or cut-out hats or beads, or you can use those magic markers. Easy-peasy.

Candy Cane Chenille Stick Ornaments

These candy cane beaded ornaments look great on gifts, doorknobs, and of course, Christmas trees! Just take a green chenille stick (that's a pipe cleaner, for those of us of a certain age!) and string it with red and white craft beads. This is the ideal size for little hands, since the holes in the beads and the chenille sticks are both nice and big. Crimp the ends so the beads don't fall off and bend the stick into a candy cane shape. Voila!

Hand Print Wreath

This hand print wreath is pretty lovely, don't you think? All you need is green construction paper (two different shades look extra nice), red construction paper, glue, and ribbon. If you'd like a little more stability, cut out a cardboard ring to glue everything onto. Trace your child's hand onto the paper and cut around it. Double up a couple sheets so you only have to make half as many cuts. Then glue the hands overlapping, into a circle. decorate with red holly berry circles, and once it's dry, hang with a pretty ribbon. A lovely gift!

Most of all, have fun with these holiday crafts for kids. They're perfect for long days off from school or evenings when the grownups want to get together and celebrate.
