Christmas season is in full swing! We put together a list of 10 kid friendly Christmas activities to make it extra magical. They can all easily be done with just your kiddos or make a little party out of it and invite some of their friends!
5 Kid Friendly Christmas Crafts
#1: Reindeer Food– Santa’s reindeer get very hungry during their travels on Christmas Eve. Let your kids make reindeer food for them, and an extra bag they can enjoy themselves. All you need is a variety of about 7-10 snacks. Pour them into separate bowls, set them on the table, give each kid a few baggies, and let them fill them up with a variety of treats. Tip: Go ahead and premake some labels that say reindeer food on them and place them on the bags!
#2: Pinecone Trees – If you live where pinecones are on the ground, go ahead and gather some, if not then you can go to any crafting store and buy a bag of them. You will also need little pots the pine cone fits in, paint, stickers, glue, glitter, pompoms, and anything else you would like to use to decorate with. Let the kids decorate the pot, then you will need to hot glue the pinecone into the pot, then let the kids decorate the tree (pinecone).
#3: Christmas Sugar Cookies – This one can easily be done in two ways. You can include the kids in the whole experience, making the dough, using cookie cutters to shape it, then decorate them. Or feel free to knock out the first half and bake the cookies on your own, then put all the frosting, sprinkles, and goodies on the table and simply let them do the decorating!
#4: Christmas Wreaths– Here’s an adorable yet simple one that even toddlers can do. Take a paper plate and cut the center out, you are going to use the outside ring. Tip: cut the plates prior to the activity. For the actual activity, you will need the wreaths (the outside rings you made), glue, glitter, pompoms, stickers, green paint or colors, and string. Let the kids paint or color the wreaths green, then decorate them. When they are all done, you will tie some string to the top so it can be hung!
#5: Christmas Cards–This activity is perfect to send to grandparents! You will need red and green construction paper, colors, glitter, glue, stickers, and anything else you would like to decorate with! Then you can help your kiddo trace their hand and name into the card. After that let them decorate it! Tip: you can use their hand as a Christmas tree! Once it’s decorated send it off to the grandparents (or anyone else that would love a card from your little one).
