Our Top 5 Christmas Craft Ideas
Struggling to find things to keep the kids entertained this holiday season? Look no further, we have scoured the internet and compiled a list of our favourite Christmas craft ideas, perfect for little ones.
1. Christmas Biscuits
These Christmas biscuits are a fun and yummy way to teach the kids how to bake and you can customise them to your taste (I added some cinnamon to make them Christmassy). Pick up some seasonal cookie cutters to make the shapes and decorate as desired. For young children prepare the biscuits ahead of time and get the kids to decorate them with Christmas sprinkles and icing.
I tried this at home with my 3-year-old and we must have done a good job, as the biscuits didn't hang around long enough to be decorated!
2. Jazzy Stockings
From jazzing up a blank stocking, updating last year’s or even making your own from scratch, these crafty stocking ideas are perfect for kids of all ages (and even the adults!). You can really let your imagination wild with these stockings.
3. Reindeer food bags
I love these cute reindeer food bags. Super simple and quick to make. Perfect to put out for Rudolf and his friends. If you substitute the glitter for edible glitter you can even have it for breakfast in the morning! The bags can also be used to hold sweets, making them perfect for a last-minute present for classmates.
4. Pom Pom Pinecones
This super simple idea is a great way to get the family involved in decorating the table for Christmas lunch. Using only a few items these pinecones are easy to make and can be made to fit any theme, be it a glitzy theme or something more traditional. All you need are some pom poms, pinecones and PVA glue. simple! You can even add glitter for a sparkly version.
5. Christmas bird feeder
These cute festive bird feeders are a great way to teach children about the importance of nature and helps wildlife during the cold season too! They are easy to make, and you can find the ingredients at your local supermarket. You can then enjoy bird watching from the comfort of your own home.
