The holidays are all about together, happiness, and love. And who better than to celebrate with but the kids! This year, let the little ones do some decorating and have fun creating these 4 Creative Holiday Crafts For Kids!
Meet the Dubiens decided to share their family by putting together this wonderful homemade thumbprint card! This is so simple to make, and you’ll only need a handful of items to create a great reindeer.
- washable brown paint
- whatever you’d like to use to make your reindeer’s eyes and nose (they used googly eyes and colored felt)
The great thing about this wonderful holiday craft is that you and your kids can both join in on the fun! Plus, you can make other thumbprint characters as well – think Santa, snowman, or even a Christmas elf!
We all know that little kids love saying, writing, and spelling their names. This craft from Running Rachel takes this to a new level! Do you have some leftover paper plates? Perfect! You’ll only need a few more items to make this great, handmade art project!
- paper plates markers
- poster board letters (or your kids can write the letters themselves)
- ribbon, construction paper or felt for the snowman’s hat and scarf
- wiggly eyes (or they can be drawn on if you’d like)
After attaching or drawing on one letter per plate, the kids can attach them, one atop the other, building their snowmen! At the end, they can be dressed and decorated to your child’s liking.
With Kwanzaa lasting from December 26th to January 1st, you have an entire week to celebrate! Check out this wonderful Kinara craft displayed in Highlights kids!
- paper plate hole punch
- 7 popsicle sticks
- tissue paper
After creating the base of the Kinara with the paper plate, you will make your candles from the popsicle sticks and their flames from the tissue paper. This Kwanzaa, your Kinara will be burning bright…and will have been so easy to make!
Kid Art Luminaria
Do you remember telling your kids not to draw on your dishes? Well, now they (sort of) can! Check out Aunt Peaches‘ wonderful way for kids to express their creativity while helping decorate this holiday season!
*Although she advertises them as a Thanksgiving craft, this fun luminaria art can be used all year-round!
- any empty glass wear/mason jars
- paper markers/crayons
- twine/rubber bands
Once your child has decorated his/her piece of paper, you’ll cut it out so it is the same height as the glass/jar. Then you can tie the twine or put the band around the glass, and place a candle inside. Voila! Your kids’ art will be displayed and they will be so excited to show off their drawings!
So pull out your crayons, grab your glue stick, and get your kids ready for an afternoon of holiday crafting fun!
