Christmas is totally a time for crafting with the kids and it will be even more so this year, when it looks like we maybe stuck at home that little bit longer! It’s almost like needing ideas for being stuck at home again isn’t it. Ah the joys of lockdowns. I always wish I did a little more crafts with the girls. Especially Christmas crafts. When I used to scrapbook (which I haven’t done in probably well over a year now), I was really creative and used to do loads of pages. My eldest is really into crafting now and loves easy Christmas crafts. She just gets so excited.
You may like our post creating an Alternative Advent Calendar from last year. It was great fun to do some crafting and fab to do something different compared to a chocolate calendar.
I decided I needed some more inspiration for some easy Christmas craft ideas and I asked my fellow bloggers for some ideas and this is what they came up with for me.
Easy Christmas Crafts for Kids
1 – Potato Print Snowmen
This lovely activity from Jenny at The Gingerbread House. Simple and easy to make this lovely creation; all you need is potatoes, a cookie cutter, white paint and a pack of Bostik Glitter Pens. Enjoy!
This would be so easy to do with very young children. They love a bit of paint and mess. I think my 18 month old would be jumping for joy!

This gorgeous creation from Chloe at Life Unexpected.
There is a step-by-step guide on how to make this beautiful creation for your little ones. Not only does it look stunning but it is really easy to create.
3 – DIY Christmas Tree Ornaments
These amazing Christmas tree ornaments were crafted by the clever Danielle at Someone’s Mum. They look so festive and use crafts twigs and buttons as the main equipment.
These will definitely bring some originality to your Christmas tree.

My eldest was full of the Nativity story last year after her first year at school and know she would love this activity designed by Louise at Little Hearts, Big Love.
It is something you and your little ones can do together and the result is something you can treasure for many Christmas’ to come.
