Holiday Craft Ideas for Kids!

December 17, 2013

The holidays are all about spending time with your loved ones!  Making crafts with your kids is a great way to spend the afternoon building memories, being creative, and having fun.  We’ve rounded up some holiday-themed craft ideas for you and your family to try out this year!

1. Snowman Christmas Balls

How adorable are these Christmas tree ornaments?  All you need are plain Christmas balls, white, orange, and black paint, and some paintbrushes.  Paint your child’s hand white and get them to place their hand on the ball, with fingers spread apart (be sure to keep some wipes on hand!).  Allow paint to dry before painting on the eyes, carrot nose, buttons, and hat of your snowmen.  These ornaments are a great addition for your tree or can be a great personal gift for grandparents!
