Fun Christmas Kids Activities for a Festive Season

Prepare Your Christmas Greetings

Using simple things that you already have in your house, the kids can make some great Christmas Greeting cards to send to the ones far away. Pieces of fabric and buttons, cords and ribbons, glitter, glue and painting supplies, even muffin cups can be put to use for these simple crafts. Let the kids create their own winter scape, snow men and Christmas trees the way they want.

Make Easy “Gingerbread” Houses

To make these is such fun. And they are so easy to make. Everyone can help, and if you wrap them with some clear cellophane wrap and tie it with a beautiful ribbon, they will make a great edible gift.

To make these, you will need graham crackers, frosting to use as glue (either from the store or make your own) and lots and lots of candy to decorate. Also, use a rectangle shaped cardboard to use as a base on which you will glue the base first graham cracker.

Christmas Cookies Decorating: A Holiday Classic

There is a reason that baking and decorating cookies in the Christmas Season is a classic. They can be delicious and so cute looking. They can be used as ornaments and decoration, gift tags, treats, presents, and even as a Centerpiece on a table. With your favorite seasonal cookie cutters and some simple decoration supplies, your kids can create their own little pieces of art. And have a great time doing it!

Make Crafty Snowmen

Using everyday items like buttons, corks, clay or round cut cardboard and felt, create some imaginative cute snow men that won’t melt away. You can use any round objects that you can find and that can be painted white. For the decorations use felt or other fabric you can find at home.

A cute idea is to create snow men out of white socks. Cut the top of the socks and set it the foot part aside. Tie the one end of the sock leg and fill it with rice. With a rubber band create the body and the head of the snow men. Now, tie the upper end up. Decorate the snowmen with pins, buttons, fabric, or felt. At the end, use the top of the sock you put aside to make the hat and the cute fellow is ready to play, decorate or give away.
