12 Days of Christmas Crafts for Kids–Day 7

Christmas Craft Day 7! That means only 6 days until Christmas! 

This year we are counting down to Christmas by creating a new Christmas craft each day! Now don’t panic and get overwhelmed on me! I tried to keep it simple!   

All of these Christmas crafts are geared toward younger kids. My 6 year old and 3 year old LOVED these! 

In order for a craft to make this list it had to meet several criteria: 

  1. FUN
  2. Easy!
  3. Not too messy or time consuming 
  4. Require only normal house hold items (also it cannot be expensive)
  5. Is not food (Christmas food is great! I just didn’t want to cook desserts/junk food 12 days in a row) 

I did not list any age requirements or which steps parent should help with. I left that for each parent to decided based on their own children and their ages. 

Day 7:

Make Christmas Cards

Today we are keeping it simple! Kids (at least my kids) LOVE making cards!

Supplies:

  • Construction Paper
  • Markers, crayons, colored pencils, paint, etc. 
  • Glitter, stickers, pipe cleaners, other things for decorations
  • Pictures of your family and children (optional) 
  • Cotton balls
  • Glue
  • Scissors

Directions:

  • Give your children the supplies and let them have at it!

Okay, so my directions aren’t all that detailed! In my home if I try to micromanage the making of a card for someone my kids are not going to be happy! I just let them be independent in this field and help spell any words for their Christmas message.

Make it meaningful: Let your kids give their cards to family members or take your kids to a nursing home to pass out their homemade cards. Talk to them about spreading joy to others.
