12 Days of Christmas Crafts for Kids–Day 10

Christmas Craft Day 10! That means only 3 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 10: Sock Rice Snowman

Supplies:

  • Sock (I got a new sock from the dollar store) 
  • About 1 cup of rice
  • Paint, buttons, or needle and thread
  • Rubber bands
  • Ribbon or scrape of cloth

Directions: 

  • Pour the rice into the sock (a funnel might be helpful)
  • Use a rubber band to divide the rice section in half. Tie a ribbon around this rubber band.
  • Use another rubber band to secure the top of the sock so no rice will come out.
  • Fold the remaining sock over on itself (inside out) to form the hat and also cover the top rubber band.
  • Make the snowman’s face and buttons by painting them on, embroidering, or gluing or sewing on buttons.  

Make it meaningful: Talk about how you filled your snowman with rice, which makes the snowman strong and gave it shape. Talk about what we put inside of us– what we consume (media, God’s Word, etc.) is what will influence and “shape” us.
