12 Days of Christmas Crafts for Kids–Day 9

Thanks for sharing!

Christmas Craft Day 9! That means only 4 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!   

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 9: Hanging Paper Ornaments

These could easily be made for your Christmas tree, but we made ours for our dining room light fixture. These were so simple but they look so pretty!

Directions: 

  • Cut 5 strips of construction paper. One short strip, two medium length, and two long.
  • Line up all the ends and staple together.
  • Line all the opposite ends and staple together– the medium and long strips will bend outwards and the short strip will stay straight.
