This year my children and I counted down to Christmas by creating a different 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:
- Not too messy or time consuming
- Require only normal house hold items (also it cannot be expensive)
- 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.
I wanted to try as often as possible to point my children back to the real meaning of Christmas, which is the birth of Jesus, our Savior. While some of these crafts might be a bit of a stretch looking for something meaningful, there is also nothing wrong with just making a really fun craft!
Click on the title of each craft for supplies, instructions, and how to make each craft meaningful!
Most of all, remember that you are spending quality time with your children while they are little. Also, they will probably remember sharing these moments with you for years to come.
I hope that you and your children selecting some ideas from our Christmas Crafts Roundup!
