Christmas is a lovely time to get crafty with the kids. There are so many fun and creative craft ideas for you and your little one to enjoy, and the best thing about it is that you can make most of the crafts out of household items! After searching for DIY Christmas craft ideas, we’ve rounded up our favourites to share with you…
All you need to create adorable festive artwork just like this, is a pair of little hands and some paint. Not only is this a fun activity for you and your child to enjoy together, you could always give your creations away as a lovely Christmas gift – we’re pretty sure Grandparents would love it.
To create some pretty paper snowflakes, you will need a piece of paper and some scissors – simple! You can fold the paper as many times as you like – once folded, you must cut away shapes along the edges, then you should carefully unfold the paper to reveal your snowflake! If you want to make them extra special, you can cover with glue and sprinkle with a little fairy dust (aka glitter!).
Sequin ornaments are so fun and easy to make. The perfect craft to enjoy with toddlers, as you can include lots of colour to keep children engaged and excited. Cut out different ornament shapes, add some glue all over and cover with sequins and sparkle!
Who would have thought a potato could make such beautiful Christmas designs? You must start by cutting your potatoes in half and carving out designs in it, and then ask your child to paint on their favourite festive colours and then stamp on to a piece of paper. To make them look extra Christmassy, take a black marker and draw around each shape with a black marker, and cut pieces of pipe cleaner, twist at the bottom and stick down to make it look like the string of a Christmas bauble.
Get in the holiday spirit with some melt-free snowmen! You can create a snowman paperchain in just 4 simple steps! Firstly, cut snowman shapes out of your paper or felt, decorate each snowman with a top hat, punch a hole each side of the snowman and finally, string with baker’s twine.
