Christmas Crafts With Your Kids Can Teach Them About Christmas
Kids Christmas Craft Ideas
By Caroline Bourke
Christmas is a wonderful time of year to indulge in a bit of "hands-on" action with your kids, whether it is baking cookies, trimming the tree or creating kids Christmas crafts for the home or gifts. Arts and crafts are a wonderful way to teach children about creativity and the spirit of giving, and it can be lots of fun to do together.
The key in successful Christmas crafts is to give yourself enough time to complete them and to make sure that you have all of the necessary supplies before you begin. This way, you and your kids can get messy and crafty to your hearts' content!
One of the favorite types of kids Christmas crafts for families is creating handmade ornaments for the tree. One reason that this type of craft is so popular is because there is a plethora of possibilities. You can make reindeer out of candy canes, wreaths out of Fruit Loops or simply purchase an ornament kit from your local craft store and follow the instructions inside.There are numerous books and websites that you can research to get ideas for your Christmas crafts or you can make it easy on yourself and recreate some of the masterpieces that you made as a child.
Every holiday table needs plenty of embellishment, and Christmas crafts can fit the bill here as well. You can make napkin rings out of felt and baubles, or a candle holder by decorating baby food jars with paint and glitter. For older children who can use tools like glue guns, you can make candle rings out of a wire form that you glue pine cones and greens to. Or you can try your hand and a festive centerpiece with silk flowers, greenery and candy canes. For an easy Christmas craft, you can make a vase out of an old can and candy canes, by gluing the sticks all the way around the outside of the can. Fill with pine boughs or fresh flowers, and you have a festive focal point for any holiday table.
Take your love of Christmas baking a step further by creating edible Christmas crafts with your family. Gingerbread and sugar cookies can make wonderful tree ornaments, as long as you poke a hole in the top of the cookie before it is baked.Or you can decorate a gingerbread house together that will adorn your holiday buffet table.
And if you are looking for gifts in the form of Christmas crafts, let your kids help you create trail mix, cookies or Christmas candies, and find a creative way to package them for your neighbors. You are guaranteed to be the most popular house on the block when your goodies are delivered!
Christmas is the perfect time to put your heads together and get creative as a family. Who knows? traditional crafts may become the most popular tradition of the season.
