10 Fun and Festive Christmas Crafts for Kids

The holiday season is a magical time for children, filled with joy, wonder, and creativity. At Whiz Kidz St Albans, we love to celebrate Christmas with fun and festive crafts that bring out the creative spirit in our little ones. Here are ten of St Albans Whiz Kidz favourite Christmas crafts that your child can enjoy:

Handprint Reindeer

Create adorable reindeer using your child’s handprint as the antlers and a thumbprint as the nose. Add googly eyes and a red pom-pom for Rudolph’s famous red nose.

Pinecone Christmas Trees

Collect pinecones and let your child paint them green. Once dry, decorate them with sequins, beads, and small ornaments to create beautiful Christmas trees.

Paper Plate Santa Claus

Use a paper plate as the base for Santa’s face. Let your child paint it, then add cotton balls for his beard and hat trim and draw on eyes and a nose.

Fingerprint Christmas Lights

Dip your child’s fingers in different coloured paints and let them create a string of Christmas lights on paper. Add a black marker to draw the string and sockets.

Salt Dough Ornaments

Make salt dough by mixing flour, salt, and water. Roll it out and use cookie cutters to create Christmas shapes. Once baked, let your child paint, and decorate the ornaments.

Handprint Wreath

Trace your child’s handprints on green paper and cut them out. Glue them in a circle to create a wreath, then add a bow and decorations.

Candy Cane Reindeer

Glue googly eyes and a red pom-pom onto a candy cane to create a cute reindeer. Add small twigs for antlers.

Christmas Card Collage

Collect old Christmas cards and let your child cut out shapes and images to create a collage. This is a great way to recycle old cards and create new art.

Pasta Christmas Ornaments

Paint different types of pasta shapes and string them together to create colourful Christmas ornaments. Add glitter for extra sparkle.

Gingerbread Man Garland

Cut out gingerbread man shapes from brown construction paper. Let your child decorate them with markers, stickers, and glitter, then string them together to create a festive garland.

These Christmas crafts are not only fun and festive but also help develop fine motor skills, creativity, and a sense of accomplishment in your child. We at St Albans Whiz Kidz hope you enjoy creating these crafts with your little ones and wish you a merry and bright Christmas season!
