Easy Kids Christmas Craft

Quick, Easy and fabulous crafts to do with the kids this Christmas.

Cute Reindeer's

These cute little Reindeer's can be made to hang as ornaments from your Christmas tree, stuck up on the wall with some blue tack to create a little reindeer family OR stuck onto wrapped Christmas presents as a nice extra decoration.

Popsicle Stick Reindeer Christmas Craft for Preschoolers 
For each reindeer you’ll need:

  • 3 x pop sticks (plain, coloured, short, long – any kind you like!) 
  • 2 x googly eyes 
  • 1 x small pompom ball 
  • 1 x pipe cleaner 
  • craft glue 

How to:
1. Glue two pop sticks together to make a ‘V’ shape. 
2. Glue the googly eyes half way up each pop stick. 
3. Curl the pipe cleaner around and around the centre of the third pop stick then bend the two ends of the pip cleaner to look like antlers. 
4. Glue the third piece on, placing it above the eyes. 
5. Glue the pompom ball to the bottom of the V to make a nose and leave it all to dry.  

 

 

I showed Miss Two how to make the first reindeer, and then let her glue and stick all the other reindeer's together (with my guidance). She loved picking her own colours and being in charge of creating her reindeer's.
While she was busy picking and gluing the eyes on, I made the antlers as they were a little too difficult.

Tips: You can glue the pop sticks in advance if you have young children or if you’re unable to leave them in their position to dry. 

 

 

 

Christmas Wands

These wands are the perfect accessory for your little ones Christmas costume, as the star on the top of your Christmas tree OR the kids can play with them as a magic Christmas wand.

Toddler Christmas Craft Wands

For each wand you’ll need:

  • 1 x polystyrene foam star (I got a mixed pack of 6 from Kmart for $3)
  • 1 x stick
  • ribbon/s
  • red paint
  • glitter

How to:

1. Poke a hole in the foam star with the stick.

2. Put a bit of glue on the hole. Position your ribbon over the tip of the stick and push it back into the same hole.    This is to keep the stick stable and secure the ribbon.

3. Let your child paint the star all over, turning it over to paint both sides.

4. Give them some glitter to sprinkle over their freshly painted star and then leave it to dry.

 

 

This has been the best Christmas craft I’ve made with Miss Two. It’s very quick easy to make and they look great. Best of all she loved making it and loves playing with it. You can also adapt to this idea with almost any foam shape you like, just add ribbon and paint!

Mistletoes

Christmas Mistletoes Craft for Kids

These cute little Mistle"toes" are a great Christmas gift for Grandparents!

Other than getting the kids footprints in paint and only on paper, these are so easy to make.

Once you have your footprints, glue them to some thicker card of a different colour to make them stand out and it makes them last a little longer.

Pop a hole in the top and thread a string or ribbon through the top. We used a pipecleaner. 

Tie a pretty bow and glue or staple it to the top and its done!
