Top 30 DIY Christmas Crafts for Kids

1. Snowflaked Stamped Bags

To decorate the front of the brown paper bags, use snowflake rubber stamps with light blue, dark blue, and white ink. Create two openings at the top of the bag using a round hole punch. Put some red and white baker's twine through each hole and secure it with a knot.

2. Pom-Pom Christmas Tree Ornament

Use a triangular template to cut out a piece of green construction paper, then glue it on the end of a craft stick. Place pom-poms over the triangles on the paper. Instead of attaching the pom-poms on a sheet of paper, you may also just hot glue them directly into the shape of a triangle tree.

3. Santa Slime

Your slime will last longer if you keep it in an airtight container. To make the Best crafts for kids, Keep in mind, too, that after a day or so, any fluffy slime will lose its "fluffiness" without losing any of its other playability.

4. Pasta Christmas Tree

While this activity is ideal for preschoolers, kids of all ages will enjoy making and using their creations. If you want your Christmas trees to stand out, you may even add glitter to them.

5. Tea Light Snowman Ornaments

View of my tea lights from the side. You can see how the "flame" bends slightly in the middle. Place the face such that the flame is atop the candle. Simply said, it improves the appearance of the carrot nose. Get out your black Sharpie and make a cute little face on the tea light. Use googly eyes if you like, however, I thought the plain black dots looked better.

6. Sparkly Icicle Craft

This glittering icicle project may be used as tree decorations during Christmas or to create a Winter show all season long. Since I haven't had time to put up our Christmas tree, I've temporarily hung our ornaments from the Wishing tree. They indeed help establish a great wintry mood.

Tie the ribbons in tight bundles for the greatest appearance. The ribbons will curve and overlap ever-so-slightly.

8. Christmas Tree Ornaments Wrapped with Yarn

Create the triangles by cutting cardboard.  Attach the yarn to the triangle's midpoint. The yarn may be made more secure by using glue. White school glue should be applied liberally on one side of the triangle.

9. Glittery Christmas Tree

These are very cute and would make wonderful homemade Christmas cards or holiday present for Grandma. Watercolors in blue and purple are a great place to start while working on your piece of mixed-media paper. We recommend leaving a narrow unpainted border around the edge, but it's up to you. Completely dry your paper.
