We always say it, I know, but really, where is the time going? I cannot believe that it is just over a month to go before it is Christmas. We are crazy busy at work, and never ending stuff to do at home. In between all this craziness, I would really like to slot in some time to have some crafty fun with my kids. What better way to get them excited for the Christmas season? I have put together this list of 20 super easy and fun Christmas activities that anyone will be able to squeeze into their busy lives.
My 20 top picks for Christmas activities with small kids:
Toilet roll Santa
Paper plate Santa
These Santas made from paper plate are adorable and easy to make. Just grab some red and white paper, a paper plate and some paint if you do not have the plastic craft eyes or fluffy nose.
3. Wooden popsicle stick Santa
You can use these sticks to teach your kids about numbering and counting if you like. Otherwise use them without the numbers as decor for pots and plants.
4. Popcorn Santa
A craft that will keep the kids entertained for sure. Make sure to involve them in the actual popping of the popcorn. My kids are sure to eat the popcorn while we are making the Santa.
5. Glitter Christmas tree
Grab some wood glue, any odd buttons and beads and glue away. Fun, messy and super cute end product that your kids will be proud of.
6. Gingerbread man shape matching
Make this an educational activity or just have fun adding the eyes, mouth and decorating the hands and feet.
