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:

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.
