15 Christmas Craft Ideas for Kids

When I published “How to make a Halloween Paper Pumpkin” 3 days before Halloween I got many mommies buzzing me requesting to post seasonal crafts EARLY so that they can make them on time for their parties. 

Well, Christmas is in December and it is only the beginning of November now. I hope this entry is not too early though :D

I’ve compiled 15 of our most popular Christmas crafts to share with our readers today.

Here they are in no particular order. Just click on the name of the craft to be forwarded to their full tutorial.

    Thanks for sharing Merryn. Such beautiful items can be crafted with simple materials. I like the hand print reindeer and the toilet paper roll reindeer!

        Oh…I thought of benchmarking this until he is old enough. I would love to do this if possible. Do you know of any non toxic paints that is suitable for small children for such activities?

    Never celebrated Xmas even once. Too late for me now. I wonder how it’d feel like if I celebrated it when I was kid. I can only imagine the awesomeness =( Cold War HK movie review

      Tony, when I was younger, Christmas means only ONE thing – presents and more presents. Now that I’m OLD, Christmas still means presents and more presents but this time, it’s not the receiving BUT the giving! So you are not missing much .. Hahaha :P

    What a fun tradition to have! I remember my childhood Christmases well – it’s the only time we kids can stay up late (doing carols for the church group though haha but still).

    I really like how you’re bringing your kids up – reading your blog and Andrew’s is… aspirational.

    Good job Merryn! :)

      I remembered my friends going for Christmas carols too and I envied them so much. I’m not a Christian, never been to Church so seeing them so hype up caroling was really nice and made me wish I was part of them :(
