“Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way”, are you excited to celebrate Christmas with your family at the end of this year? Christmas is all about spending time with family and friends and making fun memories that will last a lifetime.
While there are lots of ways to get the entire family into the Christmas spirit – sitting down together to create your own Christmas decorations with the kids can be a memory that will last a lifetime.
Here are some examples of what you can make with your child this Christmas. Have Fun!
1. Christmas Popsicle Stick Craft
If you’re looking for a simple Christmas decoration craft to try with your kids, you can try to use popsicle sticks to make different cute crafts. You can turn popsicle sticks into a snowman, Christmas tree, reindeer, penguin, and more. Once they’re done, the children can hang their crafts on the Christmas tree – a great personal touch that the kids will surely remember.
2. Cupcake Wrapper Christmas Trees
Beautiful wrappers can also be used for other purposes than making cakes. For example, Cupcake Wrapper Christmas Trees. You can let your kids fold the wrappers and stick on ice cream sticks with glue. You also could even add beautiful stickers and a loop of ribbon to make a decoration to put on the Christmas tree.
3. Painting Christmas Balls
With a Christmas tree, there’s no shortage of colourful Christmas balls! Just use any coloured christmas ball and add your own creativity – such as drawing some snowflakes, a snowman, Santa, or you can add glitter powder and more. Adding your own personalised design to your Christmas tree would definitely make your tree standout and it’s a great way to showcase your kids’ artwork too.
4. Handprint Wreath
Need a beautiful wreath to hang on your door? Why not make one! Simply get your child to trace their hand on some green paper and make multiple templates of this cutout. Start sticking them to make a circle, add a few well-placed red circles and walla, you have a beautiful handmade wreath to hang anywhere you like.
5. Beaded Candy Cane Ornaments
Another beautiful ornament that you and your kids can easily make are beaded candy cane ornaments. Simply add the different colour beads on some pipe cleaners and bend the pipe cleaner into a candy cane shape. The candy cane ornaments will look great on the Christmas tree and can also be hung on Christmas presents.
6. Christmas Tree Whirligig Craft
Here’s a fun little Christmas tree ornament that your kids will love! First, trace a spiral on a piece of green card or paper and cut along the lines. After that, decorate with stickers, pompoms, and glitter, then add a star at the top and hang it up! As simple as that.
At the end of the day, the most important thing while creating these crafts is not how the ornaments turn out, but instead the enjoyable moments and memories that you make with your children.
