I can already hear the jingle bells in my head as Christmas season is approaching. At home, we all get very excited to celebrate the most charming season of the year. The question remains who gets more excited, is it me or the kids? We all know that Christmas is about bringing the family together. And to bring kids to sit with you joyfully on the same table, is not hard when you have 10 magical kids Christmas art and crafts ideas to prepare and produce.
I always consider that crafts for kids at home are a space for my kids to learn through play. I believe you have read this statement in many of my articles. Indeed, as we craft, we talk, they ask and I explain, we unleash our creativity and they learn about new things as they broaden their vocabulary.
Whether you are looking for Christmas art and crafts ideas to create Rudolph, Santa, elves, Christmas tree, Christmas nativity and many more, you’re at the right destination. I brought you in this blog 10 magical kids Christmas art and crafts ideas to prepare with your little ones as you enjoy the preparations for this merry season.
So let’s get started!
Tiny tiny red nose Rudolph is a favorite for many kids. So, when you invite them to make a Rudolph craft, you will see them drawing a big smile on their face. Get your kids brown, red, and black carton and start drawing for them the different parts of Rudolph’s body. Then start putting the different pieces together and the red nose reindeer will be ready.
Here is another idea to make Rudolph. Kids can either paint the popsicle sticks with brown paint or get brown colored sticks. As you see them putting the different sticks together, let them pay attention to the antlers. It is best to draw a skeleton of Rudolph or lead by example and do it once in front of them and then they will take the lead.
Ask your kids to place their hands on a white paper and outline them. Their hand prints will turn into Santa’s beard. Cut the remaining parts of the old man’s face and let them stick the different parts together. Now say hello to Santa!
If your kids are in for some sticks activities, than making Santa with Popsicle sticks is a must. With some red paint, cotton, and buttons Santa will be ready. Next, they will have to draw their face expressions. Happy Santa, Sad Santa, Mad Santa… depending on how nice they have been this year!
Get kids excited for Christmas with Santa’s Countdown Calendar. Cut Santa’s face using a carton plate. Use a red paper to draw and cut Santa’s hat. Then add eyes, nose, and cheeks with colored pencils, and use a white paper to draw the beard and bottom of his hat. Let kids practice writing the numbers and then use small cotton pieces and glue to cover the numbers on a daily basis. Kids will be able to fill the full bread by Christmas day.
Kids love painting. And this Christmas tree will definitely feed their painting craving. Cut a carton plate into 3 triangles. Then hand it to kids to paint it in green. Don’t forget about the trunk. Once the tree is ready, let them decorate it with pompoms, buttons, strips, garlands… You’ll be surprised with how creative they can go!
If kids are in for green trees, then green Popsicle sticks are what they need to craft these Christmas tree. They can swap the green with any color of their choice though. First, they will make the shape of a triangle with these sticks. Use a paper to cut the trunk and star and color them. Then get the use of some motifs such as pompoms, garlands, and buttons… to decorate their trees. They can even place a thread to turn these trees into hanging ornaments!
During this season, kids get excited to receive gifts from Santa. They get excited as well to prepare and wrap gifts for their friends and write greeting messages. Here is a nice snowman card to make at home with kids. Draw or print the outline of a snowman. Then give them kids-safe scissors to cut around. Next ask them to create his eyes, nose, scarf buttons and hands using colored papers. Finally, let them write the greeting message and name and the card is ready.
Snowflakes, snowflakes, little snowflakes… falling from the sky. If snowflakes are falling, then let’s make a snowman. Let kids stick together 4 Popsicle sticks, paint them with white, then add black color to the top to form the shape of a cute hat. With a black pen and colored papers they can make the scarf, the eyes, the nose, the mouth and the buttons around his belly. Is it snowing yet?
I can tell you how funny, engaging, and educative this craft is. Start with a white paper and a black marker. Draw the string of a string light. Then, place small buckets of different painting colors in front of your kids and ask them to use their fingerprints to place the lights. Kids love messing up with their hands, they will be very excited to engage in such a fun activity. And you will have a creative way to teach them the different colors. This is a true meaning of the statement “Learning through play”.
