Easy, Inexpensive, and Creative Christmas Crafts for Kids

Creative Christmas Crafts: Photo Frames

Chances are your child will have a holiday photo this year- whether it’s a studio portrait or a candid taken in the backyard, it’s a wonderful idea to present family members and friends with a creatively framed photograph.

Go to a craft store or dollar store and purchase a number of plain wooden frames. These can then be painted by the child, who can add number stickers for the year, glitter, buttons, or other embellishments.

Holiday Crafts: Homemade Ornaments

There are so many fun ideas for homemade Christmas ornaments kids can make themselves to give to relatives, teachers or friends. Oriental Trading sells a huge variety of easy-to-assemble Christmas crafts- one of their easiest is the snowflake ornament pictured below (only $7.95 for 12 wooden ornament kits).

Even if you don’t want to order craft kits, you can assemble snowflake ornaments easily on your own with popsicle sticks, a hot glue gun (for use by parents only!) and some glitter glue. Kids can sign and date the ornaments, which will make them a nice keepsake for friends and family.

Creatively Cute: Footprint Christmas Trees

This holiday craft makes the perfect keepsake item, especially for grandparents who have multiple grandchildren. You will need an 11 x 14 piece of poster board (for easy framing), washable poster paints, construction paper, some glitter glue or decorative holiday confetti to ‘decorate’ the trees, and some barefoot kids!

You can either use white poster board with green paint, or green or blue poster board with white paint. If you have, for example, three different aged kids, you have them ‘step’ in the paint (by placing some in a shoe box) and put their footprints on the poster board all facing in the same direction.

It is amazing how much upside-down kids footprints look like Christmas trees when decorated! Add a construction paper star (you could use a rubber stamp also) to the top of each tree.

Decorate trees with glitter balls or holiday confetti ‘ornaments.’ Have each child ‘sign’ their names below their tree footprints, and write the year in the corner. Frame, wrap, and presto! Inexpensive, easy holiday keepsake gifts.
