How to make kids Christmas crafts out of egg cartons

When you’re looking for kids Christmas crafts, there are a couple of things to keep in mind. They need to be easy, they need to use inexpensive materials, and they need to result in something the kids can enjoy and be proud of. These fun candy trains fulfill all three requirements. They also make good gifts, and they provide a great opportunity for schoolteachers to talk about recycling.

Depending on the age of the children, you may want to set up some parts of this craft ahead of time. Otherwise, recruit older children to help — little ones and bigger ones alike love helping with kids Christmas crafts, especially if it gets them out of school or homework.

Christmas Card Ideas for Kids

Run out of Christmas Card Ideas? Check out these super cute crafts

At this time of year, we’re all looking for Christmas card ideas. This is especially true if you like to do crafts with younger children. There’s nothing quite like a homemade Christmas card to give to Mom or Dad, or to send off to Grandma and Grandpa, or your favorite aunts and uncles.

Unfortunately, while still cute, our very youngest kids tend to make indecipherable cards with scrawls of crayons we have to label as trees and presents. Of course, this type of card has its place. But sometimes you want Christmas card ideas that double as crafts for children of various ages, or you may want something that looks a bit more impressive.

Make A Christmas Craft: Advent Calendar

A simple way to create your own Advent calendar

Kids of all ages love the traditional Advent calendar. Counting down the days to Christmas is something we all love to do. Adults and kids alike can have a great time making this easy Christmas craft.

There are dozens of options with a simple craft like this. One thing I love to do is have the kids work together to make Advent calendars for one another. In my family, each child takes a special trip to the discount store to buy candies, treats, and tiny toys they think their sibling might like. Then we work together to create calendars for one another and hide the toys inside. It’s a tiny gift from brother or sister every day of December.

Preschool Christmas Crafts You Can Finish in Ten Minutes

Quick, easy preschool Christmas crafts

Preschool Christmas crafts can be difficult to find. Sometimes the people who write so-called easy Christmas crafts forget that small children have limited hand-eye coordination.
