When you’re swamped with work and other responsibilities, delegate the Christmas decorations to your children. Allow them to enjoy the thrill of participating in Christmas crafts. Following on from the accessible paper crafts for kids, we are sharing three easy crafts for kids this year:
1. Santa in the chimney
This is a craft where your child may require your αssistance with cutting and pasting. When Santa peeks out of the chimney, you can see the magical smile on your child’s face.
Brown paper bag
A medium-size drawing of Santa
Sketch pen/ color pencils
1 icecream stick
1. Paint the front of the paper bag red, leaving an inch or two on top, as shown in the photo.
2. Print the Santa drawing on thick paper or tape it to cardboard for support. You and your child can color the Santa together.
3. Define Santa’s beard, hair, and the helm of the dress by sticking cotton to the wh̾i̾t ̾e areas.
4. Using a black marker, trace the bricks of the chimney. To achieve the snow effect, apply a thin layer of cotton on top.
5. Using scissors, cut one side of the chimney away from the top and bottom ends.
6. Attach an ice cream stick to Santa’s back, as shown in the image.
7. Insert the end of the ice cream stick through the gap in the sides and place Santa inside the chimney. That’s all there is to it; Santa is ready to peek out the chimney. This is one of the kid’s crafts that can also be used as a toy.
2. Cloth Snowman
There isn’t a child alive who doesn’t like this solid and adorable snowman. While we can’t keep a snowman inside, we can roll it up with a simple art and craft idea. The advantage of this five-minute craft DIY is that we only need a few ingre∂ιєnts and a short amount of time.
A big cloth
A small cloth
A small ball
1. Cover the ball with a large cloth and tie a knot at the top as shown. Use a rubber band to secure it.
2. Take the small cloth and neatly secure it with a rubber band to cover the knot. Attach the pins to form the snowman’s eyes.
3. Form the cap by placing the socks on top of the covered knot. Tie the ribbons around the neck and fix the pompoms in the center as buttons. The adorable and handsome snowman is poised to make his way around. After this delightful five-minute crafts DIY, I’m sure your kids will want to do more art and craft.
3. Christmas Wreath
Here’s another five-minute craft DIY for you. A wreath is always a must-have for Christmas decorations. Why spend money or time on art and craft when you can do it in five minutes? This craft is a favorite among children because it is one of the simplest crafts for children.
Artificial pine leaves
1. On the cardboard, draw two circles two inches apart and cut through the lines with scissors. We now have the wreath’s ring.
2. Cut the artificial pine leaves into small pieces and glue them to the ring, as shown in the picture.
The wreath’s rim is now complete. The wreath will now be decorated. Take the fake fruits and stick them to the leaves. Check that the fruits aren’t stuck to the cardboard.
3. Let’s get started! The wreath is now ready to be displayed in your home. Hang it near your Christmas tree or on your front door, as shown in the image. Can you see the little one’s excitement there?
