‘Tis the season for Christmas crafts!
I’ve found some new (at least to me) crafts that you and your children might enjoy doing in the days leading up to Christmas.
Most of these I found at The Best Ideas for Kids (thebestideasforkids.com) website. They’ve curated a lot more crafts, so be sure and check them out. Another, I found on YouTube. It’s one of the most creative I’ve seen in a long time. Scroll down and enjoy:
Paper Plate Christmas Tree Craft
This one is very creative and, for the most part, easy. All you need is some green yarn, a hole punch, a paper plate, and maybe some patience. It’s found at Non-Toy Gifts: https://nontoygifts.com/paper-plate-christmas-tree-craft-kids/
Reindeer Footprint Christmas Cards
Okay, this one is a tad messy, but if you have young children and want to make something the grandparents will treasure, try out these reindeer footprint Christmas cards. You can find it at Emma Owl – Ideas and Inspiration for Families and Children: https://emmaowl.com/reindeer-footprint-christmas-cards-all-you-need-is-a-shiny-nose/
Marshmallow Snowman Ornament
In addition to being really cool, this one is edible–sort of. At least some of the supplies (miniature marshmallows) are. This ornament is easy to make and will look great on your (or someone else’s tree).

Popsicle Stick Snowflake Ornaments
I love these snowflake ornaments. They’re easy to make and you can let your creativity run wild. Check them out at The Best Ideas for Kids:
DIY Paper-Fold Christmas Tree
This origami-like paper fold Christmas tree is stunning. This one is probably not for young children, but if you have some who want a challenge, encourage them to give this a try. I might even do one myself. Watch the following video to see how it’s done.
