Christmas crafts play a major role in Christmas traditions. Below you will find our family's favorite crafts along with materials needed, resources, and instructions. Have fun crafting with your children!
Advent ornaments are our favorite Christmas craft. These are also known as Jesse tree ornaments. You can make these out of any medium you wish. When the children we little, we used construction paper and glitter and taped them to our windows.
Now we make more elaborate ornaments and hang them on a Jesse Tree.
This craft is very simple and works well with little children from preschool to early grade school years. The one pictured above was made by our 2 1/2 year old. She loves it and carries it around. I did the cutting but she colored it and enjoys gluing down the cottonballs to the cloud.
Straw boxes are placed on family altars where the "straw" can be removed each time a sacrifice is made and placed in the manger to pillow baby Jesus on Christmas morning.
With last year's Christmas cards or pretty paper, write the child's name. Attach a chain of yellow construction paper to the card.
Using contact paper, Christmas cards, stickers and other embellishments, create a place mat for each member of the family.
Baby's first Christmas? Want it to be special? Here is a fun craft that will be enjoyed for years. Place baby's foot in a tray full of brown paint, stamp to a piece of fabric. Add antlers and nose. Lightly stuff and sew to another piece of fabric creating a pillow. Add baby's name and date.
