Christmas Crafts

Barbara J. Feldman

“‘Tis the season to be jolly.” And Christmas crafts certainly add to the season’s jolliness, don’t you think? This week’s website picks showcase Christmas craft projects for kids of all ages.

  • All Free Crafts: Christmas5 stars

    With more than 150 original Christmas crafts, All Free Crafts is quite a find. Organized into six categories (such as Santa Crafts, Light Bulb Crafts and Easy Tree Trims) many of the projects focus on using recycled household items, and all have photos of the finished project. Other featured holidays include Valentines Day, Mother's Day, and Halloween.

  • All Kids Network: Kids Christmas Crafts5 stars

    "All of these Christmas themed crafts were made in our own home so we know that they are fun and child-friendly. So light a fire in the fireplace, make some hot cocoa, put on your favorite holiday movie and gather the family around the table to make some of our great kids Christmas crafts!" This Christmas page has a couple dozen projects, with links to printable worksheets, coloring pages, and mazes in the right-hand column.

  • Busy Bee Kids Crafts: Christmas Crafts for Kids5 stars

    "This Christmas why not create a Posable Reindeer, make your own homemade Christmas Ornaments with our Salt Dough Recipe, or design your own Winter Window card for a special homemade teacher gift?" Visit Busy Bee Kids Crafts for three dozen illustrated craft projects (for ages two and up) and last, but not least, a whole slew of Christmas printables including coloring pages, word search puzzles and dot-to-dots.

  • Enchanted Learning: Christmas K-3 Theme Page5 stars

    "These crafts projects use materials found around the house, like egg cartons, cardboard, paper, boxes, string, crayons, paint, glue, etc. See the page about color mixing to see how to combine paint to make all the colors of the rainbow." Enchanted Learning hits the mark with oodles of Christmas crafts and printable activity pages (which are my personal favorites.) Those looking for Hanukkah projects, will find them here.

  • Pinterest: Sassy Sites: Christmas Crafts for Kids5 stars

    This beautiful Pinterest board was created by user Sassy Sites. If you are new to Pinterest, you do not need an account to view any of the boards, but just browsing this collection may be enough to get you hooked. To visit the actual craft sites, click on any of the pins (the photos) to open the image in a new window, then click one more time to visit the originating site. In addition to this board, you can search for more "Christmas crafts for kids" using the search function in the upper left-hand corner.
