Easy Santa Crafts for kids

When children think of Christmas the first thing they often mention is Santa, so it goes without saying that santa themed Christmas crafts are going to be popular with kids! If you are looking for easy christmas crafts for kids that they can play with you will love our Santa puppet craft made from a wooden spoon!

I also must mention our popular Santa salt dough handprint ornament, as it is one of my favourite Christmas crafts (along with our handprint Santa craft that makes a perfect Christmas card)

Easy Rudolf Crafts for Kids

Where would Santa be without rudolf! Rudolf crafts always look cute with his bright red nose. These fingerprint reindeers make a really easy Christmas craft for kids and they make cute gift tags too. If you make a santa spoon puppet you might want to make a rudolf puppet to go with it and these salt dough footprint reindeers are really cute. You could also make a reindeer Christmas card complete with handprint antlers.

Don't forget to mix up some magic reindeer food for Christmas eve using our free reindeer food printables.

Easy Nativity Crafts for Kids

Nativity crafts are an obvious choice when thinking about Christmas crafts for kids as it is important for children to learn about the Christmas story and the true meaning of Christmas as well as about Santa! One of my favourite nativity crafts is this handprint and footprint nativity craft. It would be so cute made from tiny baby footprints!

Easy Twas the Night Before Christmas Craft for kids

'Twas the Night Before Christmas' has to be one of my favourite books to read on Christmas eve. Make a  Christmas card using the first verse of the book alongside a cute mouse footprint. This is such an easy Christmas craft for kids, especially if you use our Twas the Night Before Christmas printable

Easy Christmas Tree Crafts for Kids

If you are looking for preschool Christmas crafts you are going to love our spin art Christmas trees! They are so much fun to make! These footprint Christmas cards are pretty cute too! Making a fingerprint Christmas tree ornament couldn't be simpler, but these salt dough ornaments look so effective hanging on the Christmas tree.
