Christmas Crafts For Children
Christmas is a sacred occasion for Christians all over the world. It is celebrated as the birth anniversary of Jesus Christ, a spiritual leader and the founder of Christianity, who is often called Son of God. Christmas customs include attending church, decorating Christmas trees, visiting friends and family and sharing meals with them. As for the kids, they wait for Santa Claus to arrive and load them with gifts. Crafts or other decorative items are an essential part of Christmas as they are required to decorate the Christmas trees. Usually, you spend a considerable amount of money after these decorative items. How about creating some decorative objects at home? We have some amazing Christmas craft ideas, which can save you lot of money and you also get to devote some time with your kids, making some interesting crafts! Crafting can be a fascinating hobby both for children and adults. Making crafts can assist in building the children's imagination too. It is fun and exciting to watch the kids come up with their ideas of crafting. Here are some craft-making concepts that can be helpful to you and your child.
Christmas Craft Ideas For Kids
- You need an A4 size paper and a pair of scissors. First make your paper into a square, by folding it diagonally which forms a triangle. Cut the extra bits off.
- Now fold this triangle into another triangle; further fold this triangle into a smaller triangle.
- Now start cutting designs into your triangle, while being careful about the tip/middle of the triangle. Pull open the paper and you would have a gorgeous paper snowflake ready.
- Be careful while pulling the bits of paper from the design that you have made, and take care while opening up the snowflake. You can just not go wrong with this art.
Pictures are the easiest of all crafts. This does not essentially mean drawing a picture, but getting some of the best photos of your family and putting them together to make a picture frame also. You can get a drawing sheet (large or small) and paste some good photos and color the borders. Allow your child to choose the color and fill the borders.
You need 4 wrapping papers of different patterns, and some glue. Cut the paper from the rolls to about 50cm long and cut each of them into thin strips. Glue the ends of the first strip and paste the other end on it to form a loop. Insert another strip into the first loop and glue the ends again and paste the other loop. Continue doing this until you form a chain. Your paper chain is ready!
Get a small 2" ornament ball and draw a spiral around it with a glitter pen. Then attach a hook (ornament hook) on one side of the ball and let it dry. Your glitter ball is ready. Decorate your Christmas tree with as many glitter balls as you want!
Creating some small and simple things at home for Christmas decorations and involving your kids in the task is a cute idea and makes this occasion that much more Christmassy. So, go ahead, adopt some ideas from above and have a family Christmas.
