Hey crafty mumsie lovers!
‘Tis the season for some jolly-good, glitter-filled, paint-splattered fun with your little ones. Christmas and craft go together like kids and chaos, so jump into our toddler-friendly holiday crafts that’ll make your hearts merry and bright:
1. Handprint Wreaths:
Grab some green paper and let your kiddo’s hands work their magic! Trace those cute little handprints, cut them out, and arrange them in a circle to make a wreath. Stick on some red pom-poms for holly berries, and ta-da! You've got a keepsake wreath filled with tiny handprints.
2. Cotton Ball Santa:
Santa Claus gets a fluffy makeover with this one. Find a Santa outline (or doodle your own) and let your toddler glue on cotton balls for his hat and beard. It’s like giving Santa a cozy, soft makeover!
3. Popsicle Stick Ornaments:
Popsicle sticks aren’t just for ice pops anymore! Lay them out in a star or tree shape, hand over the paint and glitter, and let your kiddo go wild. Once they’re dry, add a ribbon, and these homemade ornaments are ready to jazz up the tree.
4. Scented Play Dough Ornaments:
Get ready for a sensory experience! Make salt dough (just flour, salt, and water), roll it out, cut out shapes, and bake them. Then, paint them up and add some essential oils for a fragrant touch. Your tree will smell as good as it looks!
5. Paper Plate Reindeer Masks:
Turn paper plates into reindeer magic! Cut a hole for the face, slap on some brown paper antlers, googly eyes, and a red pom-pom for the nose. Your little one can prance around as their very own Rudolph!
These crafts aren’t about perfection. They’re about the giggles, the mess (oh, embrace the mess!), and the memories you’re making together. Each creation is a masterpiece in its own right!
So, grab your craft goodies, pop on some tunes, and let the crazy craft creations commence! Happy holidays and may your days be merry and oh-so-crafty!
Crafting during Christmas with your little elves can be the most heartwarming chaos! I hope these ideas bring tons of joy and laughter to your holiday season!
