The festive season is just around the corner; and for children it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas presents, sweet treats, fun, games and lots of family time! Get in the Christmas spirit with a spot of Christmas crafting with the kids. From candy cane crafts for Christmas to Christmas ornaments for kids to make, here’s our round-up of our favourite easy Christmas crafts for children.
Super sweet candy canes
Candy canes might look mega impressive, but these easy peasy patterns are perfect for beginner makers and older children who know the basics of knitting, crochet or embroidery! We love the embroidery sampler with lots of Christmassy designs that can be traced onto fabric and placed in a hoop ready for children to start colouring in with a needle and thread!
While Rudolph and his reindeer friends are gearing up to hit the skies this Christmas Eve, get making with the kids! The simple pom pom design is great for younger children to make, while older kids and budding crocheters master the more advanced (but achievable!) patterns.
Christmas craft kits
If you’ve got a crafty little one in your life, treat them to one of these fun Christmas craft kits so they can get making for the big day! These felt kits are really easy, perfect for beginner crafters and younger children.
Come rain or shine, make sure there’s a snowman in your house this Christmas! If you know a Frozen fanatic, the Olaf cushion is sure to impress. For fans of traditional snowmen, the needle felting kit is an ideal stocking filler!
If your kids aren’t very confident with yarn crafts, then these fab patterns could be the answer in your household! Make up any of these simple ornament designs and let the kids do the cutting, sticking and decorating to create a design of their own. The simple Christmas tree pattern would look fantastic with added glitter tinsel and sequin baubles!
We can’t guarantee a white Christmas, but we can predict a downpour of soft snowflakes in your house! These fab snowflake designs are simple enough for kids to make, and they’ll look fantastic dotted around your home when it comes to the festive season. Older children who are more confident with needle crafting will love the challenge of embroidering neat snowflakes on to napkins for the Christmas dinner table!
