Get in the Spirit With Christmas Crafts!

Kidzworld knows you're already overflowing with Christmas cheer. But for those of you who need a boost, check out these fun holiday crafts to help you get into the spirit!

Christmas Cards

What You Need:

  • Construction paper
  • Glue
  • Decorations

What to Do:

Fold a colorful piece of construction paper in half and start decorating. You can cut out three white circles and glue them on to make a snowman, or draw a fabulous Christmas tree complete with ornaments and a star on top. Use crayons, paint, glitter - anything you can find around the house to make the best personalized Christmas cards ever!

Reindeer Candy Canes

What You Need:

  • Candy canes
  • Brown pipe cleaners
  • Squiggly eyes
  • Small red pompoms
  • Hot glue gun

What to Do:

  • Twist a pipe cleaner onto the top of the candy cane (the part where it curves) to make antlers.
  • Dab some hot glue on both sides of the pipe cleaner to hold it in place. Ask the 'rents to help you with the glue gun cuz it's super hot!
  • Glue the eyes right under the antlers and the pompom nose on the tip of the candy cane.
  • You can hang your reindeer candy canes on the Christmas tree, attach them to presents, or hand 'em out to your class.

Paper Snowflakes

What You Need:

  • White paper
  • Scissors

What to Do:

Make this simple project and you'll have snowflakes falling inside your house! All you need is a few sheets of white paper and scissors. Fold a piece of square paper in half to make a triangle. Now fold it in half to make a smaller triangle, then fold it once more to make an even smaller triangle. Draw some jagged edges up one side and down the other, and then cut along the lines. Carefully open up what's left of your paper and you'll have a pretty snowflake! Use various shapes of paper (try circle shapes) and draw different patterns.

Miniature Gingerbread Houses

Christmas isn't Christmas without a gingerbread house! Here's how to make a miniature version to put on display when company starts a-comin'!

What You Need:

  • 6 graham crackers
  • White icing
  • Assorted candies, chocolates and sprinkles
  • Small milk carton, empty and washed

What to Do:

  • Place milk carton on a sheet of waxed paper.
  • Frost the entire milk carton and firmly press graham crackers onto the carton so that it's completely covered.
  • Now you can frost the roof and sides of your gingerbread house to make it look like snow. Decorate with small candies using Smarties, Reese's Pieces and jelly beans.

These toys reflect that idea.Yes, but new feminists are being born each day. See, I hate pink, beauty, and I cringe at the name "Shopping". I know others don't, but most do. Speaking of which, I was on ROBLOX today when someone said "Girls are noobs".  I was extremely offended by this. I know this got off topic, but still. Girls shouldn't be influenced by toys and gender roles.

Companies create products targeted towards a specific audience.     Toys specifically targeted towards girls are pink and frilly or about professions mostly girls have aren't that way because it's sexist, they're that way because girls generally like the colour pink, pretending to cook (because cooking is really fun), and enjoy taking care of their stuffed animals or baby dolls as if they were actual living things. (These things also teach them skill sets that will be helpful to them in the future, such as how to raise a child if you have any and how to cook so you don't starve to death.)      Toys specifically targeted towards boys are blue or green and/or related to guns and cars and gross bugs/animals because that's what guys are generally into. (And I haven't heard of any science kits targeted specifically towards boys..? Every science kit advert I've seen has had both males and females in it, and I've seen a rather nice amount of them.) That's just the way we are. Nothing will change that. I don't think toys [and other things] should be specifically gendered. Anyone can do and play with anything. Just because it's targeted towards girls or because girls generally have this job more than boys do, doesn't mean a boy can't play with that toy or have that job and vice versa. A product being for this one gender shouldn't stop people of the other gender from buying it. This probably wasn't as coherent as I'd like for it to be, but today's science lesson completely fried my brain, and I don't think I can properly do anything except breathe for the next few hours.
