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.
