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.

Everyone should be entitled to their own opinion, not damned to hell for having their own beliefs. I will admit I haven't ready everything in this topic, but so far, I'm agreeing with Teh-Skittlez. I'm not a religious person, I'm not saying anyone is "wrong", but I do think we should live our lives to the fullest, because the truth is, we don't know what comes after this life and therefore, doesn't it make sense that we should make the most of the one we have? The things we accomplish and the people we build relationships with may not matter after we're gone, and probably won't be recorded in any history books, but does that make them any less important to us?

You are the first person I have known (other than myself) to say rubber duckie. :D "lelnah" wrote: Which is more? Are humans harmful more than helpful? Or helpful more than harmful? Well, the "help" humans provide are for our own race, to cure ourselves from illnesses and build ourselves bigger buildings, etc. But meanwhile, we are damaging our planet and destroying the habitats/food resources of other animals. I would have to say we are harmful more than helpful, in terms of what we do to the earth and the creatures around us.
