When my son was little, we used to do a lot of crafting together, but now that he’s all but grown up, those days are long gone. I really miss those moments, as we used to have a lot of fun. However, my joy has been re-sparked again, as my 4 year old niece has been getting into crafts over the past few months. She loves making cards, sticking stickers, and sprinkling glitter everywhere! This past weekend, I unearthed some old kids crafts supplies and we made some Christmas cards together, which was lovely.
I thought I would round up a selection of kids crafts for Christmas, so that when the children decide that they are bored during the festive season (!) you’ll have something to keep them occupied.

I’ve loved crafts since I was a little girl, and over the years have quite the stash of crafting supplies. Now that my niece is into crafts, I’ve added some kid friendly items to my stash so that I will always have something that she can do when she comes to our house. I’ve set up a list of supplies that will help you with some of the kids crafts for Christmas ideas above.
