33 Super Simple, Fab Fun Christmas Crafts

Children make an extraordinary number of kids christmas crafts, don’t they?

Some of them are so bad they get thrown away at the earliest opportunity. Others are loveable but fall apart, only making it through one season of glory.

But no childhood is complete without that one item of craft that forever remains part of the annual reveal of ornaments and decorations.

Every year my grandmother would bring out a popsicle stick nativity scene that my father made as a child. This delighted us as kids as it was a reminder that Dad was once a child too!

Every year my mother would hang on the tree a bunch of heart-shaped green and red woven bags that my brother and I made (with Mom’s help) as kids. Right into adulthood we loved the joy of finding special sweets in the little bags.

What Christmas craft is going to become part of your family’s yearly tradition? These 33 ideas ought to get you in the crafty Christmas spirit.
