Christmas Crafting With Kids

It’s that time of year again – the week before Christmas when all through the house, the kiddos were crafting as quiet as a mouse.

haha not really – it’s most likely pure chaos!  But, here are some simple & helpful tips (to help you) with Christmas crafting with kids!

Christmas Crafting With Kids

  • HAVE REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS

Not every child is going to be artistically gifted. Enjoy the process, not just the end result.

  • BE PREPARED FOR MESSINESS

Most art projects will be messy. Cover your surface with paper and use materials that are washable. When you’re finished, roll up the paper and discard the mess easily.





  • DRESS APPROPRIATELY

Now is not the time for your child to wear their favorite outfit, it will get ruined. Have your child wear an old t-shirt or smock to protect their clothes and allow them to create.

  • GET INVOLVED

Use crafting as a way to connect with your child. Craft projects give you a good opportunity to spend time together, talk, and bond over a shared experience.

  • ENCOURAGE & ENABLE

Encourage new skills – it’s okay to make mistakes and not to give up.  Enable self expression – have your child involved in picking projects they want to do.

  • BE PATIENT

Try not to control it all. Let your child explore that new art supply or tool. Encourage, but don’t take over the craft.

  • HAVE FUN

Put on music, have an open time frame, allow them to be creative without limits, you’ll be much happier (& so will they).

 

And speaking of simple Christmas crafting with kids – here are some SIMPLE crafts to try this week.

Well, not really crafts, per se, because they provide some usefulness & can end up on the tree instead of becoming unending art clutter ;)
