Let your child give away some of their creations to grandparents, aunts and uncles as a way of saying I love you. The recipients of your child’s small labor of love will certainly be much appreciated.

These simple and fun activities will hopefully spark a host of other ideas that you can come up with to make with your children. Allow them to use their imaginations and realize that it’s OK if everything does not come out perfect the first time. Reassure them that with more practice, your works of art will turn out just fine.

Arts and Crafts With Christmas Lights

By Cody Scholberg

Although it may not appeal to you at first, there are lots of good reasons to know how to make arts and crafts out of outdoor Christmas lights. The holidays are not just about you, but also your family. Along with family comes the opportunities to amuse younger children. You might also be from a family that has lots of individuals that are totally different. Besides board games, often crafting projects are a solution for family fun. Having a few tricks up your sleeves that involve outdoor Christmas lights can be extremely handy for days where you need to entertain them.

Crafting Traditions for The Holidays

In the past, most Christmas presents were handmade. As a matter of fact, in some families they still work very hard to maintain this tradition. It wasn’t until the late 1800s that it became common to buy Christmas presents. For this reason, it can be a fun idea to make Christmas about making gifts for each other. Outdoor Christmas lights are a fun way to craft and are easy enough for small children to work with.

Crafting with Short Strings of Lights

Shorter strings of outdoor Christmas lights are perfect for decorating smaller objects. After they’re finished, they can be used as outdoor decorations. Some popular ideas for shorter strands of outdoor Christmas lights are:

o Making snowmen decorations

o Making a wreath

o Making a message or shape (for example, spelling out Merry Christmas)

More Complicated Crafts

There was a popular children’s toy in the 1970s that specifically dealt with lights. You can imitate this on a large scale as an exciting outdoor Christmas lights craft project. Basically, you will need a small drill, tons of Christmas lights, a hot glue gun, and a very large piece of plywood.

First, you’ll need to paint the plywood. The second step will be to draw whatever you want to outline with lights. The next step is to drill holes that are far enough away from each other so the structure is not compromised. Put the lights through the holes and keep them in place with the hot glue. The end result is a personalized outdoor decoration.

Easy Decorations

Of course, everyone wants something elegant, beautiful, and unique for their outdoor home decorations during the Christmas season. An easy way to craft something that everyone will love is to make a wreath for the front door. This simply involves having some sort of round frame to attach the outdoor Christmas lights to. Of course, you might want to arrange and rearrange until you get what you want, but the idea is simple.

Christmas Crafts – Homemade Gifts and Decorations For a Traditional Holiday Season With Less Stress

By Penny Vedrenne

It’s a great time to start thinking about Christmas crafts because after all Christmas is on the way! Yeah, that’s right. Already! Well, if you find that lately you’re greeting the holidays with sighs of anxiety instead of the anxious excitement of past years than maybe it’s time to make some positive changes. Bring back the simpler times when Christmas was more about sharing special moments with the people in your life and not so much about crowded afternoons in the mall stressing over the perfect gifts for everyone on your list.

There are so many reasons to return to the simpler times when we exchanged homemade Christmas crafts. Here are just a few of the best reasons:

First and most important, I think we all need to use this time to step back and reconnect with our family and friends on a personal level. We spend our lives emailing and texting from the carpool line. We rush through days and events sometimes not knowing if we are coming and going. Do you ever wonder what you might be missing? I know it’s not easy to put aside a block of time but do it anyway. Trade off some of the time you will be standing in a line at the mall for time at home crafting some decorations or gifts or cards. Invite some friends over to share ideas or get the kids involved.

You’ll save money by making homemade gifts, cards and decorations! These days everyone can use a little of this. But don’t feel guilty about giving homemade gifts. A gift should never have a dollar obligation amount attached to it. It really is about what comes from the heart and a homemade gift shows that you took the time to make something special for a loved one and what is more valuable than your time. Besides with some great ideas you’ll be delivering gifts that everyone will enjoy!

Looking for a stress buster? Well, creating Christmas crafts is a great way to reduce stress for a couple of good reasons. First, if you make some great gifts and decorations, that’s less time in the stores and malls (and what’s more stressful than fighting the crowds and worrying about if what you bought is the perfect gift). Second, it’s very relaxing and enjoyable to create. Not to mention that you will feel uplifted and motivated to think about the nice gifts that you are making for the special people in your life or the wonderful decorations that will enhance your holiday décor.

Want to make someone feel really special? I will always remember the time a friend of mine cried because she loved my homemade gift so much. The truth is that if you give someone a gift that came from your hands that is truly an item that they cannot get anywhere themselves. No matter how much money they have or what resources they can pull from, a homemade gift is unique!

Christmas should be about the people in our lives, right? Then I have a great idea! Plan some time to get together with friends and family to work with Christmas craft patterns. It’s a great way to share ideas and work out some one-of-a-kind decorations. Have a wine and cheese and crafts party. Better yet, get the kids involved. They love making things and can you think of a better way to encourage their creativity. Arts and crafts are great for people of all ages, so don’t leave out Grandma and Grandpa too. I bet they can add a few hints to the projects on hand.

In fact, children love doing craft projects, but after a while, there is no room left to display their little masterpieces. But, the holidays offer a unique time because they can make gifts for the family that will be highly cherished. Don’t laugh! I bet somewhere in your Mother or Grandmother’s closet is something you made in first grade. It’s easy to find Christmas craft patterns and ideas that everyone in the family can do and enjoy.

I know when you take the time to relax and immerse yourself into a fulfilling project you will not only get into the spirit of the season you will also make someone feel very special because you took the time to make something special for them (and it’s OK if that person is you)!

Now, I know you can come up with many creative Christmas crafts. After all, it’s that personal touch that you are shooting for, right? I hope you have a Wonderful Season!

Hi! I’m Penny Vedrenne and I’m on a mission to get you excited about Christmas again. Sounds corny, doesn’t it? Well, if you are a crafter or artist you already know how thrilling it is to create. From this article you learned that there are many reasons that crafting will help you get into the Christmas spirit, reconnect with loved ones and reduce the stress of the holidays.

So, now you’re ready to start looking for ideas. No problem! It’s my job to come up with as many ways as possible to be creative with stencils and then give you the complete how to information!

Two Fun and Easy Christmas Crafts to Try With Your Kids

By Faige Kobre

Christmas is a holiday where all kinds of kids crafts are created at home and in the school environment.

Crafts for kids, however should be an activity that should bring fun and excitement to children’s activities aside from adding a bonding to the adults that are doing the projects with them.

Educational arts and crafts is a way of doing crafts with children where they are not blindly copying the adults model but are creating things that they are capable of creating at their own developmental level.

When children create at their own level a number of things occur.

It creates a great feeling about themselves, as who can feel good about crafts projects that are copycat models of someone else’s. Kids crafts projects that are done by using their own creativity makes them feel so much better about themselves.

An additional benefit that educational arts and crafts has is its allowance for much greater creativity. When an adult does a project and want a child to copy it, it’s the perfect way to repress creativity.

There are a few categories that are part of educational art. There is the cafeteria style that allows children to choose materials to work with, there is process only art where the process is what counts along with a few more.

The point of it is that all of the crafts under educational arts and crafts should be age appropriate, and allow for freedom of creation and expression.

I am going to show you two extremely easy and inexpensive Christmas craft ornaments that you can make.

The first one uses plastic throwaway cups:

You will need to offer the children an array of colorful, permanent markers so they can color all over their cups. It will be a much nicer decoration if you get the kids to cover as much as you can with markers on the cup.

When they are done, take a cookie sheet and put the cups upside down on it and put in the over at around 350 degrees. Allow them to stay in for a few minutes as they melt. Watch them carefully so they don’t burn all the way down. As you can imagine, the cups and tray get really hot so the kids must be kept away until they get cool.

When they are cool, make a hole in the center and use colorful ribbon to hang as an ornament for your tree.

For our next craft you will use any unused or not needed DVD’s or CD’s.

Basically: Decorate them and hang them.

There are endless methods you can use to beautify the CD’s.

You can color with permanent markers, glue and glitter them, collage over them, decoupage over them, and decorate them with whatever shiny, decorative materials you can find. Once they are done, get some pretty ribbon and hang them from your tree. If you want to see what a crafts activity done in the cafeteria style is like then check out this Hanukkah Crafts collage

Easy Christmas Craft Ideas For Kids

By Jennifer Brister

One special Christmas craft idea for your children is to have them make their own individualized Christmas ornaments. You can encourage them to think up their own decoration ideas. Virtually any type of material, including regular paper, can be used to make Christmas ornaments. Your local craft store should have Christmas craft kits with cutouts and stencils. Often these cutouts are in plain shapes, such as a star or cross. Your child gets to decide how to decorate each ornament.

Most families have many Christmas decorations around the house, such as figures, signs and pictures, and of course, a Christmas tree. The signs and pictures usually carry a favorite Christmas message or saying, or feature a likeness of Santa. Pictures like this can easily be made by your kids, using supplies that are already available in the house. A child’s Christmas picture can be used as great refrigerator art, or you could frame and hang it somewhere the child can see it often. Christmas craft projects are ideal for children of all ages and usually cost next to nothing, as you may already have most of the necessary supplies in the house.

Another craft project for the kids to make is a Christmas centerpiece for the dinner table. A special decoration like that can be used on the table during Christmas dinner. And if you prefer a more elegant look for your centerpiece, the children can still create something to suit your taste. Buy some artificial flowers and other decorative Christmas-themed items, along with a large bowl or vase. Then let the kids arrange the flowers and other decorations to make their own fancy centerpiece. It’s a good idea to let kids use their imaginations in making crafts.

Kids’ Holiday Art Project

By Anthony Vecchioni

The holidays can be a stressful time for parents, and that can mean spending less time with your kids. A simple way to restore some old fashion fun to the season is to get out the art supplies and do a holiday art project together. The activity can be as simple as representing meaningful people, symbols, or even colors that correspond to your holiday season.

Here’s a fun holiday art project that’s easy to do and looks great around the house.

What You’ll Need:

-8.5″ x 11″ green construction paper

-white and red tempera or kids’ washable paint

-a plastic bin

-2 marbles

– glue (that dries clear)

– silver glitter

What to Do:

Step 1. Use green construction paper to cut out a simple Christmas tree. (Hint: fold a sheet of paper in half to cut out your first Christmas tree the easy way. Now use that first tree as a template: place template over green construction paper. Trace the outline. Now cut out the outline. Repeat for additional trees.)

Step 2. Now place the cut-out in a plastic bin. Add a thin line of red tempera paint in the bin (but not on the cut-out). Place two marbles in the bin. Now let your child tilt the bin back and forth. This will cause the marbles to roll through the paint and make decorative lines over the Christmas tree. (If you do not have paint use colored markers instead. Skip to step 8.)

Step 3. If you are making more than one Christmas tree, add more paint and repeat Step 2.

Step 4. Wipe out the bin. Allow paint to dry–approximately thirty minutes.

Step 5. Put Now put your Christmas tree cut-out back into the bin. Add a line of white paint. Add two clean marbles. Again let your child tilt the bin back and forth so that the marbles roll through the paint and over the cut-out.

Step 6. If you are making more than one Christmas tree, add more paint and repeat Step 5.

Step 7. Wipe out the bin. Allow paint to dry–approximately thirty minutes.

Step 8. Put your Christmas tree on a sheet of newspaper. Open bottle of glue. Tilt it upside down and use the tip like a pencil. Help your child make sweeping lines back and forth. Now, allow your child to sprinkle silver glitter onto the Christmas tree. Do not shake off excess glitter until glue has dried (approximately 30 minutes). Make sure your Christmas trees are not sticking to the newspaper.

Step 9. Help your child cut small triangles out of any colored paper (when cutting small shapes, triangles are much easier to cut than circles). Glue the triangles onto your trees for further decoration.

Step 10. Use string and a bit of tape on the back of the Christmas trees to hang them around the house.

This holiday art project can be repeated with circle cut outs to make ornaments for around the house. Simply add a small square to the top of your circle to simulate the look of an actual ornament.

Whether you’re making Christmas trees or ornaments, be sure to display art works around the house so your child gains a sense of accomplishment. It can be very rewarding when a guest or relative says, ‘Who made this lovely Christmas tree decoration?’ And lastly, don’t forget that your child will gain an even stronger sense of reward by giving holiday art as a gift to family and loved ones. Enjoy!

Another art and craft Halloween decoration is the creepy balloon ghost, which is very easy to make. All you need is white balloons and plastic grocery bags. The bags should be plain with no writing on them. Here is how to create a spooky ghost: Cut off the handles of the grocery bag. Leaving the bottom of the bag intact, with the help of scissors, cut the bag into dangling strips up to about an inch from the bottom seam. In the same manner cut up another grocery bag. Fill up the balloon with air and knot it up. Tape the seam of one bag to the front and the other to the back, leaving the knot on top. Paint a scary face of the ghost on the balloon and tie a string to the knot. Hang up these creepy balloons to trees in the yard. You may also put a few bells to the end of the strips, so that they make a sound with the movement of the wind. Enjoy the haunting chimes of the ghosts moving around in your yard!
