christmas crafts for kids

This is a simple Christmas Crafts for kids to do this festive Season. I set up the area like above for both J and T. The felt trees were easy to make – a sheet of felt which I then used my tree cookie cutter to draw around and cut out. In the bowl is a selection of buttons, pom poms, glitter glue, gems and some dotty stickers.

Christmas Crafts for ToddlersT (20 months) on the other hand set about starting straight away – she positioned her gems, buttons and pom poms and added the tinest bit of glitter to each.

I pretty much left them to themselves to create just providing more stuff when asked and cutting more trees when needed.
