This is my favorite time of the year. I am a bit of a Christmas junkie, and for the month of December I enjoy all things Christmas. From the music that entertains me in my car and at work, to putting up the decorations, and all the time with family and friends - this time of year is special. One of the things I look forward to the most as my daughter gets older is the variety of Christmas crafts available for her to make. When I was growing up I enjoyed our annual Christmas crafts at church where, for a half-day, I would make a variety of crafts one morning along with other church friends. Some would be simple, some a little more involved, but I enjoyed them and I hope my daughter will have a similar experience as she grows, too. With that in mind, I set out to find some websites that parents and teachers could use as the source for all sorts of Christmas crafts. Below is a list of websites that will offer hundreds of options for you to make Christmas crafts for kids.
Check out FaveCrafts.com for a great list of homemade Christmas crafts. http://www.favecrafts.com/Christmas-Decorations/42-Homemade-Christmas-Decorations/ct/1
Spoonful.com has a good list of a variety of Christmas crafts, including “Nightmare Before Christmas Crafts,” homemade Christmas cards and ornaments, Disney Christmas, and Christmas Stocking crafts. Check out the groupings at the link below.
