We love doing Christmas crafts with the kids. It is a great way to have them be creative and also have so much fun for the holidays. Not only are they going to love being able to sit down and create adorable projects and crafts, but they’ll then be able to showcase them and kick off the season and holiday spirit as well. While most of these they’ll be able to do on their own, be certain to stay by for adult supervision. You never know when you’ll be needed to cut, glue, dry, or just help with a color choice as well!
Here are 20 easy Christmas crafts for kids that are just too fun and festive to pass up!
