And Christmas is more than just giving presents, but rather a time to spend with family and friends, so why not sit down with your family and friends and make Christmas craft with your kids.  It can be a lot of fun and they’ll appreciate the time you spend with them, during this busy season.

So here is my favorite Christmas craft ideas for 2016 and the full instruction can be found in the video link you’ll find on each picture.

7 Easy Christmas Crafts for Kids

Toilet Roll Santa

Toilet Roll SantaClearly, the Toilet Roll Santa is a fan favorite on my YouTube Channel and you’ll love it too. This jolly fellow is perfect for sitting in the Christmas tree or even just as a Christmas table decoration during your favorite meal.

And because your kids have made means it’ll bring some special meaning to Christmas.

Of course, this jolly fellow can be easily be turned into a jolly lady with a few simple touches of female bling, but your kids with likely add their own special touches which makes it even more special.

Time Required: 5-10 minutes

DIY Paper Xmas Trees

DIY Paper Christmas TreesThese DIY Paper Xmas Trees are so simple to make and if you’ve already got different colors of origami craft paper lying around you’ve already skipped the hard part.

However, this easy Christmas craft idea does require cutting, so just make sure your little ones are supervised during this stage if they aren’t familiar with scissors.

Or even you can do the cutting while they do the gluing  and you can both decorate these DIY Paper Xmas Tress together.

I did say these were easy Christmas crafts for kids, didn’t I?

Time Required: 5 minutes

Clothespin Reindeer

Clothespin ReindeerI think you’ll agree, this clothespin reindeer would look awesome on your Christmas tree and could be mistaken for a shop bought Christmas ornament. Yes, they look that good.

I made some with my kids and they turned out great. And as they made a few extra, they decided to give them to friends and as a special gift for their classroom teachers.

They were quick to make if you use a hairdryer to speed up the paint drying time.

Time Required: 10-15 minutes

Paper Plate Angel

Paper Plate AngelIf you need a tree topper this year, then why not let your kids make one for you? This Paper Plate Angel would look just perfect atop of any Christmas Tree.

And as the kids would have made it themselves, it’ll mean so much more when they place it atop of the decorated tree.

These paper plate angels would also make good sideboard ornaments or Christmas table decorations, so why not make a few to place around the house.

There’s a little detail work in these little angels, so this Christmas Craft idea is more suited to older boys and girls.

Time Required: 15 minutes

Toilet Paper Reindeer

Toilet Paper ReindeerIf the clothespin reindeer’s where a little too hard for small hands, then this toilet paper reindeer idea might suit your smaller children.

You’ll be surprised at how easy these are made and they can be decorated in any way you like.

Why not make enough toilet paper roll reindeer’s to pull Santa’s sleigh, but don’t forget about Rudolph with the red nose.

Time Required: 5-10 minutes

Clothespin Star

Clothespin StarThis Christmas Craft Idea is perfect if you’ve got some old wooden clothespin’s you were about to throw out. As you’ll be painting them and giving them extra bling it’ll be hard to tell them from the new ones.

Fortunately, wooden clothespins are still easy to find, and perhaps they are still making them just for the craft market. I’ve probably used more wooden clothespins for craft this year than I’ve bought for the clothesline.

Now you’ll need a particular type of wooden clothespin, so you can make them easily into a star. The old dolly pegs just won’t do in this craft.

Make a few and hang them around the home.

Time Required: 10-15 minutes

Paper Plate Wreath

Paper Plate WreathIf you’re needing a wreath for your door, then why not let the kids make you a paper plate wreath.  Ideally, your door needs to be undercover as these don’t last too long in the rain.

These paper plate wreath can take a little time to make, so why not pop on your favorite Christmas Carols and turn this craft making time into a real special occasion.

And if you’re patient, you could replace the crepe paper with real leaves or holly. And although this will take much more time to put together, the end result could be will worth the effort.

Time Required: 15-20 minutes
