DIY Christmas Craft Ideas for Kids
1. Handprint Christmas Tree
Let’s start with the Handprint Christmas tree DIY Christmas kids crafts idea. An easy and simple way to help them make their own tree at home. Ask the kids to get an impression of their hand on a light cardboard sheet. Then cut the the light cardboard sheet drafts properly and neatly. Now take the green-colored sheets and cut the pieces with the help of the cardboard hand as a stencil. This will minimize the time and effort required. After this, on a triangular base of cardboard, start pasting the handprints with the help of glue from bottom to upwards. Once done, decorate your tree with hand made stars or you can even use ready-made crafts. Add glittery balls, stars, snowflakes, cotton for the snow effect, etc. You can also use a pyramid or a conical base for the real 3D effect.
2. DIY Pom Pom Garland Craft idea
Furballs are really difficult to make at home. Isn’t it? We say NO! They are a child’s play if you know the step by step guide and the elementary activities. For this DIY Christmas kids crafts idea, tell them to start with rolling the thread multiple times on a Fork. The threads must be tightly rolled and the turns must be as high as possible. This will increase the density of the furball and will make them soft and fluffy. Now, tie a piece of thread in the middle of the turns as shown in the third image and then remove the Fork carefully. Take a pair of scissors (not too sharp, for the safety of the children) and cut the ends of the thread giving it a round shape. With multiple furballs of different colors, make a pom pom Garland that you can hang on the walls. You may even deforate your Christmas tree with these pom pom balls.
3. DIY Paper Craft Idea for decoration
These simple crafts ideas are still in the trend for decades as it makes patterns which are perfectly symmetrical and requires a lot less work compared to completely drawing the pattern and then cutting it. You can divide the sheet equally into 4 or 8 parts by folding it. Fold the square colored sheet diagonally in half and then again in half. Thus, drawing only that much design and then cutting the whole pattern in a once go. This requires a lot of imagination and we would ask you and your kids to copy the designs available on the internet rather than going for your own complete design to avoid material wastage. You can even help your kids to think about new patterns to realise new kinds of patterns. You can also go for the above designs in the images.

Start with making a cone of a good stiffness, as it will act as a stand and support of the tree. Now cut circles of different shades of green. You can choose 2 or 3 colors for this. Higher the number of circles, the more attractive it will look. Paste them on the cone one by one starting from the bottom of the cone. Make sure you cover the whole white portion. You can paste half of the circle and leave the other half on the below circle without any glue on this part. Tell your kids to make 3-4 trees of different sizes as they will look more charming together.
