10 Kid-Friendly Christmas Crafts

By Classy Clutter on Nov 26, 2012

In our church, we are encouraged to spend time on Monday evenings with our families. It's really up to each family how they choose to do it. Some have a gospel centered lesson, some work on their families' emergency preparedness, some go out to the movies or somewhere fun. I love it because there is really no right or wrong way to do it as long as you spend time with your family! How great is that!?

The reason I bring it up today is because I'd love to share what we plan on doing this month for each Monday. For the rest of the year, I will plan our family's "Family Home Evenings" around teaching my kiddos (2 and 4 years old) about CHRISTmas!

I plan to incorporate a Chirstmasy lesson and do a Christmas craft or recipe with them. Tonight, we are going to talk about the Christmas Star and why it is our tradition to place a star on top of our Christmas Tree. We are going to make this handprint Christmas tree that my son has been dying to make since we bought a canvas and paint on Saturday. :) 

Here are some other super fun Christmas crafts and ideas for kids!
