23 Sensational Christmas Crafts for Kids by NotSoIdleHands.com

When I was a kid, I loved when the holidays rolled around, cuz that always meant we got to make fun Christmas crafts at school and graham cracker gingerbread houses at home (loaded up with tons of frosting and candies since we were allowed to eat it right away if we wanted). Back then, there weren’t ready-made kits and so we made due.

Now that we have kiddos of our own, I love finding fun crafts we can do together (or to keep them busy while I frantically do chores before guests come to stay). I have a huge, and ever growing,  list of crafts for them and I try to cross off at least a few each year. Here’s a bunch of my favs….even though we haven’t gotten to all of them yet :)
