Pick up a fabric scrap and wrap it around the gingerbread man’s neck. Decorate the man with a few craft scraps. Put googly eyes for that funky finishing touch!
#3 Snow Globe

Now glue two mini candy canes for the ear effect. Your candy canes reindeers are now ready!
#8 Christmas Candle jars
Ask your kids to brighten up your runway to make sure that the Santa has no trouble finding your house on Christmas Eve. Pick up a few mason jars and apply glue in their interiors. Pour glitters inside and roll the jar, so that the glitter spreads uniformly. Place artificial glowing candles and decorate your runway!
#9 Popsicle Stick Snowflakes
It’s a known fact that some of the easiest crafts for kids involve Popsicle sticks. How would we miss out on that? Here is a way for your kids to create a snowflake with Popsicle sticks. Paint the Popsicle sticks with the colour of your choice. Once they are dry, stick them together with glue in alternate positions. Now spray paint on them using a toothbrush. To finish it up, attach a string and hang it to the Christmas tree or in the exteriors of your house.
#10 Mini X-MAS Tree
What’s Christmas without a Christmas tree? Help your munchkin create a super cool Mini X-Mas tree with just paper strips. Cut paper strips and then glue the paper strips together, placing them in a cardboard, alternating each strip’s direction to create a full, rounded design. Top your X-Mas tree with a glittered cardboard star.
