Christmas Craft for Kids-Home Improvement Thursday

Christmas Craft for Kids-Home Improvement Thursday

We love Christmas in our house, and Christmas craft is high on our list of things to do in the lead up to Christmas. This year though, we wanted to branch out and do some different things. I put the call out to my blogging buddies, and I must say they did not disappoint! I have so many wonderful and easy ideas to share with you.

12 Craftabulous Christmas Craft for Kids Ideas

  1. Jason-Scott from Don’t Boil The Sauce, has created these Christmas spice bags, or jars, so that you can smell Christmas all year round. Easy to make, I like the thought of the smell of the beautiful fragrant herbs and spices.

2. My good mate Amanda from Cooker And Looker, shared Salt Dough recipe for making Salt Dough Christmas Ornaments. Such a simple idea that creates such a personal touch to the tree or would look gorgeous added to the wrapping of a gift.


3. Tegan from Musings of the Misguided, has this super simple Toilet Roll Christmas Tree. Younger kids would love how simple this is, with a little help from Mum or Dad, this would be lots of fun to make.


4. Michelle from Keep Calm and Get Organised has instructions to make this gorgeous advent calendar, especially helpful in houses like ours where we don’t eat chocolate ordinarily. It’s a bonus that it’s pretty too.



5. These Giant Holly Christmas Decorations made by Lorelei from Craftmumship, are so easy to make! Kids of all ages would love to make these ones.


6. Kirsten from Kirsten and Co, shared her Really Easy Christmas Cookie Recipe. Though regular visitors to Kirsten’s blog may be disappointed that there is no surprise visit from her hubby Guns, your kids will love being in the kitchen with you to make these 6 ingredient cookies.


7. These super cute Christmas Angels have been created by Mandy from My Lovely Little Nest. Simple to make from cupcake liners, these would provide hours of fun for all involved.


8. Got a bored toddler? Love Christmas craft? Then this post is for you. Carol from My Bored Toddler, has shared these very simple to make Toddler Made Christmas Decorations, that are perfect for little hands.



9. Where’s My Glow blog shared How To Recycle Old Christmas Cards into Homemade Christmas Baubles. A really inexpensive activity that with a little help, most ages could do.


10. It’s seems Kimba from Kimba Likes, enjoys Christmas craft as much as we do in this house. Her compilation of Christmas Craft for Kids is a great source of inspiration!

11. If you enjoy chocolate, and are looking for a new way to present it at the Christmas table, then this Rocky Road Christmas tree from What’s Cooking Ella, will be sure to impress. Much easier than it looks, I am sure it would be delicious as well.


12. Last but not least, my kids are going to love this Christmas DIY Peppermint Gak post by Ali Coultas.


There are so many fabulous bloggers, with so many wonderful ideas on how to keep the kids entertained this holiday season, I’ve only shared 11, but I found so many more. I’ve shared these today, as Home Improvement Thursday doesn’t just need to be about physical home improvement, there are wonderful ways to improve the mood of your home, which is as important as anything. Happy kids make for a happy home ?

If you are looking for another idea, why not head to Sarah’s blog TOMFO and print yourself off this free printable that she shared last week.



Alternatively Teacher by Trade, Mother by Nature is a part of a Blog Collaboration with some wonderful help over the Christmas period.
