13 Fun DIY Christmas Crafts For Kids to Make

When I think about Christmas I sometimes think about all of the different crafts that I would make in elementary school. Who knew that when I became an adult, Christmas crafts would still be a thing? Pretty cool that you don’t need to be in school to have your kids work on these Christmas crafts.

13 DIY Christmas Crafts for Kids

The goal of these crafts is not only to be fun but also something that you wouldn’t mind keeping around your home.

I know as a parent you’re supposed to love everything that your child makes but you spent enough time and energy making sure your home is decorated to your liking. There is no reason why you can’t expect some level of quality from your kid’s crafts. Especially since they are going to ask you to bring them out for the next couple of years.

Maybe that makes me evil.

I simply like to think I’m respecting the Christmas spirit to the fullest extent.
