Christmas Crafts for the Whole Family

Christmas Ornaments filled with Bath SaltEvery year I search for an easy Christmas craft that all of the kids and the adults in our family will enjoy creating together.

I gather the craft supplies that we will need to make a beautiful Christmas craft in advance, before our guests arrive for the holidays. Then, I am ready to break out the Christmas craft for the year when the moment of “we need something to do” strikes.

Choosing the Christmas Craft to Make

I am always watching for fast and easy crafts, bookmarking them online or in the actual books.

I try to find a craft that both little hands and big hands can create and hopefully not mess up. No one wants to be disappointed and I never want to discourage a crafter by selecting a project that is above their skill level. Therefore, I seek out something that is easy and requires very little or no crafting skill.

Christmas Craft Exchange

Christmas Crafting Party

I suppose, in a way, we have our own Christmas crafting party each year. No invitations necessary. Whichever family members are here at that given moment, get to participate. I have even pulled some of the guys away from their football games to join us. I know their ears are still tuned to the game, but they are there with us and taking part in our family Christmas crafting party. There is seriously no greater gift that we can give than the time we spend together.

Christmas Crafts for Everyone

There are lots of ideas and tutorials online for easy Christmas Crafts. I always watch and recommend crafts that hopefully will be inexpensive, are always fun & cute and definitely exchangeable.

Here are some that I just love and I know you will too!

Food Crafts

I understand that there are some of us who have family members who simply feel they do not have any ability to craft anything and the mere word “craft” frightens them away from the family fun. For you, I offer Food Crafts, or shall we call it Fun Food, lest they still shriek in fear.

    How fun! I craft with flour and sugar instead. Call it glitter and I just fall apart! I love the traditions we can create and pass down.

    Family activities are always great fun around the holidays. Now that my granddaughters are getting old enough, a craft project would be perfect. I’m so happy to find these fun and easy projects I can share with them.
