Easy Christmas crafts for kids

Super simple and great fun, these easy Christmas kids crafts will have you decking the halls with something better than holly this year.

You’ll need:

  • Wooden lolly sticks
  • Glue
  • String
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Sequins
  • Ribbon
  • Coloured paper, and other craft materials for decorations

Always cover surfaces with old newspaper and have an adult around to supervise.

Christmas tree decoration:

  1. Glue three green wooden lolly sticks together with PVA or super glue to form a triangle.
  2. Cut a piece of string and tie around the top of the tree to form a loop to hang.
  3. Wrap a pipe cleaner around the triangle diagonally as the tinsel on your tree.
  4. Add sequins for baubles and cut a star out of coloured paper to glue to the top.
  5. Cut a tree trunk out of some brown paper and glue to the bottom of the triangle – and you’re done!

A gift decoration:

  1. Glue four wooden lolly sticks together to create a square.
  2. Cut and tie a piece of string to create a loop for your decoration to hang from.
  3. Cut a pipe cleaner into two equal lengths and stick one horizontally across the middle of the square and the other vertically.
  4. Tie a bow with ribbon and glue to the top of the present.


Snowflake decoration:

  1. Paint three lolly sticks white. Once dry, stick the lolly sticks on top of each other to form a snowflake shape.
  2. Create a loop to hang your decoration up with and tie this around the middle of your snowflake or stick to one of the points.
  3. To finish, decorate with sequins, glitter, and stars.
