Looking for a fun Christmas craft to do with your kids?
Well who doesn’t like Santa’s Reindeer? This is an easy and cute craft to do with little kids. It is a reindeer pot that can hold candy or other treats! You can make any size that you want. All that you will need is scissors, craft glue, Terracotta clay pots (2”-5”), plastic eyes, red pom-poms, and two shades of brown craft foam or construction paper. Now that you know what you need, here is how you make it!
First, with one shade of brown, cut the antlers to match the size of your pot. (It is fun to use your child’s hand print as the pattern for the antlers!)
Then, cut the ears with the other brown.
Attach their ears to the back of the pot, and then add the antlers.
Glue the eyes and nose to the front,
Finally, fill the pot with candy, nuts or other goodies!
It is that simple!
Another fun craft to make is Candy Cane Ornaments!
This is a unique craft that is very easy!
All you need is 13 old puzzle pieces [maybe ones from a puzzle that is missing some pieces], glue, ribbon, red and white paint, and a bell!
First, paint the puzzle pieces on one side and let it dry, then do the other side. [In the example they painted 6 pieces red and 7 pieces white.]
Then, place the white pieces in the shape of a candy cane a little spaced out.
After that, glue the red pieces over lapping the white ones. [like it is in the photo]
Once it is dry, cut a piece of ribbon, loop it, and glue it to one side of the candy cane. Also, cut another piece of ribbon to make into a bow, and glue it as seen in the picture above.
Finally, glue the bell down and your ornament is complete!
