12 Kid Crafts for Christmas

Christmas Crafts for Kids

I can’t believe that there are only TWELVE days left until Christmas!  How did that happen?!?  I intended to do a roundup of my favorite 50 holiday kid crafts from around the web, but at this point it would be impossible to make them all!  So I decided that I would choose 12 crafts for the 12 days of Christmas.

The other day I asked my son what he wanted to do for our family Christmas party.  His options included reading Christmas books, singing Christmas carols, making and eating a holiday treat, watching a Christmas movie, or doing Christmas art.  And every time that I ask him he chooses Christmas art!  I guess I had better bust out the art supplies!

And now, without further ado, here are 12 Kid Crafts for the 12 Days of Christmas.

    I don’t mean to come off as snobby or anything as I ran by your site as I am planning things (yes, already) for our Advent and Christmas season… however, the 12 Days of Christmas are the 12 Days following Christmas Day – ending with “Epiphany” on Jan 6. I thought that I was finding crafts representing those days when I came here. But, I love your crafts just the same.

      I actually had no clue about that! Fascinating! I will definitely keep that in mind for the future! Way to go on planning ahead! That’s amazing!
