12 Easy Crafts for Christmas

  1. Advent Calendar – When you have quite a few students, keeping track of their Advent Calendars can be challenging!  That’s why I love this idea – you can put as many treats in there as you have students and get rid of some of the hassle!  I just love making use of the card tubes too…
  2. Foil Decorations – They are really easy to make and most of the materials required are already in your home!  Lets get started!
  3. DIY Clothespin Magnets – Today I am here to share how to make clothespin magnets that you can make for yourself, give to your child’s teacher, co-workers, family and friends for under $3!
  4. Card Tree Ornaments – These cute ornaments could be made with students as a gift for parents/grandparents with either photos or special artwork shown on them!  Alternatively you could make use of old Christmas cards – I always save my favorite card designs – and this would be a really useful way to preserve them!
  5. Winter Blocks! – Best of all you can download our free template for these block designs and follow our instructions to make yourself a set of building blocks just like these!  They are very simple yet really effective!
  6. DIY Gift Tags – These little tags are made by stitching onto card – I just love the effect that stitching onto card makes – so rich yet traditional.  These would go wonderfully with a special gift to someone.
  7. Button Tree – Our latest craft to share with you is an adorable button Christmas tree – this is really easy to make and would make a super gift – or it would look lovely on your own shelf too I’m sure!
  8. Button Ornaments – I am really enthusiastic about the craft we have to share with you today – the Button Ornament craft.  I love it for two reasons – firstly it is made using only 2/3 materials, and secondly, it is just so easy!
  9. Dotty Chocolate Cookie Mix Jar – At Christmas I love to have some time to spend in my kitchen, cooking up treats for all the family!  By giving a gift like this cookie mix jar, you are allowing someone who is stretched for time to squeeze in some home-baked goodies for their loved ones too.  I love this recipe – the cookies are a delicious chocolate indulgence…
  10. Robin Handprints Activity – These ever-so-easy prints could be used to make cards, classroom decorations and so much more…parents just love this kind of memorabilia too – they are so cute and pretty for display and keepsakes.
  11. Snowman Christmas Card – We couldn’t do a Christmas Craft series and omit the essential Christmas Card!  We are loving the many ways that buttons can be used in crafts and as some of our previous crafts have included buttons, we figured you would have some left over like us  – making this card extra thrifty!
  12. Wooden Nativity Dolls – The Nativity Story is central to Christmas.  A great way for students to visualize the nativity story is through the Nativity Scene.  Today we are bringing you this paint-your-own Nativity Set with dolls that can be incorporated into students’ playtime!
