These kid-friendly Christmas crafts are fun for kids and adults! 

I’m excited to be participating in’s 25 Days of Christmas Series. It’s 25 days of Christmas posts!  If you are as crazy about Christmas as I am, you really should go over and check it out.

It will soon be Christmas break for most children. What do you do with the kids if it’s raining or too cold for them to play outside? Have a craft party!

Here are three of my favorite kid-friendly Christmas crafts.

Is this not the cutest (end easy to make) snow family ever?

Kid Friendly Crafts - Snow Family

I’m sure you’ve seen a variation of these simple, cute, snowmen on Pinterest. But, I make mine a little different.

I use empty creamer bottles that are clear. Then, I fill them up with my cheapo faux snow and I think my little snow family looks adorable.

Supplies For Creamer Bottle Snowman – Kid Friendly Christmas Crafts

  • Empty creamer bottles (2 large and 1 small)
  • Epsom salt (my favorite faux snow!)
  • Buttons (old mismatched are best)
  • Wiggly Eyes
  • Felt or old sweater material for scarf
  • Glue Gun (an adult needs to use this)
  • Small Pom Poms

How To Make A Creamer Bottle Snow Family

Peel the label off of the creamer bottles, wash and dry well. Pour Epsom salt into the creamer bottles. Tap the bottom and watch the salt settle.  

Add more Epsom salt until it comes all the way to the top. Put the cap on securely.

Using a hot glue gun, add wiggle eyes, buttons, and a scarf. This is a good project to let your child’s imagination run wild.

Yield: 3 snowmen

No-Sew Homemade Christmas Ornaments kids Christmas crafts

These are so cute and easy to make. I’m all about easy when it comes to DIY Christmas Crafts.

Supplies To Make  Christmas Ornaments

  • Old denim (or material of your choice) jeans
  • Burlap ribbon
  • No-sew fabric glue (I use Aleene’s)
  • Scissors
  • Cookie Cutters (to trace out the pattern)
  • Fiberfill

Use a pencil and a snowflake Christmas cookie cutter to trace out two patterns on the wrong side of the burlap ribbon. Using scissors, cut out the two snowflakes. Glue around the outside edge of one of the burlap snowflakes. Leave a small opening for the stuffing. Press the two burlap snowflakes together. Let dry for 10 minutes.

Use the stuffing tool (came in my poly fiberfill) to gently stuff the ornament. Glue the small opening shut. 

Glue on a cord or ribbon for hanging. Let dry and you are done.

Acorn Santa Ornaments acorn Santa ornament

I can’t draw but I can make these cute little Santa acorn ornaments. I think they are adorable.

These acorn Santas are so easy to make and simply adorable!  

Paint the top third of the acorn red (this is Santa’s hat). Let dry.  

Paint a thin white line (fur) beneath the red hat. Let dry.  

Use flesh-colored paint to add a U shape under the white line. Let dry.  

Use a toothpick dipped in black paint to paint the eyes.   

With the white paint, draw a beard around the U-shaped face.  

Glue on a white pom and add a ribbon for hanging to the top of the hat. Let dry and hang on the tree.
