Are you looking for the perfect Christmas craft to keep the kids busy while the snow is falling? Well look no further! Here are 3 holiday crafts that are sure to keep you and your kids busy and warm this winter season.

1. Door Snowman (Via: The Chirping Moms

What You’ll Need:

  • Orange Paper
  • Black Paper
  • Red Paper (Or Wrapping Paper)
  • Tape

Find a white door in your house (or the closest thing to white) and start your snowman prep. Cut out nose, eyes, buttons, scarf, and mouth. You can get creative with this one and add a little bit more flourish if you so choose like a hat, pipe, and arms. Use tape to place on door.

2. Popsicle Stick Reindeer (Via: Crafts By Courtney

What You’ll Need:

  • Glue or Tape
  • Button or Fuzzy Craft Ball
  • Eyes (Or use a black marker)
  • Twine
  • Markers
  • Craft Sticks

This Christmas craft is perfect to display around the home or even as an ornament for the Christmas tree. Color the craft sticks and set aside. Next, glue the sticks into a triangle shape, allowing enough room at the top to make ears for the reindeer. Glue red button (or craft ball) as the nose and attach craft eyes (or color little black circles).

Cut a small piece of twine and attach to the back. Allow everything to dry, and congrats you have made Rudolph.

3. Paper Plate Christmas Tree (Via: Kid Friendly Things To Do)

What You’ll Need: 

  • 2 Paper Plates
  • Green Paint (or markers)
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Decorations

This festive tree is super easy and super fun. Paint both paper plates until evenly coated, and allow to dry. (You can also use markers and crayons to color instead of paint.) Cut one plate in half and set aside. Cut the next plate in half, and then cut one of those halves in half. You will have 3 large and 2 small pieces.

Next, layer the plates (see picture above), glue them together and decorate with pom poms and ribbons. Allow everything to dry and admire your masterpiece.
