Felt is the perfect material for kids’ Christmas crafts, as it’s inexpensive and easy to work with. There are loads of different colours to choose from, and you’ll find lots of festive project ideas in Felt Fantastic, including these fun mini Christmas trees! Children love characters, and gingerbread men are a firm favourite around Christmas time. These fabric gingerbread men from Stitch At Home will last a little longer than the edible variety, and they’re simple enough for older children to sew.

Bunting is great all year round, and there’s a fantastic bunting project from Sewing For Kids that’s easy enough for children to make. It even includes plain flags for the kids to draw motifs on, so they can make it suit the season by adding festive images. There are so many clever craft ideas in Handmade Scandinavian Christmas that use materials you’ll find around the house and in the garden.

Washi tape is great for making quick Christmas decorations, and we love these festive hanging ornaments from Washi Tape Christmas. Fill the frames with family photos or use them as tags and write the recipient’s name in the centre. Christmas colours don’t have to be limited to red and green! There are loads of fun and colourful Christmas crafts for kids in Kids Make Christmas, like these quirky pine cone owls that have been painted in bright shades and hung with ribbon.

It’s a well known fact that kids love baking – almost as much as they love to decorate their creations! So whip up a simple batch of vanilla cookies and get the kids to help. We love this star cookie stack from Cake Decorating With The Kids – and the kids will too! Cupcakes and Christmas go together perfectly, and decorating cupcakes can be lots of fun for the kids during this busy time. Ask them to pipe festive motifs, like these trees and presents from Bake Me I’m Yours… Cupcake, or get creative with their own ideas.
