Christmas Crafts – Best Ideas To Keep Your Kids Entertained This Holiday Season

“I’m Bored” don’t you just love it, the kids complain all year about having to go to school but as soon as they get any time off they are bored. How do we as parents battle this inevitable boredom? Well we could do exactly what they want us to do and let them watch T.V. and play Video games for two weeks straight or we could find some fun activities that the whole family can do together.

There are thousands of different things that you can do with your family over the holiday season that will not only keep them entertained but will also creat great memories and traditions. As a kid growing up I can remember making our own Christmas Tree garland out of Cheerios and popcorn. This was mostly out of necessity as we didn’t have a lot of money to buy ornaments, but what ever the reason it still created great bonding experiences.

These days with the power of the internet the ideas are endless. Here are some of my favorites.

Christmas Craft Ideas

  • Gingerbread Christmas Tree Ornaments
  • Make your own wrapping paper out of news paper
  • Candy Cane Reindeer
  • Popcorn Garland
  • Make your own wreath

These are just some of the ideas I came across, with a little bit of searching I am sure you can find many, many more. Each idea is just that it is an idea always encourage your kids to use their imaginations and take the ideas and make them their own. You can take a general idea and change it to fit into your families traditions.

In thirty years most kids won’t remember what they got for Christmas but they will likely remember the time you spend with them and the traditions you make.
