Holiday Crafts

Here is a list of some of my favourite holiday crafts – great for those winter days when you want to cozy up inside and get creative : ) 

 

Christmas Wreaths

This one can be a little bit messy but a lot of fun and a great keepsake. (Craftingismylife.org)

Here’s another great wreath craft for those that prefer a little less mess. (mynameissnickerdoodle.com)

 

Snowflake Crystals

This one is also a bit of a cool science experiment. You can buy pipe cleaners from your local dollar store and borax is available in the cleaning aisle of most grocery stores. (stevespanglerscience.com)

Snow Paint

This is a really fun one that kids love. It’s a lot of fun just making it, and then even more fun to paint with it.  The recipe calls for peppermint extract but you can also make a scent free version that works just as well. (growingajeweledrose.com)

Holiday Fun with Popsicle Sticks

Here are some fun and easy popsicle stick tree ornaments. (onelittleproject.com)

Here is another great popsicle craft for those who celebrate Hanukkah. If glitter isn’t your think, you can also get some little sickers, mini-pompoms or rhinestones from the dollar store to decorate these – see the popcicle stick craft above for decoration inspiration ; )  (mamapeapod.com)

Snow Slime

Slime is always a huge hit for kids of all ages here at St. Alban’s. Here is a great sparkly snow slime. In this tutorial they store the slime in cute plastic tree ornaments (I’ve seen these at Michael’s craft store) , but you can also store your slime in any old jar or container if you aren’t able to track down the ornaments.  (iheartcraftythings.com)

If no one in your family wears contact lenses (the recipe above call for a bit of contact solution), try this recipe instead. (notimeforflashcards.com)
