You've seen them all over Pinterest. The Holiday Crafts For Kids. But how do you know which ones are worth your time? Over the past few years we've made them all. Now we're sharing our favorites with you. We're not crafting experts and while we think everything our kids create is A-Mazing, we do have a critical eye. So, may we present
We love this craft because the kids can pick out the items to go into the snow globe, the ribbon and glitter. The grown ups need to do the glue gun but the kids can dump in the glitter and then they love to see it shake around. In the picture above, we have secured a gift card so it's a fun presentation for a present as well! There are different variations with water or not and we have tried and liked both ways.

These ornaments are easy, fun and smell sooooo good. Just like making cut out cookies, you bake and then decorate. Tied with a cute ribbon, they make great additions to packages or as a gift all on their own! Click to make.
Since this is an honest post about holiday crafting, I'm going to tell you that these adorable trees which now live on our entryway table take a lot of patience. My kids did about 1/8 of the middle size tree. But they did love picking out colors and buttons and were great at directing me where to exactly place each 'ornament' on the trees. Besides taking some time, they turn out super cute and are even gift worthy. Click to make.
We made these trees on a canvas in 2010 with a 1 and 3 year old. Depending on wall space and the sizes of canvases, you can do single trees or family trees. For bitty kids, we think these turned out pretty great and even gifted them to the grandparents that year! Click to make.
Like Sugar Cookies but with MUCH more salt, these cutout ornaments are fun to make and decorate. Given as gifts or hung on your own tree, kids can paint and sprinkle them and admire their work for years to come. Click to make.
