I always like to ask the children to participate in the ideas before we get started. If you children are willing help them find easy Christmas crafts the entire group will enjoy doing. My family likes to paint and we like to take turns by passing the craft around to different family members. Sometimes we paint plaster Santa figures, paint by number pictures of make clay elves.
Easy Christmas crafts can be made from pipe cleaners and acrylic beads are very pretty and easy for kids to make. Try using red and white beads to create little candy cane to hang on the tree. These are fun to make and look great when finished.
Pipe cleaner come in many colors including gold and silver and are perfect for making easy Christmas crafts. Try twisting and bending them into little reindeer or use them for antlers on clothespin ornaments. Even small children enjoy working with pipe cleaner for all sorts of craft projects. Popsicle stick are another favorite choice for small children and adults. I always like to use them to make Christmas stars with a little bite of glue and some string for hanging.
