What do you think of when you think Christmas? Santa? The Christmas tree? Rudolph? Candy canes?
These are all things that come to my mind… and I’m positive that’s what my kids are thinking about (beyond presents!) when they think of Christmas. What’s the best way to get them excited about Christmas (as if that’s needed….)?!
Do some Christmas crafts to get them in the mood!
But, what are the best Christmas crafts to do with kids?
Here are 25 Christmas crafts I found that I absolutely love, including Christmas trees, Santa and his reindeer, and of course, candy canes.

Whether you decide to make christmas ornaments, Rudolph, or popsicle stick christmas trees, these would all make incredibly cute Christmas gifts to give to family and friends. Or use them in the house as decor for the holidays!

When the big tree is done being decorated, why not give the kids their own homemade version of a tree too?
Grab your crafting stash of glue, pipe cleaners, buttons, paper plates, glitter and pom poms!
