Christmas break is almost here! We've gotten our Christmas tree and decorated the whole house, and now the kids are counting down the days until their break from school begins. It's always a challenge to keep your kiddos entertained when they are out of school, which is why we like to fill the time with crafts.
We've found that Mod Podge
is always our best friend when it comes to crafting. This holiday season, and even all year round, keep your children busy with these fun crafts listed below. The finished products can be used to decorate your own space, or would make perfect gifts for family and loved ones!
We love the non-traditional color palette of these handpainted ornaments from Tell Love and Party
. Mod Podge Matte gives such a nice finish to these ornaments!
For those girly-girls out there, how about these adorable glittery bows from Mod Podge Rocks
for Christmas gifts? I am a huge fan of personalized gift wrapping, and these are the perfect addition for presents under the Christmas tree!
My little Charlotte loves making jewelry, so we really can't go wrong with jewelry crafts in our household. For these cardboard beads from The Crafted Life
, you can choose to stick with a bright, bold color palette for a gaudy necklace or you can paint them in a traditional holiday palette and string them together for a unique garland!
I can't get over the resourcefulness of this project from Mod Podge Rocks
, using old toilet paper rolls to create a one-of-a-kind Christmas tree plaque! You can't go wrong with glitter and sparkles, either.
This garland from A Beautiful Mess
is simple and beautiful - kids always enjoy making garlands! The repetitive nature of stringing keeps them entertained for a while, and the more they make, the more square footage the garland can span!
This craft from Mod Podge Rocks
is great if you have leftover Christmas fabric scraps that you don't know what to do with. Your children will have a blast using Mod Podge Extreme Glitter!
Plain glass ornaments are so beautiful, but they're so much more fun with a little pizazz added! I love that this tutorial from Hello Natural
includes polka dots, angled lines and stripes - lots of variety here!
I hope you have fun crafting with your kids this holiday season!
