Kid-friendly Christmas DIY

Posted by Hedi Schreiber on

Kids love the magic os snowglobes, but the obvious danger of glass makes parents anxious. This simple DIY involves a small plastic jar with a lid, a form of fake snow (a white powder, glitter, styrofoam balls etc.), a small decoration like this model tree, and a form of glue to fasten the lid to avoid spills. This tiny snowglobe puts the magic of snowglobes safely in your little one’s hands.

A less expensive alternative to ornaments is a homemade present box. Simply find some smaller boxes or cube-shaped objects laying around your house, find some wrapping paper (this is a great way to make use of scraps of paper) and ribbons. This is a great way to teach your child how to wrap presents and add unique items to your tree.

 

Capturing memories and adding them to a Christmas tree makes it so personable and cheery. With a polaroid camera, send your child around to snap a photo of things that make them happy, and hang the pictures up along the tree. These already come out as the perfect size, but you can also use a regular camera or phone and print them out smaller.

 

Tags are a quick and easy Christmas craft. All that is needed is paper, scissors and string or ribbon. Your child can write a seasons greeting, note to Santa, or just a cute scribble. Then pierce a hole through the paper and tie the ribbon/string. This can be used as an ornament, a name tag on a gift, around a centerpiece.

 

A fun way to make use of all the cardboard from amazon boxes and toys is to design a playhouse. Let your child imagine a fun building in a small corner of your house, or closet like pictured above, and measure out how much room and cardboard you will need. This will be a fun family project that lets the child and the parent flex their imagination. Have fun bringing it to life and add special touches like paint, drawings, a window, and even door.
