December 20, 2016

Easy Christmas art craft activities for kids summarized here are specially curated for young to older kids. While now I spend most of my time at home, I couldn’t stand my girl to keep disturbing me so surely I’ll find something for her to do. Here are some ideas referring to various sources. Hope you can enjoy it too with your kids! 🙂


Easy Christmas Art Craft Activities for Kids

1. Coloring the Tree and Stick the Ornaments

For quick play, I just print the blank tree, let Ariella color it while I print the ornaments. I cut them off and let her stick it with the glue. TADAAA! It helps to occupy her time for 30-45 minutes. Not bad :p

2. Handprint Christmas Tree

I definitely will try this one. Get the blank canvas or even A3 paper from Eko then voila! With her cute hand painting, this would fun and pretty for home decor!


3. Christmas Tree with Pom Pom

This one is also pretty easy. Cut the green origami paper into a christmas tree, then prepare the red, yellow, blue, or any color you want with clothespins and pompom. Tadaaa, but I guess they can finish this one quite quickly. LOL!


4. Fingerpaint Christmas Card

I love the idea to convert the art into Christmas cards or even in a frame! Let them do the finger-painting while we make the ‘cable’. I can’t want to try it!


5. Artsy Christmas Card

This post here is very inspiring. The point is to let the children draw or color anything they want, then we turn the art into the Christmas card like the above photo! We can creatively create another type of art we want, as the sky is the limit! 🙂


6. Christmas Tree Art

Draw the triangle as the Christmas tree, then let the children do their art using any sensory play, let’s say: glitter glue, marker, tape, water-colour, finger paint, or anything. Cut the triangle and fold it into half, and tadaaaa..there they are!

In the article, the writer also suggest great idea to cut it into half to play Christmas tree matching game 🙂

7. Peel and Stick Christmas Tree

To create this genius Christmas tree, you’d just need:

  • Colorful felt (in Indonesian: kain flanel),
  • Chalk to draw the pattern,
  • Scissors,
  • Glue gun,
  • Velcro (to stick it to the wall)


  1. Draw the tree using chalk on felt, then cut it.
  2. Use the velcro to attach it to the wall.
  3. Get creative to create the ornaments, use the scissors and glue gun.
  4. Let the children have fun.
  5. You can sit and sip the tea 🙂

According the writer from this blog, the felt sticks to the other felt so you won’t need to velcro to sticks the felt ornaments to the felt tree. I have not tried but if it’s right, then this tree would be super perfect!


8. Reinder Hat

Kids would definitely love to make something they actually can wear. This reindeer hat is perfect to let them experience Christmas festive.

9. Playdough Christmas Tree

Of course, we will not leave playdough behind. This sensory play is available in almost all houses with children. Use the cookie cutter to make the Christmas tree shape, then provide them with some beads to experiment and play. This would be fun!


10. Snowman Door

The last but the the least, this one is perfect for you if your child is crazy about snowman. At least you can let the snowman there until Christmas is over :p
