Christmas Crafts

Christmas is the perfect time to settle down to some good kids crafts: the days are short, the cold discourages playing outside, crafting will keep your kids busy and take away some of their impatience and excitement while they wait for Christmas Day to arrive, and with families and friends visiting your house there is no better time to display some of your children's crafty talents proudly!

We've got a huge collection of Christmas crafts here at Activity Village - too many to show you on just one page! Scroll down to find first crafts ordered by category and then more general Christmas crafting ideas  below.
