    Default Christmas Craft for toddlers?

    Hey,

    My daughter loves craft so I thought we could start doing some christmas themed craft. Problem is, I'm not very crafty at all (and I mean at all!) and I can't think of anything to do.

    Does anyone know any good websites I can have a look at?

    Thanks

    Hi ejandakrose,

    I don't have a website for you but have just finished doing christmas cards with my DD who is a similar age to yours. I cut out christmas tree shapes approx 10 cm high covered them in glue and then got her to sprinkle 'decorations' all over the tree and then glued them onto a card.

    The decorations were heaps of hole puches of tissue paper and christmas wrapping. Chopped up fine tinsel and glitter. Put the glue covered trees into a big dish when you are sprinkling to help stop the bits going every where..

    Have a great time getting crafty.

    Cut a hole in a paper plate to make a wreath shape, paint with green paint and decorate with Christmas stickers or similar

    oh you could get styrofoam balls and stick sequince on make a pudding or just pretty baubles!

    they have tree styrofoam shapes too i did one wrapped it in all ribbon last year looks cool kinda looks like a santa hat hehe

    oh i made a big styro ball and glued doilies on it but squished them in close so they are ruffled looks really effective!

    Today we painted pine cones white and sprinkled glitter on them. Also tied a piece of string at the top and it can hand on your tree or elsewhere.

    Very simple yet quite fun
