12 Days of Christmas Activities and Crafts for Kids

Want a special way to add a little holiday cheer this year?

Try the Twelve Days of Christmas Activities and Crafts for Kids! Your kids will have so much fun and you will spend quality time with them too. It is a win win. 

If you need ideas, try using Pinterest as a search for projects. There are a ton out there and you can certainly adapt most of them. If you are not crafty, you can probably find things around your house that you have to use. Or, you can also preorder craft kits from places like Michaels

I included links for most of the days to give you some inspiration and ideas. It is also a fall back fool proof idea to use if you want to go straight off the list!

Basic materials that would be good to have on hand
Colored cardstock or paper
Markers, colored pencils or crayons

Popsicle sticks
Pipe cleaners
Wiggly eyes
Pom poms
