Creative Christmas Activities For Kids 

Introducing your child to the exciting world of art and craft is sure to open the doors of their vivid imagination. Children love playing around with colours and textures so they’ll take to this activity right away. 

If your child is too young to be handling a pair of scissors by themself, you could deal with the cutting part of the activity and have them glue all the pieces together. If, on the other hand, your child is older you could trust them with a small pair of craft scissors or plastic scissors designed for children. 

Your child will experience a sense of accomplishment once they complete this activity and you can even use the finished product as part of your Christmas decoration. This is sure to please your tot and leave them asking for more such activities.
