25 Kid-Friendly Christmas Activities

This year, Christmas season has been so amazing with the littles.  They’re really into the lights, snow (which we don’t get), and Christmas trees.  I wanted to find some fun projects for us to decorate the house and tree, and a fun Christmas tree too.  The projects in the list can either be done by the kiddos alone, or with some parental help – but always with supervision.  Five words: glue, glitter, and pom poms.  Don’t ever trust them with glitter.

    Great ideas for the kids and me to use for our annual Christmas ornament craft night. We usually have two trees…a “fancy” one in the living room upstairs with all the store bought ornaments we’ve collected over the years, and a “handmade” tree downstairs in the den by the fireplace with ornaments we’ve made. Every year we add at least one new set of ornaments to that one. It is my favorite tree!
