These projects are designed with little fingers still learning fine motor skills, in mind. Simple projects that can be modified to encourage little fingers still learning to cut. More than crafting, these projects were designed to inspire the littlest artist to explore the creative process, build confidence and improve fine motor skills.
Over the years, we have made candy cane crafts, angel ornaments, handprint santas, clothes pin reindeer, tissue paper wreaths, and nature centerpieces. I’ve found it is always a good idea to have a simple, seasonal craft project in mind when you have a group of kids for a holiday. It brings them together and adds an element of tradition to the festivities.
REMEMBER: The holidays should be about creating positive lifelong memories rather than the gift exchange or cookie creation..
Coloring pages are wonderful but why not turn them into a creative kids activity or craft? The weather keeps us indoor more...so we pull out our craft supplies and start creating handmade holiday kids crafts for family and friends.
