Anyone with a 2 or 3 year old can make some pretty Christmas paper crafts! With this age group we are mainly focusing on handprint crafts. These make great keepsakes and are an excellent way to get your littles interested in crafting!

Christmas Crafts Older Kids Can Make with Paper

You can craft at any age you like but I feel the paper crafts below are better suited to kids older than 10 years old. Most of these are Christmas origami, which helps us make pretty decorations for our home at this time of the year! These Christmas paper crafts have more detailed instructions hence why they are suited to older children.

Please let me know what is your favorite between Origami Reindeer and Origami Poinsettia
