Free Christmas Crafts for Kids

Here are some more free Christmas crafts for kids, these ones are geared towards the older children.

Seeming older children may get bored of our other easy crafts for kids.

We thought we would show some instructions for some more advanced crafts, to give a little bit of a challenge.

These are a little more detailed crafts for that older age group of kids.

Or they require some tools that could be dangerous when operated by a young child, like a hot glue gun.

Of course, our crafts are never limited to an age group. With some supervision these can be created by any age!

Let Us Teach You: Easy Christmas Crafts for Kids 


Baby Food Jar Snowglobe

These free Christmas crafts for kids are alot of fun to make, and snow globes are always a lot of fun regardless! These can be made with many age groups, but do involve a little extra supervision for a younger group.

I made these originally in the 6th grade, with adult supervision. These are great little keepsakes to decorate with over the years. I think my mom still has mine!

They can be made in all sizes. You can use mason jars, pickle jars, or any jar for that matter.

What You Will Need:

  • Baby food jar
  • A plastic Christmas figurine
  • Sparkles
  • Ribbon
  • Baby oil or Mineral oil
  • Hot Glue Gun

Step #1:

Hot glue gun your figurine onto the inside of the baby jar lid. Set this aside and allow to dry thoroughly before sealing into jar. This will take approximately 15 minutes.

Step #2:

Once the figurine is dry, fill the baby jar with baby oil, or mineral oil.

Step #3:

Add your sparkles or fake snow to the oil.

Step #4:

Place a small bead of hot glue around the inside of you lid. Place the lid on the jar and tighten securely.

Step #5:

Glue a decorative ribbon around the edge of your jar.

Jazz It Up!!

Use glass paint and paint something decorative on the outside of the baby jar, like snowflakes or ground scenery to go with your figurine.
