Decorate Gingerbread Houses

Make tiny gingerbread houses and let kids (and adults!) create their own custom home design from a bar of toppings like coconut snow, candy wafer shingles and cinnamon dot decorations.

Make Posable Paper Deer

Craft time is playtime with these moveable card-stock deer. You only need scissors and brads to turn this free printable pattern into an activity for all ages. For the smallest crafters, precut the brad holes to make assembly a breeze.

Create a Card-Making Station

Set up a holiday card-making station on a simple fold out or console table. Carry the decor theme to the station by adding coordinating elements.

Make Reindeer Printables

Print out these free printable designs and mount them on skewers. Kids will love pretending to be a reindeer, while adults will have fun using them as photo props.

Make Candy Necklaces

Set out bowls of Christmas candy alongside ribbons and string to encourage pint-sized guests to creat their own (edible!) bracelets and necklaces.

Make Coffee Filter Christmas Trees

Dip coffee filters in fabric dye for a trendy ombre effect then stack them to create a quick-and-easy tabletop Christmas tree. This party-time activity can double as a decorative favor that will last all winter long.
