The Best Christmas, Hanukkah and Winter Craft Kits for Kids
Get your children excited for the season with activities and projects for Christmas, Hanukkah and winter.
It’s that time of year again — winter is coming and children have days, sometimes weeks, off from school. With vast access to technology and electronics, it’s easy for them to spend hours watching television or playing video games. If you're looking for ways to keep your children occupied and entertained without so much time in front of the screens, you’ve come to the right place. From DIY ornaments and candles to snowman clay modeling, we’ve rounded up our favorite activities for all ages that will keep kids busy for hours, boost their creativity and are perfect for the whole family to enjoy together.
Let your children put their own spin on the Christmas tree with this DIY kit of 40 child-safe wooden craft ornaments in four winter and holiday shapes: snowflake, classic round, Christmas tree and stocking. The kit also includes 40 red and white twines, 40 color bells and four color pens for maximum decorating possibilities.
Decorate your home for Hanukkah with three themed suncatchers — menorah, dreidel and Star of David — your children can make themselves. With blue and white vellum paper, suction cups and easy-to-follow instructions included, this project is both simple and creativity-evoking.
What's better than going to the store and buying your children holiday-themed pajamas? Perhaps giving them the opportunity to design their own. Your children will be able to personalize their own nightwear with six fabric pens to choose from.
Adults and children alike will love crafting their own snowflake lanterns that will brighten any room and can be kept up all winter long. This kit comes with two panels, three sheets of 222 transparent stickers, four pieces of tracing paper, instructions and a QR code to a how-to video.
