Crafting Tips for Kids

The holidays are filled with fun and activities. We have some crafting tips for kids which will keep them indoors and happily engaged on a cold, snowy day. The following is just one example of many crafts that can be used as gifts, ornaments, or just for the fun and games.

Popsicle Stick Snowflake Craft

This fun craft activity is simple and requires a few supplies to make. When finished, it can be used as a Children’s Christmas Tree Ornament. All you will need are popsicle sticks (3-4), glue, glitter, and a piece of string.

Take a popsicle stick and drop a dab of glue in the center. Then layer the sticks on top of each other to get a snowflake’s shape. Any number of sticks can be used to get your desired shape. Evenly spread glue on all the popsicle sticks. Sprinkle glitter of different colors onto the wet glue. Shake off excess glitter and allow to dry. Glue a piece of string on the back of your glitter snowflake so you can hang them up!

This crafting activity can engender the spirit of the holiday season and keep the kids engaged while they await the big festivities.
