Arts and crafts activities for Christmas events
Children’s Christmas events can be a chaotic affair. But, provide children with a structured activity, and the opportunity to create something, and you could find it easier to cope. Popular arts and craft activities include:
- paper chains- a traditional decoration, paper chains can be a great way to get children attending your event to work together and get to know each other. They are also simple enough to make so children of all abilities can join in.
- paper plate Christmas trees- one of the biggest symbols of Christmas is the tree. And children can make an effective Christmas tree using only a paper plate and some imagination. The first thing they will need to do is paint the tree green, so be prepared for some mess!
- paper plate snowman- is there anything you cant make with a paper plate? Well, not only can you transform this into a Christmas tree, but a paper plate can also become a charming snowman too!
