Top 9 Christmas Activities for Kids


Hi Everybody! I am Stephanie from somewhat simple and I am here to feature my favorite top 9 activities for kids and Christmas crafts!

There are a ton of Christmas crafts out there, but the projects I am featuring today are not only adorable, but they are super SIMPLE and fun activities for kids! Most of the projects only require a few materials to complete, and they are great for kids of all ages.

Activities for Kids

Here is my list, in no particular order…
1. Five Finger Snowmen Ornament, from Full of Great Ideas ~ A friend of mine had a version of this on her tree years ago and I loved it then, and love it now!  The cute little poem it comes with is so darling. This makes a sweet little gift.
2. Graham Cracker Gingerbread House, from Martha ~ I’ve seen these all over blogs lately, but Martha has several design options and a yummy frosting recipe that is too good not to duplicate!
3. Takeout Box Snowman, from Blue Cricket Design ~ With a few cardstock shapes and some glue, you can transform a takeout box into something fabulous!
4. Christmas Crayons, from Sew Totally Smitten ~ I posted a tutorial for how to recycle broken crayons, but this idea uses Christmas molds and is completely adorable! My kids love making their own crayons- I can’t wait to make these in all kinds of shapes and sizes!
5. Snowman Cookies, from Crazy Domestic ~ These are almost too cute to eat!
6. Pom Pom Ornaments, from Skip to My Lou ~ Elmers glue, pom poms and cardboard from a cereal box- simply adorable, I love it!
7. Shaving Cream Snowman, from Parties and Holidays ~ The shaving cream dries puffy- my kids would love that!
8.Printable Nativity, from Catholic Icing ~ Download, print, color and tape- it doesn’t get any easier than this!
9. Thumbprint Tree Cards, from Brixton Life ~ Get your kids involved on making Christmas cards this year. So cute!

I’d love to have you stop by somewhat simple and see where I document my creative side- the fun stuff I do with my kids and the fun stuff I do when the kids are asleep!  Here is just a handful of projects you’ll find if you stop by and say “Hello!”

I post new projects and recipes every weekday and host the hottest link party every Thursday partnered with an awesome giveaway! We have over 400 links every week, so stop by, add your own, or get inspired by what you find!

Laurie, thanks for having me today! Have a great holiday everyone!
