Holidays are a blast to decorate for, and none is quite as fun to spruce up as Christmas! And as much as the snowy cheer gets you excited, your child is definitely ten times more ecstatic about the holiday. Glittering lights, shiny wrapping paper, soft snow – there’s so much to be excited for, and so much to prepare. Help your child to ring in the Christmas cheer with a DIY wreath they can make all by themselves! No hot glue, pins, or staples needed for these holiday crafts – just good, clean, safe fun!
Not only is this knotted “Joy” wreath a fun, untraditional creation, it’s also a great teaching tool! Your child can easily practice their bows and knots along the wire hanger frame of this festive décor piece.
This tissue paper Christmas wreath is great for all ages, including toddlers! Once you’ve wrapped the ring, place dots of glue along the wreath, and let your child cover them with crumpled wads of tissue paper — a game for your toddler, holiday décor for you!
For a great holiday group activity, construct a pom pom wreath with your children. With your help cutting the yarn, kids can enjoy this activity of creating and then arranging tiny, colorful pom poms!
Christmas Cutting and Festive Folding
All this colorful wreath requires is folding and snipping some construction paper, both great activities for young children! If they’re feeling creative, kids can add paper ornaments or bows to their handmade holiday wreaths!
For a two part wreath project, send your children on a backyard scavenger hunt for fallen pine cones. With a tulle-wrapped wreath ring, some Elmer’s glue, and some clever pine cone arrangement, you’ll have a fall-festive and holiday-ready piece for your home!
