What’s the Project? Looking for a fun and simple Christmas kid’s craft? These little holiday character pots are easy to make and turn out really cute. The kids will love it!
It’s a Christmas miracle-I’ve got a new project for you that I did myself and it’s here today! It’s been a while since I did that. I needed a Christmas kid’s craft for a family party recently-something that could work for 4-year-olds up to 13-year olds and this is what we ended up doing.
We decorated mini flower pots in various Christmas characters. I’ve got an Elf, Santa, a Reindeer and a Snowman for you! This is a fun and simple kid’s craft and I think they will love it!
They are a very simple Christmas kid’s craft to make. You just need a few things and your creativity.
Here’s a closer look at each of them. Here’s the elf (which my 13-year-old says is creepy):
A cute little Santa:
And a snowman:
You could make these for any sort of kids party! The paint dries pretty quickly too, which is nice so that you can transport them soon after making them.
Here’s a look at how.
Christmas Kid’s Craft-Character Candy Pots:
- Mini flower pots
- Paint Brushes
- Googly eyes
- Pipe Cleaner
- Ribbon or other embellishments
- Hot glue or craft glue
Really, you can kind of let the kids do what they want to make these. My boys go VERY creative! One actually made his just a Santa hat which was fun. Another decided to do a Pokemon character. They can do what they want!
Just start by painting the pot and then letting it dry.
Add embellishments. If you are using hot glue, you’ll want to help the kids for this part.
A couple of tips for you. I painted felt to get the right color for the Elf ears. You could use cotton balls or fur for Santa’s beard if you want.
Then fill with candy and enjoy this Christmas kid’s craft!
