Do your children love making fun Christmas crafts as much as mine do?
There’s just something so fun about them getting to make their own special creations — while learning more about the true Christmas story in the process!
But of course you don’t want to do the same exact crafts again and again. Sometimes you want to switch it up. Do something new. And today’s post is full of ideas for how you can do just that.
I tried to pick crafts that were relatively easy — no special skills required — as well as crafts that would be relatively inexpensive, with materials that would be pretty easy to find.
And of course, each of these Christian Christmas crafts had to help tell part of the Christmas story!
(Plus they’re all seriously cute)

Hey Brittany. How did you know what you wanted to do with you life? the reason why I ask this is because I want to do two different thing that are completely different. One has to do with plants and the other has to do with animals. I love to do both of them but how do I do that.
These are so cute! I love that they are Christian-themed, but still kid-friendly.
Thank you! I hope that you enjoy making them with the kiddos in your life!
