Five Easy and Fun Holiday Paper Crafts for Kids

The holiday season is here! There are numerous traditions many families enjoy this time of year, including decorating your tree and home. Another wonderful way to add to this tradition and engage with your children is through holiday crafts.

There is no shortage of fun holiday crafts to be found on the internet, but we wanted to share a few paper based ones that are cost-effective and don’t require a lot of preparation. Decorations made from paper can also be surprisingly beautiful.

Here are 6 holiday paper crafts that you just need paper, scissors, glue (for just one of the crafts) and pens for decorating. We suggest picking up a pack of coloured paper for these, but you could also use white paper you colour yourself or other paper like magazines and flyers you have at home.

Younger kids that can’t use scissors or quite fold the paper to make these decorations will still love adding their own touches with markers and pens to the decorations you put together.

Happy Holidays! Enjoy!
