I have a love-hate relationship with crafts for kids. Pro? My kids love to make stuff. Con? Sometimes, projects hold their attention for exactly a minute and a half, leaving me with a table full of half-finished concoctions of paper, glue and pipe cleaners. Here are 25 super easy Christmas crafts for kids that are in my arsenal for this holiday break.

My two boys are home from school for almost three weeks and I need to keep them entertained and (kind of) off of their screens. Bonus? Most of these crafts are made with things you already have in your house or things that are easy and/or inexpensive to get. There really is no reason to spend a ton of cash on expensive craft supplies. The ones my kids have loved the best are made with scraps, recyclables or stuff we have around the house.
These are great crafts to do with your kids around the kitchen table or even with a larger group…think classrooms, scout troops or Sunday school groups.

The upside to all of these crafts – besides how cute they are – is that they're simple and they turn out looking like they do in the pictures. More or less, anyway. I think that definitely helps kids to enjoy their finished product.
