20+ Super-Easy Christmas Crafts for Kids

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, although I can definitely do some damage at Hobby Lobby and Michael's. Kids' measure of fun doesn't equate to the amount of money you spend on supplies so your crafts will look perfect. The ones my kids have loved the best are made with scraps, recyclables, or stuff we have around the house.
