Easy Holiday Craft Gift Ideas for Parents
to Do with the Kids

website translator plugin

One of the great things about children is that they are all so full of life and it doesn’t take much to make them happy. In fact, just being able to spend quality time with their parents is usually more than enough.

While spending quality time with their special little ones is something everyone wants to do, it can be pretty difficult to do during the holidays. However, below are some great crafting ideas to do with the kids. 

These crafts serve two purposes -- not only do you get to spend quality time with your little ones, but you’re also helping them make their own Christmas presents to give away!

Drawing Pictures: 

While this may not seem like much of a craft, young children will think it is so much fun to draw pictures for their favorite people. You can make this craft more interesting by asking your little ones to draw pictures that tell a story. 

When the drawing is completed, have them write the story down on the back of the picture. If they are too young, then you can write it for them. 

These are perfect gifts for your children to give to their daddy, grandparents, or siblings at Christmas. You can modify this by folding construction paper in half and having them make their own Christmas cards.


Jewelry making is back in and this is the perfect craft for mothers to do with their children ages 7 and up. All you will need is some decorative beads, jewelry wire, and clasps and you’ll be ready to go. 

Your children will have fun making their friends and family various pieces of jewelry including bracelets, necklaces, and earrings. 

This is even a craft boys can do, as beaded jewelry is starting to be worn by men as well. Of course, there’s also leather jewelry for men, too. 

Sewing Projects: 

If you are one that has a flair for sewing, then this can be a fun craft for you to begin doing with your children. You can help your little ones make a variety of different sewn Christmas gifts for people. 

These include: aprons, tea towels, pillows, microwavable neck and shoulder wraps (the ones with scented rice in them), pot holders, and much more. Your children may even enjoy cross-stitching items for Christmas gifts too. 

Candles and Bath Soaps: 

Making scented candles and bath soaps are another fun craft to do at the holidays with children. You can find all the supplies you will need at your local hobby shop or craft store, including the molds and essential oils. 

While you can pick out these items online, it will probably mean more to your children if you allow them to help you select the molds and scents you will use for the candles and bath soaps. 

The holidays are supposed to be about family, but unfortunately many people – especially mothers, tend to forget this and focus on everyone else instead. So, this year try to take the time to make some holiday crafts with your children...

Not only will you and your children love the quality time you’ll be spending together, but you’ll also be able to get some of those Christmas gifts out of the way in the process, with a personal touch that’s sure to be greatly appreciated by their recipients!
