Christmas Cards kids can make in an afternoon! Here are 10 amazing holiday card crafts that are both gorgeous and simple to make! Even the littlest helpers will be able to create these stunning cards with just a little help from you!
It has been a couple of years since my last post on Christmas cards kids can make so I thought it was time for a little update.
One of my favorite Christmas activities with My Little Holiday Helper is creating our annual Christmas cards. It’s a nice way to ease into the holiday season, sitting down with that first glass of eggnog and maybe some freshly baked gingerbread cookies, and getting busy with glitter and gel pens. And the best part is knowing that by the end of the afternoon, you will have beatiful hand-crafted gifts in hand for the friends, teachers, coaches, and relatives on your Christmas card list. Oh and don’t forget Santa – Santa Claus always loves a sweet home-made card when he stops by!
Some of these are cards we have already made over the past couple of years, and some have inspired us for card making this year. And yes, we have already begun :).

Paint Chip Christmas Cards via One Little Project
So…for some reason, we seem to spend a crazy amount of time in hardware and building supply stores! Which means I always seem to have a stack of paint chips around. Nope…haven’t painted a wall in at least 3 years. But the Little Holiday Helper and I both seem to be in a perpetual state of planning to change our wall color! Maybe this will be the year….
In any case, I love the idea of being able to put those paint chips to yet another great recycling use – they make amazing Christmas trees! Even the littlest ones will find thiscraft easy to do, as long as some bigger hands help with the cutting.

Glittery Christmas Tree Craft via I Heart Crafty Things
My Little Holiday Helper is going through a serious watercolor phase…she heads to our (new!) art room almost every day to create a new masterpiece. In fact, please don’t tell her, but her grandma was just here visiting and decided she is ready for her very own set of ‘grown-up’ watercolors and brushes, and a next-level color wheel. Grandma left for home today, but left behind a shiny silver box for under the Christmas tree! She is going to flip out! But I digress yet again…can you tell I’m excited? These gorgeous cards are just what the watercolor kid is all about this Christmas!

I’m not sure where she got the idea, but I love that the new art space is encouraging her to pull out a variety of materials to experiment with! So…yes…your little people can easily put together a Christmas card like this!
