Kids Craft: Bauble Cards

| December 19, 2012 | 23 Comments

Christmas Craft Craft ideasI have a super duper simple and last minute Christmas Card Craft for you today. And one that very young children can help with too!!!! We made them, as Pip Squeak, watched me assemble our Teacher Appreciation Card and wanted to colour in some “baubles” too. So I drew some rough circles and let her have a go. Red Ted did some more too, but we haven’t finished his cards yet. I will have to add them at a later date. (If you want another Chirstmas Card idea, check out our Gingerbread Men too).


Materials: paper, scissors, card stock, pens, glue – optional – glitter glue or ribbon “for hanging”

1) Get your children to colour in some circles (here is a printable of different sizes for you). You can colour, stick, paint, draw, do whatever you like!! Just have fun

2) Cut your circles out and stick tem on your card

3) Add detail in glitter or with a ribbon to represent the baubles “hanging”.

Job done. So simple and I think they look really cute? Pip Squeak LOVED making these.

    They are super sweet cards.
    I hope my activity is ok because I didn’t do it with my children but you could so easily.
    It’s my first post in my new location too. Feel free to delete it if it breaks any rules.

    And Merry Christmas xx

    Oh of course that is fine!!!! Kids Get Crafty is “with and for” kids and I love your gingerbread ornaments 😉 I am only really “strict” when it comes to Kids Get Arty!!!

  3. These are wonderful – I think T could make some as well – in fact we may just have a go to do some this morning for aunts and uncles.

  7. These turned out really cute. We made an ornament from craft foam but I really like the ornament cards look.

  8. Such a great idea, and they look brilliant!
    Hope you have a lovely christmas x

  9. I always love a nice and simple craft for the little ones. Sometimes I get carried away thinking up crafts we could try only to realise that my idea of a fun craft is not always the same as my two-year olds!

    They look so lovely, actually anything your children have a go at just makes it all the more special.
