Christmas Paper Crafts for Kids

| | |

There is something very exciting about PAPER. Paper is so simple. It is affordable and it is simply AMAZING what you can make out of paper. With the Christmas season upon us and our love for Christmas Crafts for Kids, I thought a round up of our favourite Christmas Paper Crafts would be useful!

I love Christmas Paper DIY Ideas, because all you need is said pad of paper and basic “home stationery” like scissors, glue stick and some pens. And then you can let the crafty magic happen. Turn humble paper into bookmarks, gift boxes, greeting cards, ornaments and so much more. For those of you who have a printer to hand, I have also added links to our Free Christmas Printables – of course, you will need paper AND a printer for that. So. Tie for some Christmas Paper Ideas.

Christmas Paper Crafts Materials we frequently use:

  • White printer paper (yep! Just plain old printer paper – US/ UK)
  • A pad of coloured paper (I buy pretty paper in a local store, but this looks good US/ UK)
  • Coloring Pens (we always stock up on these US/ UK)
  • Scissors (these are super good and work for left and right handed US/ UK)
  • Glue Stick (good quality! US/ UK)

Christmas Origami Projects

As well as bookmarks, we have also fallen in love with Easy Origami for Kids – now that my kids are getting older (7yrs and almost 9yrs), we can start exploring some of these patterns and designs. The majority really are EASY, whilst the others are not as hard as they look and just need a little patience!

  1. Origami Christmas Tree
  2. Similar to the paper snowflakes, you will also love these 3d Christmas Trees.. which you can a little electric tea light too as well.
  3. Origami Penguin (works really well as a Christmas Card too)
  4. Origami Envelopes (decorate as Penguins and Polar Bears)
  5. Origami Star Wreath
  6. Origami Star Bowl
  7. Origami Paper Box
  8. Origami Lucky Stars

We particularly love the Christmas Tree Luminaries on auto play!! They are SUCH a fun project to have a go at!

Here is an example of one of our easy Origami patterns. ADORE these envelopes. They would make great Thank You notes posts Christmas!
