Finding last minute Christmas crafts for kids are always a fun way to celebrate the holidays. In our house, we always have a fun craft table filled with goodies to let the kids have a blast while the parents are relaxing and making Christmas dinner. Having easy Christmas crafts set up for the kids, keeps them busy while the adults are getting everything else put together, and it’s really fun for the kids too!
This year, the kids and I put together some cute snowman crafts using Hefty plates! There is a really easy snowman craft tutorial on the Hefty website. The craft is great for all ages. My 12 year old daughter had a blast blinging up her very own “Olaf”, and the craft is so easy that even my 2-3 year old nieces and nephews would have fun with it too. The thing I loved about it was the fact that I had already bought the plates, all I had to do was dig into my craft supplies for a few things, and ta da the craft table was all ready!
The kids whipped out their little snowmen so fast, that they decided to grab some paint and make cute Santas too. That was a little bit messier, but they still had a lot of fun getting into the holiday spirit!
Here’s everything that you need for your snowman crafts:
- Hefty Foam Plates
- Construction Paper
- One Hole Punch
Once you’ve gathered all your supplies, then make sure to check out the Hefty Snowman Tutorial here to see how to make these cute snowman! They have lots of other great craft ideas too like free holiday treat bag printables, homemade ornament ideas, and even tips on ornament storage and freezing cookie dough.
Even though my kids are teens now, they still enjoy the “quality” time we spend together crafting during the holidays. I guess it’s kinda cool they don’t think they are too awesome to spend time gluing construction paper to plates with their mom.
