Christmas Wreath Craft For Kids

Our main goal during the holidays is to spend time together as a family connecting and having fun. Since December is so busy, I love to find simple open-ended activities and crafts that my kids can do without too much guidance from me.

This week we decided to set up a wreath making station using materials we already had around the house.

How To Make A Wreath With Kids

wreath craft ideas for kids using green paint, bows, red sequins and glue.

This wreath craft for kids is a great family project!

Step 1

Go ahead and cut out the middle of the paper plates, especially if you have younger children.

Step 2

Set up your materials where they are easily accessible for your kids. Prepare the gems, the ribbon, paint, and tissue paper so kids can grab them.

Take into account the ages and abilities and only set out materials that are age appropriate for your child.

Step 3

Let the kids start creating! Encourage them to add the materials they picked onto the plate with glue.

Step 4

Sit down and join them and do your own creating too! This was probably my favorite part. In addition to enjoying crafting with my kids, it was a simple way for me to show my toddler how to appropriately use some of the materials that she was unfamiliar with (without doing her project for her).

Step 5

Let your wreaths dry and then hang them up as a festive Christmas decoration!

Christmas Wreath Craft Notes:

Not only is this activity super easy, but you can also leave the materials out for several hours (depending on your kid’s ages) and kids can come back again and again and add to their creations or make a new one.
