Preschool Christmas Crafts with Pine Cones
You may think it’s too early to start Christmas crafts, but people say it brings joy and makes you happier than those who wait until December. What to do to keep your child occupied? After trying some easy Halloween crafts, it’s time to think about the next event. So here is what you need for the first DIY project:
- Pine cones
- acrylic paint
- paint brushes
It’s the perfect time for pine cone Christmas crafts Let your little one decorate them as he pleases, then use them to decorate flowerpots, the table, the windowsill or the Christmas tree. In the latter case, you will also need a string. It is very easy to tie it around the central stem of the pine cone, between the scales.
You can use acrylic paints and then let them dry. Then apply some glitter here and there. If it’s powder, add it before the paint dries. And be careful! Don’t forget to put a newspaper or an old tablecloth to protect your table.
Manual Activity with Makeup Remover Pads
Here is another simple, but very original idea. You may never have thought that you could use your makeup remover pads for crafts, but you can! You will need:
- Cotton makeup remover pads
- Clear glue pen/liquid glue
- Colored paper
This is a very easy way to make Christmas cards for the family. Cut triangles and rectangles from colored paper. They are needed to make the tree, scarf and snowman’s hat. If you don’t have any, use white paper, colored with markers or crayons. Next, divide the pads in half and glue them onto the card, then add the little details and finally draw a smile, eyes and buttons. It’s that easy!
In craft stores you can find different wooden items, like these little trees. Follow the concept of our first idea and turn them into festive, sparkling decorations. Let your child express and develop his creativity by choosing the colors himself. And when it comes to winter holidays, glitter is a must. So don’t hesitate to add a little glam.
If you don’t have time to go to a store, use cardboard boxes of pasta or cookies, for example. Cut out a tree, paint it with white acrylic paint and, once dry, decorate it with beads, nail polish or markers.
Easy Christmas Tree Craft
Here too, you have two options: either buy a foam cone from a hobby store, or make one from cardboard. The difference is that there is no need to paint it. Take different yarn and glue, suitable for children. Let him recreate this cute Christmas tree and when he’s ready, help him decorate it. You can use buttons from old shirts or to decorate the tree.

This is our last idea for today, but don’t worry. Follow us in the days and weeks to come, as we’ve prepared some great projects for the whole family.
So, to make these cute snowmen crafts, you need some old socks and some buttons.
Fill a white sock with beans or rice and tie it tightly on top. Cut the top of another colorful sock to make a hat. Then cut out a scarf and tie it tightly in the middle of the white body to form two balls: the body and the head. Finally, add the eyes, nose and buttons.
