1. The Paper Plate Christmas Tree
You can finally put those leftover paper plates to use. All you have to do is paint them green and roll them into a cone shape. The kids can use glue to stick colorful pom-poms to the tree to add more color. There are no rules to this craft; you can add glitter and stickers to make your tree grow. May the best paper plate win!
2. Family Handprint Christmas Tree
Nothing brings the family together like bonding time spent cutting out handprints. You can add some color to make your Christmas tree more colorful. Trace out everyone’s hands-on paper, then cut them out. Arrange the cuttings in the shape of a Christmas tree with the large handprints taking the bottom part of the tree. You can add a star to the top of the tree.
3. The Star of David Hanukkah Crafts
The Star of David is a well-known six-pointed symbol made by merging two triangles. You can use any material to create the triangle shapes before joining them. You might need glue, glitter, and ribbons for this Hanukkah craft.
4. A Kwanzaa Necklace Craft
Grab some pasta, paint, and thread, and you are set to create a necklace fit for a king. It is a fun gift for preschoolers and family members to exchange. If you are feeling sparkly, feel free to add glitter to the party. Preschoolers might enjoy threading the painted pasta and matching different colors.
5. Make a Miniature Drum
Making a tiny African drum is a great way to celebrate Kwanzaa with the whole family. Music is a big part of Kwanzaa, specifically traditional music with drum beats. Each member of the family can make a unique drum that represents their role in the family.
6. Dreidel Crafts
A Hanukkah craft for the whole family; the dreidel is a traditional Hanukkah game played using a small four sided spinning top with a Hebrew letter printed on each side. You’ll need paper, paint, plastic tops, and straws or sticks cut to size.
7. Cinnamon Stick Trees
When it comes to holiday crafts for preschoolers, this is by far the most therapeutic, requiring every bit of focus and creativity to create an ornate cinnamon Christmas tree. For a miniature Christmas tree that smells delicious, you’ll need different colored ribbons and cinnamon sticks. The top of the cinnamon stick gets a nice bow, while the length gets superficial knots. Proceed to cut the ribbons to take the shape of a Christmas tree.
