The holiday season is upon us, and the festive imagery and colors of this time of year make for some fun craft ideas for young children. Create some lasting memories with your child by making these four holiday-themed crafts together.
Hanukkah Menorah Shape Collage
Creating this paper Hanukkah menorah can help your child develop math skills such as shape creation and recognition, and counting. What’s more your child can “light” each candle over the holiday and feel involved.

Creating paper snowflakes is a classic holiday craft that children and adults alike can have fun with. Your child can either cut out patterns on their own with safety scissors, or decorate the paper before you cut it into a snowflake shape.
In a warmer climate, you can still enjoy holiday snow with this fun hands-on project. Your child can have fun exploring the different textures of the fake snow, and parents will enjoy that this craft only needs two ingredients to create.
