An assortment of simple and fun Christmas paper plate crafts, that kids will love!
Christmas is such a special time of year; from baking and decorating to spending time with family, the Christmas season really has it all! But the most amazing part of the holiday season are all the wonderful memories that are made.
Beyond the memories that we retain, are the memories that we can actually see. Going back through my parents Christmas decor and finding all the Christmas Crafts I made in elementary school always brings back so many memories. (Yes, my mom kept most of it and still uses a lot of it to decorate with.)
Now that I have my own family, I get to experience the fun of opening up our Christmas decor and finding my kids’ old crafts.
Not only do these art projects bring back memories for me, but for my kids as well. They love to recall what was going on in their lives “way back then” (last year lol) and how things have changed since then.
This year, since a lot of kids may be home distance learning, a lot of families won’t have kids coming home from school with their latest project.
I’ve put together a list of Christmas crafts made with paper plates, that your kids can do at home. That way, the kids will keep busy for awhile doing something fun and creating some fun memories.
To see the directions for each project, you can either click on the website link above the photo or click on the photo.
