Christmas gift bag
Help your child in turning an old shopping bag into a lovely Christmas gift bag. In order to remove the company name and company logo, cut the large square sheet on each side. With the help of cellophanes, create a transparent window by covering the open area. Tie a ribbon on it. Tell your child to use this bag for sending gifts to their friends.
Like Santa, snowman is one of the cute Christmas craft ideas for kids. The cute and funny appearances of snowmen with a poking nose like a joker don’t let kids control their laughter.

Paper plate and straw Christmas tree craft
Sometimes, it is not necessary that craft activities can be performed only with the help of proper material. This year, educate your child about re-use and re-cycle concept and tell them to form a lovely X-Mas tree with the help of waste paper plates and straws. By cutting semi-circles or quadrants from the paper-plates, a strong base for the tree can be made. With the help of glue, stick multi-colored straws on the base in order to form a triangle. Chop extra boundaries with the help of a cutter and recycled Christmas tree is there.
