For the supplies to make Christmas crafts, it depends on what you want to make. Most of them are fabric-based crafts. Then, you'll need some colorful felt, ribbons, or leftover fabrics. In order to cut these fabrics, you'll most probably need templates to cut them into shapes. If you make the crafts with the kids, you need a glue stick, scissors, and some coloring utensils. For the main supplies, you just need some Christmas-themed templates, colorful paper or the plain ones, popsicles, a cereal box, threads, and such. Don't forget to cover the table with plastic or newspaper, so the paint and glue won't all over the place.
You can keep them busy during the Christmas holiday by giving them the template of Christmas crafts. They can make snowflakes out of ice cream popsicles. Just tie with some threads and stick with kids-friendly glue. If you do this with little children, there is a lacing ornament right for them to explore the creativity and focus. Making an accordion Christmas tree is also easy. Just add some small ornaments and a dash of blinks. Let them make the tree topers with stirring sticks and glittery beads. Reuse the party paper plates into the Christmas tree whirligig, and paint the spiral template with watercolor.
