I'll share mine and you share yours :-) My kids are 5 and 3 yo. these are a few crafts that we've done together:
Handprint Christmas Wreath
Materials: A large piece of paper, something round to trace (like a small cereal bowl), green and red washable paint, scissors.
Prep: Trace around your cereal bowl- then draw a larger circle around that circle and cut. so you have a large circle. With some scrap paper, cut out a circle to tape in the middle so when the kids paint, you can keep the center clean.
Put green paint on a paper plate.
With the kids: Have them get paint on thier hands and make handprints all around the circle to make the greenery of a wreath.
Option A: remove the circle you taped in the middle and make one final really good handprint.
Option B: Leave the center free of paint- cut out once dry.
When the green paint has dried, have the kids use one finger dipped in red paint and make holly berries all around the wreath.
