Anyone have a great DIY project in mind for a Christmas craft to do with smaller kids that the materials can be found at Michael's?

You can buy polymer clay and have them make snowman or like ornaments that can fit a picture of them in and after they make them bake them at 275 degrees for about 15 to 20 min. and they can keep them forever.

I love using scrapbook paper for different things, because it's thick and holds up pretty well. You can get a large pack with holiday designs or just silver and golds and make really nice chains with them for the tree!

Bend pipecleaners into a candy cane shape and add plastic beads. Very easy for kids as young as two - my kids loved it!

Cut out snowflakes out of different scrapbook papers, stack some styrofoam balls and have craft materials available to make customized snowmen, make your own ornaments, customize your own christmas picture frame ... the possibilities really are endless :)

If you knit or crochet, the selection is very good - hats and scarves are a good practical present.

One year at the store I worked at I bought little foam gingerbread men from Michaels. I bought a bunch of glitter glue, cute buttons, and other fun crafts. Then, I printed out pictures of each coworker, cut out the faces and glued them on the gingerbread men. If you have a cheap camera, you can take pictures of each student or just have them draw on the faces of their parents or other family/relatives. It was a lot of fun!

There are so many projects that you can find at Michaels to do with smaller kids during Christmas. There are baking supplies and decorations, there are craft kits. My kids love using clay to make Christmas decorations after you bake them in the oven they harden and will last a long time. There are also pipe cleaners, felt squares, beads, all things you can make great ornaments, wreaths, and cards with. The question you need to ask is which project will these kids want to do!

Michaels usually has dedicated aisles or displays with craft kits for all different ages. My kid (2yo) loves the foam sticker ones. I take backing off for her and put them upside down on a paper plate so she can pick them up easier. Or you can make salt dough (1c flour, 1/2c salt & 1/2c water) and make those into a billion and one different things- ornaments, and prints, nativity scenes. If your kid is really young, like toddler to preschool ages, they'd love scribbling, painting, stickering and coloring on some craft paper and using that to wrap presents.

Get some of those foam shapes, the cones are great, or the balls! then have the kids glue different shaped pastas to the foam shapes, till it's completely covered. After the glue dries, then spray paint them, green, silver and gold work really well!!

Paper plate Santa Clause. Paper plate for the face and glue cotton balls for the beard. Letting the kids draw the eyes and nose. Or you can use items like eyes and noses to glue on. Also decorated red paper for the hat with a glued bell on the end.

Ornaments! You can buy a box of glass or plastic pretty cheap--use the coupon! Then let them drop paint in--several colors, just one, etc., and swirl around. The results are always different, and mixing colors is fun! I've done this with both craft acrylic paint and Tempera paint. The Tempera is a bit thinner, but it still works.

I've done handprint wreathes with my 5yr old. I bought the paint, contruction paper, ribbon, glitter and bells at Michaels. What i did was I painted my sons hand with green paint and had him press his hands a few times on green construction paper, then sprinkled gold glitter on it. I cut the hands out after they dried and assembled them in a circular wreath shape. For final touches I created a small bow out of ribbon, and hot glued some jingle bells.

Make your own DIY Ornaments buy purchasing plain ornaments from the store and go down the ailes of sequences, glitter, and paint so when you decorate your tree it's full of memories instead of ones already made. It becomes more memorable!

They have seasonal foam gingerbread house kits. Lots of fun and way less messy than food. All their craft kits are really nice and good for kids.

There are clear ornaments that you can fill with each child's choice of filling (ex: paint, glitter, beads, string, paper, flowers, etc).

You could always get the Foam frames and some other foam animals, snowmen,or snowflakes. They can decorate the frame and then you can add a picture of them in it.... Put magnets on the back and you have a new fridge magnet!
