kids this holiday season? These Christmas crafts for toddlers are easy and fun way to create with younger children.

Updated February 2022

Craft Arts is based on the idea that the journey of creation is more important than the end product you create. It encourages children to explore, experiment and play.

These process art activities are great because they’re open ended and allow kids to explore, but still have a nice holiday feel to them.
