Do you know what goes hand in hand with snow in our home? Christmas art for kids!
It’s official – we have had snow! I just love the first snow. It means that Christmas is on it’s way (or Halloween, depending on the year … but this year – Christmas!)
I wrote about Christmas crafts for kids last year that are super cute and fun for little ones to make. This year I thought I would share some Christmas art for kids to make.
These art projects focus on neat art techniques for kids to try and playful art experiences for them to have.
I’m planning on doing one a week with my little guys. I hope you and your little ones have fun giving a few of them a try as well.

What do you think? Did you find a few Christmas art activities that will work for you and yours? I hope so! I find planning an art activity or two makes sure I am taking some time to slow down and really enjoy this season with my little ones.
It’s very easy to get caught up in the busyness of this time of year. It’s funny how one simple little art activity can centre me and bring me right back to what matters. Time creating with my family.
Thank you very much for reading friends! I hope you have had a fabulous week. I have a very pretty art project heading your way next week – come on back soon.
