3. Snowman poop!

Part party-favour and part craft project, this snowman poop is a cheeky and easy way to get in the Christmas mood. Print the cardboard packaging onto card stock or simply print out stickers and slap those onto some folded card instead.

4. Polka dot Christmas tree

This Christmas tree could be a December work in progress, with your kids adding stickers each day until the big day rolls around. And honestly? The more stickers, the better!

5. Cheeky elves

Paddle pop sticks and card become elves in the hands of creative little people!

6. Christmas mailbox

If you’re looking for the perfect home for your child’s letters to Santa, then this may just do the trick! This video tutorial makes it so easy.

7. Giant reindeer

These gorgeous reindeer are cleverly crafted from cardboard boxes and a lick of white paint, and while they might not be achievable for a preschooler they are definitely something you could paint together. And delight in together.

8. Christmas peg pals

Some old wooden clothespins (available at craft shops) and a few embellishments turn something simple and practical into something super Christmassy!

9. Homemade advent calendar

Simple paper sandwich bags become a countdown to Christmas. Just decorate with numbers and tuck some tiny treats or messages inside.

10. Rudolph gift tags

Even the littlest Christmas crafter can help glue on Rudolph’s red pompom nose. Super cute!
