My kids love making crafts (especially when the holidays roll around). In this post, I'm sharing some of my favorite Santa-themed crafts that are easy to make and easy on the budget. I would say that kids aged from 4 - 8 would like these craft ideas best, but they are great for any age. Kids love to give these to their friends as little holiday gifts too! Put them all in a Christmas gift basket, any child would love it!
One of my favorite crafts that uses leftover Pringles cans is this Chip Can Santa Craft that I found at Craft Kaboose. To make Santa, you'll need a Pringles can, felt (red, white, black, peach), cotton balls for the beard, a small pink pom-pom for the nose, two wiggly eyes, a medium white pom-pom for the end of the hat and some glittery silver chenille. You'll also need to have glue and scissors handy. You can get the printable patterns to create the boots, jacket trim, and arms and the full instructions for putting him together here at Craft Kaboose.

If you are an Aunt or Grandmother who lives a long way from your grandchildren, consider giving them a craft kit so they can make a little something fun even if you aren't there to help them. Or consider, our Child's Reindeer Holiday Chef Set which comes with a little chef hat and a personalized holiday themed apron for the child that loves to help in the kitchen.
