Winter Crafts for Children and Teens

Posted on November 28, 2016

Since I started working at the Kent Branch Library, I have had a “Holiday Cards and Gifts” program. The children are very excited to see which crafts we are going to make for them to give their family and friends. We usually make 3 cards, 3 ornaments, and a small special gift.

I compiled my favorite crafts, both new and old, to share with you. Hopefully, at least one of these projects can keep your little ones busy this wintry season!

This first craft consists of cups, felt, pompoms, and pipe cleaners. Find the instructions at Crafts by Amanda.

This next project is from Life with Moore Babies. Search for pinecones and acorns to create these little cuties!

This elegant evergreen is easier than it seems! Get the instructions from Homemade Gifts Made Easy.

I never have any luck with gingerbread, that’s why I love this stylish substitution from Little Red Window.

The next three greeting cards are classics at Kent Branch. These are so simplistically charming that any age can create a cherished card.

This origami penguin bookmark from Red Ted Art is a really easy craft and cute gift for any bookworm.

This is a great home-made gift idea from Hello Wonderful. Anyone would love this gift!

Even the birds need a bit of cheer during the cold season. Create these Cheerio crafts with limited supplies. Another great idea from Red Ted Art.

Serving Pink Lemonade has my favorite dough recipe to make crafts. Paint with acrylics and tie with bow to complete an ornament, or glue a magnet on the back for a gift.
