A Fine Motor Christmas Craft Kids Will Absolutely Adore


Tis the SEASON!! I’m so Excited about this Christmas Craft Kids will absolutely fall all over. I mean seriously, give me the name of ONE child who doesn’t love play-doh and who doesn’t love Christmas.

Mine were crying tears of joy with this Christmas project lol. So I have said it before and I will say it again, I LOVE the holidays! There is just something about the feeling, the music, the holiday inspired flavors and food, and most importantly, FAMILY. This is the time of year when we can count our blessings even more than usual.

The blessing of a family is huge for many people and that is one of the main reasons I created this site and also why I have decided to kick off the holiday spirit with Christmas crafts for all to enjoy! Feel free to check out some of my other Keep Toddlers Busy Christmas Crafts Post after you take a look at this one.

Simple Christmas Craft Kids Will Love

Let’s get too it! The supplies are super simple and you may have most of them already at home. I truly believe that it’s important to not only to have fun things for kids to do we we can have some time to sit and rest, but I also believe that it shouldn’t cost us a lot of money to do it. As you will see below, I frequent the Dollar Tree and reuse as much as I can. Take a look!

Christmas Activity Supplies

1.Play dough, Real Play-Doh, Fake Dough, Cookie dough, Homemade Dough. Whatever kind of dough you want, just use it!! I went with holiday colors to be festive

2. Christmas Cookie Cutters. AGAIN, I got them from the Dollar Store LAST Christmas. There is one three minutes from my house though so I think I may have a problem 🙂

3. Beads for Decorating! Or you can use literally anything you want! I’m talking jewels, candy, legos, whatever lol.

Roll, Cut, Decorate!

I’ll just let the pictures do the talk here. But before I do, just a few tips and suggestions!

1.Make sure that you have enough dough to do all of your cutting because once my kids decorated the shapes, they had no intention on messing up their masterpiece. They just wanted more dough!

2. If you like, this holiday craft idea can turn into an ornament keepsake craft as well. Just poke a hole in the top and let it dry overnight!

3. If using beads, make sure they are disposable or you plan to reuse them for this activity. In other words, don’t use your hair beads for this activity if you don,t have extra beads! You may not want to poke little dough pieces out of every bead.

Fine Motor Skills

This activity is amazing for working on fine motor skills by having to grip and place each little bead during the decorating. I sat there and watched my two year old adding and removing the tiny little beads with so much thought and concentration while I sat here doing nothing. Perfect set up 🙂

    I would love to try these tips you have given here! We have some kids that I know in a little orphanage here in our community. I feel like this is a great way I can end the year and try some new crafts that are not expensive. I will watch the video as well to get some other great ideas. Thank you for helping me!

    This is a really good one! Since Christmas is around the corner, its a great time to get things started with activities like this. Thumbs up to you for sharing this simple yet very awesome post! I know I will get some smiles and some fun out of this one.

    I just wanted to start off by saying: I love Christmas to, AND I believe family is a big part of why I love it so much.

    These activities would be so fun to do. Personally, I have never done any of these activities with kids. But, I am certainly going to start!

    I am more of a painter, and believe it is much better for the kids creativity than playing with play dough. 

    Therefore, would you mind making a blog about painting with kids?

    I am delighted to stumble across your blog post about fine motor Christmas crafts as I have small nieces coming to visit over the holidays.  I love the idea of creating memories around the fireplace making these lovely Christmas arts and crafts with my nieces.  A much better option than watching TV or having them play video games.

    I love this! I have a 7-year-old and he loves to do crafts. This seems like a fun activity for him and me to do together. I’m always looking for new craft ideas for us to do! It’s a really good way to get the kiddos away from technology for a while and spend some quality time being creative. My son also loves to create things out of empty boxes and sticks. We’ve done little mini-ecosystems to space ships and treasure boxes, but I’d love to see what activity you could come up with using these!

    I am not super familiar with fine motor crafts but it definitely looks like something that my little sister I get a chance to spend time with her for this holiday. I like the fact that you have made it all easy for us by using visual aids, really appreciate that. I will make sure that I bookmark and come back to make these awesome crafts. Thanks.

    This craft is are very simple to do and the kids would love playing with it. My kids are so much of a puzzle arranging kids and that’s what all their toys are about and getting this kind of gift for them would make a really nice idea. Although my kids are very small and I am being careful with them swallowing these small items, what do you suggest?
