4 Cute Christmas Card Art Projects For Kids To Make At Home or School

Christmas is here and you're looking for ways to make some Christmas cards the kids can make for their family. My Primary school children love making these, especially the youngest ones.

My past self had managed to make teaching these sessions a lot easier since she had already created a massive folder of all the templates and outlines that I could need for anything related to Christmas art projects. Saving myself hours of Googling & Photoshopping.


If you find you need to save yourself some time finding templates for your Christmas Crafts, go and get a copy of the Everything Christmas Template Bundle, thank me later.




Here's a look at 5 super cute Christmas card ideas that kids can make at home or at school, in perfect time for the holidays. These cards don't take long to make and the results are so adorable.



Christmas Tree Cards




What You’ll Need:


What To Do:

  1. Cut a bunch of triangles from green paper.

  2. Accordion fold the triangle horizontally.

  3. Fold whatever Christmassy colour card stock you want, in half.

  4. Glue the tip and the base of the tree to the front of the card.

  5. Decorate your tree!

  6. Write a lovely message inside.


Things to consider:

  • Allow a bit of variety by giving the option of a few different colours of card stock.

  • Some kids could not grasp the accordion fold concept. I demonstrated this showing how to fold away from you, flip the paper over, fold away from you, flip. Fold, flip, fold, flip and so on.

  • Make sure your kids are gluing their tree to the right side of the card. I got a handful of backwards cards!

  • I hate sequins and glitter. My students already know this. The stuff gets everywhere! But I couldn’t deprive them of it’s magical effect this Christmas while crafting. So I gave them all the sequins. BUT, the rule was each table had to use up every single sequin before they could receive anymore to use.



Snowman Christmas Cards




What You’ll Need:


What To Do:

  1. Cut 3 white circles from the template.

  2. Fold card stock in half.

  3. Glue the 3 circles stacked in a line onto the front of the card.

  4. Add cotton wool to embellish your snowman.

  5. Cut a hat and 3 round buttons from the black paper.

  6. Cut a tiny triangle for the nose from the orange paper.

  7. Arrange your snowman pieces on the front of your card and glue them down.

  8. Write a lovely message inside.


Things to consider:

  • Explain how to put glue on the paper before you stick the cotton down. I caught a lot of kids putting the cotton to the glue stick!

  • Again, make sure your kids are gluing their snowmen to the front side of the card.
