Crafty Christmas Review (Kiwi Crate)

What It Is

If you're looking for fun and festive Christmas crafts for the kids to do this holiday season, then Kiwi Crate's Crafty Christmas might be just the craft kit for you. This kit comes with all the materials needed to create three craft projects.

My Swirly Ornaments lets kids create colorful plastic ornaments with paint, ribbons, tinsel pipe cleaners, and corks.

My Gingerbread House lets kids build a cardboard gingerbread house, and then decorate it with felt, stickers, pom-poms, ribbons, buttons, tissue paper, and pipe cleaners.

Kids can add more decorations to their gingerbread house by making Paper Candies our of pom-poms and tissue paper squares.

Is It Fun?

These craft activities are fun and easy ways for kids to create their own Christmas décor. What kids make can be used over and over again each holiday season, and kids will love seeing their homemade decorations used around the house.

Who It’s For

Crafty Christmas is for ages 3–7. Kiwi Crate gives all the crafts a medium grownup involvement ranking.

What To Be Aware Of

For My Swirly Ornaments, you'll also need a brown paper bag or dropcloth to protect your workspace because the paint can get messy. For My Gingerbread House, you'll also need scissors.

Kiwi Crate also has a subscription service. For $19.95 a month, the company will send your child a crate filled with themed activities that kids can put together themselves and play with. You don't need to subscribe to order the Crafty Christmas kit.
