Kids love Christmas crafts with popsicle sticks! They can make ornaments, decor, gift tags, and more. Keep them busy with these fun and cute ideas great for toddlers, preschoolers, and elementary age children.
I feel like one of the most underappreciated craft materials when it comes to the holidays are craft sticks – also known as popsicle sticks. During Christmas, it feels like pom poms, glitter, and other “bling-y” materials are more in the spotlight.
And I get that, because Christmas crafts are a time when I really like to get festive and use a lot of sparkly materials that I wouldn’t normally use in my crafts and day to day decorating.
But underneath all that sparkle and the cotton balls and feathers lie some pretty solid base materials, one of those being craft sticks. I mean, do you parents really love you if they don’t have popsicle stick ornaments from your childhood on their tree?
But seriously, Christmas crafts with popsicle sticks are SO fun during the holidays! I love doing them with my nieces because they are always a hit.
Kids love them, and honestly as an adult I love them too because the results are always pretty cute. Even if the skill set of the child (or adult!) making them isn’t necessarily “crafty expert.” Plus they’re great for kids of all ages, including toddlers (with your help, of course).
If you like popsicle stick Christmas crafts and want to do some with your family, I’d love for you to check out these projects. There are tons of great ideas on this list, and I know you’ll find something you like.
Let me know know if there are any projects you try or if there’s anything I’m missing. Keep on reading and happy holidays!
