Easy Christmas crafts for children are a great way to fill up the school holidays from October right up to Christmas.

Children love making stuff, especially when it has a real use. So these bread decorations are the ideal way to occupy children during the holidays leading up to Christmas when then weather isn’t always that great.

Making these gorgeous decorations will keep them busy for hours.

You can even start the ball rolling by making the first batch yourself and leaving them to dry out. So when you introduce the activity, once they have cut out their first bread shapes, they will have a batch to work on while waiting for the ones they cut out to dry.

Hope you have fun with your easy Christmas crafts for children – let me know how you get on!
