It’s still November, I know. I’m getting a jump on all things Christmas this year. I am determined that our December will be a relaxed season of creating family memories. Not the usual, rush, rush, rush. In order to do that, I am taking purposeful steps to finish up some of that to-do list before December rolls around. I was incredibly inspired by Kaley’s article “The Year I Cried On Christmas and Why I Wouldn’t Change It” over at Money Saving Mom. Let’s just say it lit a motivational fire under me.
Which brings me to these sweet little Christmas tree crafts. These are easy crafts I plan to do with my kids in December, though we would be starting NOW if my oldest had her way! By planning ahead, I know that we’ll have all the supplies we need on hand so we can get crafting when inspiration strikes. No scrambling for materials this year!
Isn’t this pom-pom paint idea cute? My preschooler will especially enjoy this one, but truthfully, all of my kids will have fun with this craft.
Sequins! We already have plenty of those on hand. This will be a fun one. I love the textured paper.
This paper tree is just so simple but fun. The color combinations are endless!
Come on! Are these not incredible cupcakes? These won’t be quite as easy as the other crafts, but I’m going to love making these with my 9-year-old. Now I just need to track down some gluten-free sugar cones. Or make them. We’ll see:-)

I also plan to purchase plenty of Christmas-themed craft supplies so my kids can discover their own Christmas creations!
Are you planning for Christmas already? Or do you wait until December rolls around?
