Easy Christmas Crafts for Kids

My kids are 11 and 8 and over the years, we’ve tried to find a simple project or two that we can make at Christmas.  What I’ve learned is if it’s too complicated, we all get frustrated and it’s not exactly the “family fun day” I envisioned.  But, I’ve got a few for you today that won’t make you curse the day Pinterest came into existence!  Check out these easy Christmas crafts for kids you can make this year!

Cheap Halloween Decorations – How to Scare for Cheap!
