New Year's is a special holiday for everyone, and children can have even more fun on this day if they are engaged in crafts. EnchantedLearning.com and ActivityVillage.co.uk provide some great examples of types of crafts children can make for over this holiday season.
Children can opt to do crafts that are traditional as well as relevant; for example, as suggested by Enchanted Learning they can make a simple pop-up card for a family member or friend with paper, scissors and markers. They can also do other crafts with paper, such as folding an origami dove symbolizing peace, writing an acrostic poem with the letters of the words "New Year" or drawing a simple calendar.
Activity Village provides even more creative ideas for crafts. For instance, children can create a time capsule to be opened the next year or a memory box to commemorate the previous year. They can make a New Year's crown out of pipe cleaners or paper to make the day extra special. Making a savings container out of an old jar is a another craft that is both practical and fun. Children also have many options for crafts pertaining to New Year's resolutions, such as the creation of a magnet or wreath with resolutions written on it.
