#4. Egg Carton Christmas Bells

You can paint them and stick shiny bits on or just cover them in silver foil. To make them extra special, why not add a jingle bell to your string?

#5. Beaded Christmas Tree Canvas

Christmas Craft Ideas for ToddlersI love this Beaded Christmas Tree Canvas from Megduerksen. It uses up all the bits and pieces of craft materials you have left over from the year or you could cover your tree in glitter. And best of all it will last for years.

This craft is suitable for all ages, but toddlers will need some help getting the canvas ready. Messy but great fun and an amazing end result!
