Christmas is an exceptionally festive occasion for many diverse families in the world. The occasion is marked as religious by Christians, for the birth of Jesus Christ, hence its grave importance to individuals around the world. The holiday announces a large break from educational institutions and workplaces. Families take time off their respective days of work and school in order to celebrate this religious holiday with their loved ones. A countless amount of activities are associated with the holiday. It can be ranging from school dances, plays, children Christmas crafts to more adult like parties, get tog-ether's, and so on forth. However before the mainly supposed day of Christmas, which is December the 25th, parents and teachers bring children together in order to celebrate this occasion through the makings of Christmas crafts. Children Christmas crafts are an excellent and effective fashion to learn education related skills. Let us take a look at the advantages of children Christmas crafts and a brief example of a Christmas craft.

Christmas crafts have the strong ability to enhance cognitive abilities in children and along side with it, refining of their hand eye co-ordinations. Their coordination and dexterity will see much more increase. Social aspects are also encouraged while making crafts, children ask for help from others, engage in conversation and solve problems together, as well as share equipment within the classroom or home. Children also learn to pick up characteristic virtues such as patience and perseverance. Once they recreate something and it is broken or not correct, they learn to try again with help from others or on their own, they learn not to give up.

An example of an excellent children Christmas craft would be a reindeer pot. For this you will need a printed ear pattern, a silk holly leaf, a thin red ribbon, googly eyes, brown pompom and a red pompom (which can be substituted by red tissue paper), foam, gold pipe cleaner and a small clay pot or even a plastic one. Now for the instructions, paint your pot brown if it already isn't. Glue your googly eyes on to your brown pomp and glue the red pompom on top of it. Print, trace or draw you own ear pattern into a foam and cut it out. Glue these ears on to the pot. Take your gold pipe cleaner and bend it into loops and glue them in front of the reindeer ears. Now add the holly leaves or anything else, tie a bow, glue the leaves and you're done!
