Even the most unenthusiastic crafters can usually be convinced to get involved when it comes to Christmas projects. These 10 ideas include something fun for everyone and we like them because they use simple, cheap materials and are relatively mess free.

Drinking straw Christmas trees Use red and green straws to great effect in this project. The final product would look great on a greeting card.

Painted pinecone Christmas trees You'll need a couple of bags of plump pinecones for this activity which encourages the development of fine motor skills and creativity.

Christmas baubles A simple circular template and loads of bright and colourful bling are all you need to make a bunch of baubles which can be sent home or used to decorate the tree in your service.

Christmas wind spirals This project uses simple supplies and is relatively mess free.

Christmas lanterns Use brightly coloured contrasting paper to create a flotilla of pretty lanterns which will look lovely strung around your service during the Christmas concert.

Handprint Rudolph Ideal for pre-schoolers this activity uses paper plates as the basis for an adorable red-nosed Rudolph.

Snow globes Make your Christmas white with these easy DIY snow globes.

Angel sun catchers The long sunny days of Christmas in Australia make this a very appropriate activity. The basic idea can be used to create a variety of different sun catchers.

Shape wreaths Primary colours and geometric shapes make this a great activity for encouraging STEM skills in young children.

Cotton ball Santa Cotton wool and glue… what could go wrong?! This easy activity results in a jolly Santa which children can tailor to their heart’s content.
