Want to keep little ones busy while you get ready for Christmas? How about making this easy Christmas cup craft for kids. It is a great way to practise their fine motor skill. It is also great gift idea too. Nothing like a homemade Christmas gift to put a smile on someone’s face. Teachers, neighbors or friends will enjoy this. So head to your local Dollar store or Amazon and gather the supplies needed. The coffee cups are key to this craft. They need to be paper and not styrofoam. They also need to be plain and no print on them. It is super important to have this kind of coffee cup for this Christmas craft!

HOW TO MAKE This Christmas craft for kids
Step 1. Set out your coffee cups and spray them with blue spray paint. Leave to dry.
Step 2. Detach coffee sleeves and lay flat. Paint black and let dry.
Step 3. Add a thin layer of silver glitter paint over the black coffee sleeve and let dry.
Step 4. Lay out your embellishments. Here we used a branch with artificial snow and some styrofoam holly berries.
Step 5. Wrap the coffee sleeve around the coffee cup and secure with hot glue.
Step 6. Using the hot glue gun, position and secure your embellishments to the sleeve and coffee cup. Add glitter to the embellishments if you like.
Step 7. Fill with tissue or shredded paper, small gifts and a kind note.
Isn’t this a beautiful handmade Christmas craft? Make sure to help little hands when needed. Handling a glue gun is not easy for them.
