Easy Christmas Crackers for Toddlers to Make

Easy Christmas crafts are always great to do around Christmas time. I always love to incorporate a book into our crafts and for this one, Macca's Christmas Crackers was just perfect! It's a lovely book and one of our new favourite Christmas books to read. You can get this HERE on Amazon.

What you need to make your Christmas Crackers

Since this activity is aimed at toddlers I don't include the strip that makes them 'crack' but you can get them at most craft stores if you prefer to use them.

How to make your easy Christmas crackers

Spread out your butcher's paper and let your child paint with the rollers (you can also use old paintings if you prefer)

Once they are happy with the painting you can add the glitter! I recommend adult supervision with this part!

Cut your paper so that it will be small enough to wrap around your cardboard roll - leaving enough room at the ends to tie it up.

Wrap the paper around and sticky tape the paper together (adult help required)

Scrunch up each end and tie with curling ribbon. Have an adult use scissors to curl the ribbon.
