I’ve bought some foam Christmas trees and pom-poms, glitter etc to decorate them.

We’ve also made toilet roll tubes into snowmen with paint etc.

Handprints into Santa or ruldolph.

Finger print string lights to make Christmas cards for family.

Salt dough Christmas decorations.

Paper gains.

Not sure if you're in the uk/us but I got some cardboard snowmen/snowflakes that come with pom poms and googly eye to stick on from wilko for £1

Also picked up a foam Christmas train from hobby craft which you make yourself

Christmas stickers

Popsicle stick snowflakes

Paper chains with Christmas themed paper

Also following because I need ideas too

I steer clear of pom poms and glitter. OMG the mess and pom poms never stick.

We turned handprints into santa, footprints into reindeers etc.
My girls also used to love rubber stamps too.
Paper chains?
Paint your own decorations, we tried the salt dough ones once, may do that again too.
My eldest is 5 and only just starting to make things and enjoy crafts, toddlers just like the mess ha ha

Salt dough handprints looks like a good one although I've never tried it yet!

Some fab ideas thanks! Will definitely try the salt dough. They’d make great presents for grandparents xx

DD1's class are making snow globes out of food jars.

I went through my decs lastnight and found an angel tree topper which DD1 made in nursery - it's a white plastic cup, half a doily for wings, tinsel on the top and a piece of paper with a face drawn on it haha

On the 5th, I'm helping in the classroom with some xmas crafts, so I'll update in here what we do!
