Candy Cane Holiday Wreath- This is probably the easiest idea to have your kids do. The styrofoam ring can be found in the craft section/store, yarn and any decorations you like to add. Wrap the yarn and tie off. Use yarn to tie the decorations on also. No gluing necessary. Instead of yarn you could use strips of wrapping paper and tape it around the ring.
Fingerprint Art! EASY! Great for 5+ year-olds -they love using their imaginations. For the younger kiddo's they can do the stamping and you can help them with the faces (Caterpillars are a good animal for one for the littler kids to make).
