Looking for some fun ways to connect with your kids this holiday season? These process oriented Christmas arts and crafts are fun for kids of all ages!

Updated November 2021

Process art is the idea that the journey of creation is more important than the final product you create. It encourages kids to explore, experiment, and play.

These process art activities are great because they’re open ended and allow kids to explore, but still have a nice holiday feel to them.
