We love Christmas crafts here on Kids Craft Room and have got loads of modern reindeer, Santa and elf crafts on this site. Sometimes though it’s really nice to focus on some more traditional RELIGIOUS CHRISTMAS CRAFTS FOR KIDS too. So I’ve put together a bumper collection of 40 children’s religious Christmas craft ideas for you, so that you can find lots of wonderful ideas, all in one place.
Whether you are looking for religious Christmas crafts to make at home, or Sunday School Christmas crafts you’ll find lots here that you’ll want to try. Most of them are designed as religious preschool Christmas crafts but they’d still be enjoyed by older children too and I’ve made sure to include a few specifically for the big kids as well.
To help you find exactly what you’re looking for I’ve divided them up into 5 sections. You’ll find:
- Nativity Crafts
- Baby Jesus Crafts
- Star Crafts
- Angel Crafts
- Three Kings Crafts
Below you’ll see that there are photos of each of the religious Christmas crafts. Underneath the photos there is a short description of each craft with a text link to click to take you straight to the full tutorial.
I hope you have as much fun with all these wonderful religious Christmas craft ideas as we have!
