Craft fans can grab paper and scissors themselves. While this is more time consuming, it is a lot of fun. For handicrafts you should definitely have the following at home:

  • Construction paper in different colors and thicknesses (red, green, silver, gold, dark blue are particularly suitable as colors)
  • Glue and scissors
  • pencil
  • rubber stamp
  • small applications or stickers with Christmas motifs
  • Glitter
  • everything that can be found in the forest in winter (branches, pine cones, acorns)
  • Fabric ribbons
  • Masking tapes (colorful adhesive tapes)


Who stamp with Christmas motifs should use a red or green ink pad for the cards. That goes best with the contemplative time.
