As a parent, you want to make the holiday season as festive as possible for your kiddos. It goes without saying that they are only little for so long. While decorating the tree, baking cookies, and watching Christmas movies are activities you can do together beyond their early years, right now is the prime time to make crafts as a family that will later become holiday keepsakes you look forward to displaying in your home year after year. 

Sure, you can always come up with craft ideas on your own, but KiwiCo has a variety of adorable (and affordable) holiday-themed projects available now through December. Celeb parents like Reese Witherspoon, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard, and Andy Cohen have shown their love for KiwiCo in Instagram posts with their children. "[KiwiCo] has truly been a lifesaver in making it easy to create fun and educational moments at home," Witherspoon said in her Instagram caption. 

KiwiCo offers the best kinds of crafts: They conveniently ship to your doorstep, come with all the necessary pieces and instructions for your child to build something amazing, and are fun yet challenging for a wide range of ages. Some of the KiwiCo holiday boxes sell out every year, so order yours now while they're still available. (Note: Regular shipping takes anywhere from three to 10 business days.)

One of the most popular craft kits is Santa's Light-Up Workshop. Recommended for kids 9 years old and up, this KiwiCo project includes illustrated blueprint instructions, roof lights that actually light up, and colorful accessories to decorate the workshop's exterior. One reviewer described it perfectly, calling it a "permanent" gingerbread house. Unfortunately it's not edible, but at least you get to keep it forever. The holiday kits are suitable for ages 2 to 12, but there are also non-seasonal projects for children under 2 to work on, like this five-star rated magnetic car set
