Get ready to deck the halls with some festive crafting!

We've got a great selection of DIY family crafting you can do at home featuring some of our favourite friends.

First up, we've got a world of festive fun inspired by our Angela's Christmas films!

Ranging from printable activities, yummy holiday recipes, caroling sheets, and interactive social games! You can find all of these over on our Angela's Christmas website.

But first up on the crafting front, get ready to make some Angela's Christmas inspired Christmas tree ornaments! You'll need scissors, pencils, and crayons, and a print-out of this activity sheet, then cut, paste, and colour your very own ornaments for decorating the tree.

Now you're ready for some colouring fun! Get festive with this Angela's Christmas Colouring Sheet - you can download the printable here!

Looking for even more DIY ornaments to adorn your tree? Don't worry! We've got you covered with this amazing selection via our friends at PBSKids!

Have your problem solvers get into the holiday spirit with this Peg + Cat ornament, add a little heroic adventure with the Xavier Riddle ornament, deck the halls with this grr-ific Daniel Tiger ornament, and go wild with this Wild Kratts-themed ornament!

And no tree decor is complete without a festive Nature Cat ornament and a cheerful, worldly Let's Go Luna! ornament!

And how about taking a leaf from the Wild Kratts and adding some creature power to your decor with these Woodland Creature Ornaments!

Make an adorable DIY woodland creature ornament using basic household items! Reindeer are often associated with Christmastime and cold, snowy climates, but there are other animals that are part of the winter landscape too. Learn more about the snowshoe hare, musk ox, elk, and Siberian tiger as the Wild Kratts go on an adventure to find more Christmas Creatures.

Then create your own woodland creatures with this cute ornament craft. Make one of the animals featured in the craft video, one of the animals featured in the Wild Kratts video, or think of your own fun and creative ways to make your favourite animal into an ornament for Christmastime or anytime.

Now what better way to put the final touches to your tree than with these grr-ific DIY Snowflake Ornaments!

You can decorate your house for the holidays with these beautiful and easy cotton swab snowflakes! It's snowing in Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood! Everyone is excited and full of winter cheer as they celebrate Snowflake Day with decorations, songs, and a special Snowflake Day show. You and the family can sing along with Daniel Tiger and his family and then make snowflakes to decorate for your own Snowflake Day or other winter holiday celebration.

♪ All the lights are twinkling, the snow is falling down.

The Neighborhood is covered, the snow is all around.

All the falling snowflakes sparkle and sway.

It's time to get together for Snowflake Day. ♪

And now that the tree is all done, it's time to add a little holiday flair to your outfit with a Super Snowflake Headband!

Making a super snowflake headband is a great way to celebrate the magic of winter and all the fun it brings! We know Daniel Tiger is very excited for the Snowflake Day show. He’s playing the snowflake! Dressed in his blue and white snowflake costume and snowflake headband, Daniel gets a little nervous when he’s on stage. He runs off, but Daniel’s friends are there to help. They let Daniel know he is supported, and they encourage him to try again. Daniel does his part, reciting his lines and kicking off the exciting play!

Now you can create your very own snowflake headband for dress-up play, or just for fun! Using simple items, including pipe cleaners, scissors, and tape, you and your little tiger can make a custom headband to enjoy at home, and maybe even for hosting your own Snowflake Day show.

And finally, take a little tip from Nature Cat, reuse some everyday household items, get crafty with some homemade clay and give this awesome DIY Igloo a go!

The Inuit, native people of the cold Canadian Arctic, first built igloos as temporary shelters for long hunting trips. An igloo is a shelter made of snow and ice. It keeps the heat in, and the cold wind and snow out.

No snow? No problem! You can build a model igloo using clay.

That's all for now! We hope we've helped you get excited for the holidays!

And don't forget, we've also got the ultimate Holiday Viewing Guide for you to cozy up with when you're all finished with your crafting.
