My kids love making lots of Christmas crafts during the holiday season and I think that these gorgeous angel craft ideas are ones that you’ll want to share with your kids too.
Angel crafts can make great keepsakes and they’re often ones that you’ll want to display too, whether it’s making and angel Christmas tree topper or an easy angel handprint craft.
There’s lots of ideas in here to inspire you this festive season whether you’re at home getting creative with your child or looking for angel crafts for preschoolers or crafts that you can make in a classroom.

Angel Craft Ideas
Today I’m sharing ten super sweet angel crafts for kids with ideas suitable for kids of all ages from preschoolers to those at school.
Obviously kids abilities and interests are different at each age so make sure you take a look through all of these and pick the one that’s most suited to your child.
Some of the angel craft ideas that I’m sharing today are ones that we’ve done but you’ll also find a few from some of my favourite blogs for kids crafts.
In this post you’ll find loads of fun ideas that you can try out with your child using materials that should be easy to find such as paper plates, cupcake liners and pipe cleaners as well as some made using printable templates to hellp keep the costs down over the festive period.
Angel Crafts Kids Can Make
Creating paint splat crafts is a bit of a childhood classic, I’m fairly certain that I made paint splat butterflies when I was in preschool! This paint splat angel craft gives the classic a twist for Christmas time and I think the results look great.
Build an Angel Craft
Cut and paste crafts are something that I’ve really enjoyed sharing this year and this build an angel craft is no exception. You can download this printable for free and the template comes with a choice of hair for your angel as well as a paper loop so you can turn it into angel decoration.
I love this paper plate angel craft from Red Ted Art. Paper plates are always a great craft material as they’re one that so many people have at home already or can buy cheaply and you can make a fun design for your angel’s dress too.
I adore how pretty and delicate doilies look in crafts and these angel ornaments with doily wings and dresses from the Best Ideas for Kids look adorable.
Happy Hooligans shares a simple tutorial to make coffee filter angels that would be a good choice to do with younger kids or at Sunday School. I think the pipe cleaner halos are super sweet too.
Follow this simple tutorial from Crafty Morning to make this fun cupcake liner angel craft.
Like a lot of people I love to use natural materials in kids crafts and this pinecone angel ornament from Fireflies and Mudpies is a gorgeous example of this. Using a hot glue gun means that this is a craft for older kids to create with supervision but the results are great.
These clothespin angels from Kids Craft Room are totally adorable, the angels face looks super easy to draw and I love how sparkly they are too.
Pretty much all kids crafts round ups involve toilet rolls at some point and who am I to change that? These sweet toilet roll angels are from The Craft Train and of course if you don’t want to use a toilet paper roll you can swap it out for a kitchen roll tube cut in half or and just roll up some cardstock and secure it at the back to make a cardboard tube angel instead.
Free Nativity Printables
We have loads of free printable Christmas crafts from DIY cards to gift tags and even a 3D gingerbread house, they’re a great way to do a festive activity with your kids without having to spend a fortune on craft materials.
We have three different printable nativity crafts with different ideas suitable for different age groups and I think these would be a great activity to create alongside your angel crafts, especially if you’re learning about the Christmas story.
This nativity craft scene has a great 3D design which means that once you’ve colored it in and stuck the pieces together it’s ready to be displayed.
Our cut and paste nativity is a simple activity that kids can color and cut out. You can then glue each person or part of the nativity scene around the stable.
For something a little different I also really love our nativity scavenger hunt.
You could color each item as you hear about them in the Christmas story or if you have some nativity ornaments at home or in your classroom you could hide them and have your kids look for them.
