All new crafts for 2020

Kids 5 and under love to get creative with different painting techniques. Painting with sponges is a simple and fun way to explore basic shapes to paint and cut out.

It's the most wonderful time of the year but it wouldn't be complete without Santa in his sleigh.

This adorable Santa Paper Plate Mask craft is a great craft for your child using things you most likely have around your home.

This Reindeer Headband craft is just too cute and would be perfect headwear for watching Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.

This fun DIY paper cone Christmas Tree craft is super easy to make and a perfect holiday decoration to show off.

A wonderful DIY Christmas craft for toddlers and preschoolers. This easy-to-make Hand Print Christmas Wreath is super cute and makes a beautiful decoration, keepsake, or gift to keep the house festive all season.

This fun little Clothespin Snowman craft is super easy to make and just as versatile. Glue them to presents to make a cute gift tag holder. Clip them to your tree for a fun kid-made ornament. Or hide them around the house and have your very own Christmas Snowman Hunt just like you would for an Easter egg hunt.

These DIY Christmas Pop Up Cards are fun and simple to make. Choose from a variety of elves and characters direct from the North Pole to make a unique gift that is loads of fun to share with friends and family.

These adorable North Pole Times Elves are the perfect DIY ornament for kids to make and hang on the Christmas tree!

You've heard of the "Los Angles Times" and the "New York Times", now you can enjoy the new "North Pole Times!" For 25 years, the North Pole Times has kept kids updated on all the news at Santa's Village at the North Pole. This very successful format offers a different approach to holiday web sites by offering updated information EVERY day from Thanksgiving through December 26th.

Could something develop that might hinder Christmas this year? Perhaps a breakdown in Santa's toy factory? Maybe the reindeer turn ill because they didn't eat their vegetables. Or maybe Santa himself catches a cold because he didn't dress right for the weather. The North Pole Times will keep you informed while subtly reminding the kids of some of the basics of growing up.

Join Elvin Elf, Waldo Elf, Eugene Elf and Jiller Elf as they bring to you a daily update of what's happening at The North Pole. Every day from Thanksgiving through December 26, you and your children will keep informed of North Pole happenings. Written by award winning producer Brian Pienkoski, The North Pole Times is a wonderful learning tool encouraging your children to read. From the reindeer games, to the BIG day, The North Pole Times is Santa's "Official Newsletter"(sm).

Follow ALL the stories behind the scenes, see what Santa and the elves are up to on a daily basis. Let the excitement begin, don't let a day go by... The North Pole Times is now a Holiday Tradition!

PS: In case you were concerned, we at the North Pole Times are SURE everything will turn out right this Christmas and the holiday will proceed without a hitch.

Holiday treats for the whole family! Now you can look right into Mrs. Claus' cookbook to see what she prepares for Santa and all the elves. Find the secret to baking Santa's Favorite Cookies! (Be sure to leave a few on Christmas Eve.) Perhaps a traditional English Holiday Pudding strikes your fancy or some festive appetizers for your holiday party. Not just for kids... grown ups will like this too!

Give your child a special treat this holiday season. Have them send an email message to Santa and see their eyes light up 24 hours later when Santa replies knowing exactly what he/she wants for Christmas! Simply enter your child's Christmas list on the form at the "Post Office" (one item minimum), personalize it with your child's FIRST name (optional), and enter the return e-mail address where your child will receive their SECRET PASSCODE.

The return message will be available at Santa's Post Office 24 hours later.

(We believe an instant response takes away from the authenticity. Besides, with all the children in the world, how can Santa respond so quickly? He keeps pretty busy up here at the North Pole.)

Simply have your child log in using the passcode sent to the email address you provided. If you choose, it will be personalized with the child's first name and include their Christmas list within the body of the message. Each child will receive a random e-mail message from Santa.

If you decide NOT to enter your child's first name, no worries... Santa will still reply.

If Santa receives more than one request from the same child name at the same e-mail address, a message from Mrs. Claus will appear explaining that Santa already received the email and how busy he is replying to all the e-mail messages from all the children around the world. She will let the child know to come back tomorrow (24 hours later) to get Santa's response.
