With these 3 free Christmas gift box templates from Children’s Ministry Magazine, kids will love making the box as much as the gift that goes inside! (These were created by our illustrious art director RoseAnne Sather!)
You’ll need scissors, markers or crayons, and copies of the Christmas gift box templates.
Ahead of time, download the Christmas gift box templates:
- Gift for Girl The girl’s hands fold into the slot so she’s holding the gift.
- Snowman The box folds so the snowman’s hat goes on his head.
- Train The box folds so the train goes through the tunnel.
Go! This is an easy cut-and-fold craft kids can do.
Step 1: Have kids cut out the Christmas gift box templates on the outside dark solid line. Help them cut the slot where the box tab will insert. Kids can have fun coloring the design.
Step 2: Help kids fold all the dotted grey lines inward so the design is on the outside of the box.
Step 3: Once all the folds are made, fold the box together, tucking the corners into the box and leaving the tab and slotted panels on the very top to close the box.
Step 4: Kids can then fill the Christmas gift boxes with candies or gift cards for someone special.
