Did you know that I have never seen a poinsettia plant before I came to the United States? That's right - it was not known in the former Soviet Union where we were more apt to decorate with red stars for New Year :) Now, however, we welcome poinsettia to our house during Christmas season - both real plants and crafts. I collected some of the best poinsettia crafts for kids and adutls to share in this roundup.

Poinsettia Crafts for Kids

This "process art" poinsettia sponge stamped art from A Little Pinch of Perfect is great for younger children and can be as easy as one color stamping project or you could include two colors for poinsettia leaves and add some gold glitter too.


Another "process art" idea - make poinsettias using yarn, from 3 Dinosaurs.




This project from Craft Klatch does not require fancy materials and produces a beautiful toilet paper roll poinsettia.


Another great recycled art idea - a plastic bottle poinsettia ornament from Mama Miss

This felt poinsettia craft from DIY Inspired is better suited for older kids since it involves a hot glue gun, but the results are lovely.
