DIY for the Holidays With YouTube Kids


Decorate your Christmas tree or your house for the holidays with a crystal snowflake ornament.

It’s time for families to roll their sleeves up for a little bit of festive DIY. To help celebrate the holidays, the YouTube Kids app has launched 12 Days of DIY featuring fun, kid-friendly holiday projects to help all families get into the spirit of the season. From ideas for festive cupcakes and gingerbread houses, to ornaments, there’s something for everyone.

The YouTube Kids app makes it easier for children to find videos on topics they want to explore and is available for free on Google Play and the App store. The app also recently rolled out a new feature that continues to put parents in the driver’s seat so that they can decide what content is right for their family. More information the latest parental controls may be found here.
