Wanting to create holiday crackers that were kid-friendly, modern and not covered in patterns, Mr. Printables developed a template for this Christmas craft that you can print at home. The anime-inspired Christmas crackers come with expressive faces and personalities that kids will have fun cutting out, assembling and filling with treats that they will enjoy. The beauty of the craft is that the templates can be printed on a colored paper of your choosing, although the owl-like creature on gray paper makes a perfect Totoro lookalike. For more mixing and matching, the downloads also include extra eyes that can be cut and pasted.
To make sure that your crackers have that authentic snap or bang when opened, the only additional thing required for this craft are some Christmas snaps, which can be purchased from most party shops.
