We are working on a Christmas scene as we spend the month of December learning all about Christmas. We have not finished it yet as we will continue adding to it all month, but I wanted to share what we have done so far.
First, Hailey and Hunter added a barn to a black piece of paper.
Hailey added just a few stars to the night sky. Then Hailey and Hunter each made a sheep.
The next day Hunter added a cow.
Hailey added a donkey.
This is our nativity scene so far… we will keep adding as the month goes on.

Another repost from last year:
Here’s what you’ll need: construction paper- 2 white and 1 red, cotton, wiggly eyes and glue.
Make a circle from the white paper. Cut out a hat, mouth and nose from the red. With the other white piece of paper cut out a piece of paper that will be used to glue Santa’s beard onto. Sort of a U shape.
Glue everything together.
The finished Santa Claus.
Here is another very simple and fun Christmas craft you can do with your toddler (or preschooler).
Here’s what you’ll need: paper plate with the center cut out, red pom poms, green paint, something to paint with, 2 red pipe cleaners and glue.
Paint the paper plate green.
Do your best to make a bow out of one of the pipe cleaners. As you can see mine did not turn out very well but it worked just fine anyways.
Once the paint is dry- glue the red pom poms on and then add your bow.
Thread the other pipe cleaner through the top of the wreath- and hang it up. Ours is haning next to our front door and Hailey is so proud to see it there.
This is another repost from last year. But I love it because you can make one every year to track your childs growth.
Here’s what you’ll need: 2 handprints, 1 footprint, wiggly eyes, red pom pom, glue and a piece of construction paper to glue your reindeer onto.
Put everything together.
Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer!
