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!
Since going back to work about a month ago I have been really struggling with finding time to post crafts. I am going to repost some of our Christmas crafts from last year in case you’re looking for ideas. I really hope to be able to find time to post a few new ones too. Hopefully after the busyness of the holidays is over I’ll have a bit of extra time to get back to posting some crafts.
Anyways- here’s an easy Christmas Tree project:
Here’s what you’ll need: a piece of blue construction paper, 3 green triangles- small, medium and large, a small brown rectangle, glue, glitter glue, sequence (and whatever else you want to use to decorate your tree).
Glue the triangles and the rectangle onto the blue paper to make a Christmas tree.
Glue the sequence on the tree.
Add some glitter glue (or just regular glitter if you don’t mind the mess).
The finished Christmas tree.
