We wanted to share some of our favorite holiday crafts that our little ones have done this season---some at home, some at school! So check out the BIG list below for some great Christmas project ideas for little ones...
Santa Mask: Cut out a; triangle out of red construction paper. Cut out a wreath (face) from a white paper plate. Staple the hat onto the face. Glue cotton balls onto Santa's hat. Add little white strips of paper for Santa's beard.
Christmas Tree: Use a paper towel roll/toilet paper roll for your paintbrush. Dip in the green paint and paint all over the white paper. Add a stump with brown construction paper. With finger paint, add different colored Christmas lights. Add stars or other stickers for ornaments.
Paper Ornament: Cut out an ornament shape on construction paper. Paint with glitter glue all over the ornament.
Kissing Reindeer: Make two upside down handprints on a piece of construction paper with brown paint. Add antlers, nose, and eyes. Add stickers, if you would like!
Reindeer Ornament: On a small circle, make a fingerprint using brown paint. Add eyes and antlers! This was backed on construction paper and a pretty paper doily. What a cute addition to our tree this year!
Reindeer Frame: $1 frame from craft store, painted brown. Then handprints on brown paper for antlers, eyes & a pom pom nose!
Salt Dough Ornaments & Handprints: 1/2 cup salt, 1/2 cup water & 1 cup Flour. Kneed dough, roll & make shapes or handprints. Bake for 2 hours at 250 degrees.
Hand painted ornaments: We got these for .50 cents at the craft store. Maggie painted them & we used them for teacher, neighbor & family gifts. We added colored pom poms & glitter to some of them too.
Finger Print Gift Tags: Cut card stock & punch a hole in it (or buy plain white gift tags at craft store). Then have the kids use their fingerprints to make these fun designs.
Rice Christmas Tree: die uncooked rice with food coloring or paint. Make a tree shape with glue & let the kids make & decorate a tree. This makes a cute card.
Reindeer Handprint Cards: This is perfect for grandparents!
Snowman Puppets: Since everyone had so much fun with the Leaf Puppets, here's a winter version. Use cotton balls or white pom poms on a popsicle stick. Glue on eyes & pipe cleaner arms. The scarf is a small piece of ribbon.
