Need a fun Christmas craft for you preschool class or your kids at home? In this article I will talk about how to make a Silly Santa Christmas ornament suitable for children of all ages.
1. Manila Folders
2. Red Construction Paper
3. Crayons or markers
4. Cotton Balls
5. Googly Eyes or magazine cutouts of eyes
7. Magazine cut outs of noses
When working with younger children teachers should pre-cut the shapes needed to make this craft. You will find a printout for these shapes as a part of this article. If you decide not to use googly eyes, you will want to cut out both eyes and noses from some scrap magazines.
If you are working with older children feel free to let them cut out the necessary shapes and magazine pieces.
When you are done cutting you should have 2 pieces, a Santa hat cut from the red construction paper and a face shape cut from a manila folder. Let the children pick out 2 googly eyes (or magazine cutouts) and a nose cutout and have them glue it to the face shape. The children can draw the mouth on with crayons or markers.
Next have the children glue one cotton ball on the top of the Santa hat, and some more along the bottom edge of the hat. When this is completed and dry let them glue the hat onto the face. Once the glue has dried the teacher can staple or tape on the string to the back of the ornament!
When you are finished you should have some silly looking Santas! This craft is a great Christmas gift to bring home for Mom, Dad, Grandma or Grandpa to put on the tree. If you don’t want to make ornaments, take away the string and tape them to the walls to decorate your classroom for the holidays.
