Not only will she keep her mind occupied and her hands busy, but she’ll also be able to exercise her creativity while having fun at the same time.
Santa Handprint Christmas Card
Before your little one begins with this craft, be sure to have all the pieces of Santa’s head and beard already cut out to minimize the prep-work your toddler has to do. On the front of a folded construction paper, have your toddler glue on all the different parts of Santa’s head until the entire image is complete. Inside the card, they’ll be able to write, draw or scribble any words of greetings to the special recipient of the card.
Christmas Tree Ornament
Nothing goes better on a Christmas tree than a Christmas tree ornament. This fun and whimsical ornament is made from Popsicle sticks, pieces of felt, pompoms and string. First have your toddler color the Popsicle sticks either a traditional green or any color they want. Next, glue the sticks together to form a triangle and add a piece of rectangular brown felt to the bottom for the trunk of the tree. Finally, decorate the sticks by gluing on pompoms, little circles of felt, and/or glitter to represent the ornaments. Tie a string at the top, creating a loop and hang on your Christmas tree.
Wooden Spoon Rudolph
Since mom has about a hundred wooden spoons in the kitchen, surely she won’t mind you take one for your wooden spoon reindeer craft. Along with the spoon, you’ll also want to have some construction paper, a bow or ribbon, a red pompom for the nose, and googley eyes. First and foremost, paint your wooden spoon a dark brown. Next trace both hands unto the construction paper, color it a lighter brown then cut them out. Glue the hand antlers to the back of the head of the spoon and the eyes and nose on the front. Finish it off with a bow on the handle and you’ve got Rudolph, the red-nose wooden spoon reindeer.
Have you been waiting forever for that first snowflake to fall from the sky? Wait no longer and make your own snowflakes that’ll help to usher in the winter snow. It’s time to put all those empty rolls of toilet paper you’ve been holding on to to good use. All you have to do is cut the rolls into several circular segments. Slightly bend the segments in half until they form a leaf-like shape. Paint each one white then dust with a bit of glitter for extra shine. Glue five segments together at the tips to form what looks like a flower shaped snowflake. These can also double as ornaments on our tree.
Popcorn garlands, because every kid should experience the joy and tradition of making one of these at least once in their life; even if mom never does use it to decorate the Christmas tree. All you need for this wonderful project is a bowl of popped popcorn and needle and a thread. Thread each individual kernel through until you have a long garland of stringed popcorn. Tie off the ends so the popcorn doesn’t slip off and use it as a garland for the tree, the fireplace mantle, or wrap it around your shoulders for convenient and accessible movie snacking while you watch A Christmas Carol.
