Christmas crafts for kids

Christmas will be here before you know it. Over the next few weeks I'll be sharing all sorts of Christmas craft ideas so that you have time to decide what crafts you want to make and actually shop for the supplies in time to enjoy your creations during December.

Today I'm participating in the Handmade Holidays blog hop. Lots of other creative peeps are sharing their fun ideas today too, so be sure to scroll to the end of the post to see links to all of the other awesome holiday projects.

If you're looking for Christmas craft to do with school aged kids, these Santa Claus ornaments made of popsicle sticks would be perfect for a class party activity.

To make your own ornaments, you will need:

1. Download the free printable Santa Claus face from the link in the supply list above. Print on cardstock. Cut out each Santa.

2. For each Santa, paint two red popsicle sticks and six white sticks.

3. When the sticks are dry, use hot glue (or Elmer's glue for kids) to attach the sticks to the cardstock background. Start with the red hat pieces, then the beard pieces, then apply the white hat brim piece last.

4. Add a fluffy white pom pom to the point of the hat and glue a loop of string or twine to the back for hanging.

And that's it! It's a super simple craft, but that's what makes it perfect to do with kids.

  1. Adorable! My daughters will love this project. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I love these! I'm saving this one to make with the kiddos this year!

  3. How do you download it??

    1. Scroll up to the supply list near the top of the post and click on the words "printable santa claus craft background." This will open the file in Google Drive. You should just be able to click the download or print button there.

  4. Ok, So I printed the Santa's out, but the look much smaller than what is needed....any tips? It printed 6 of them in one page, is this right guys?

    1. Hey Audrey, they should print out to the correct size, but the craft is made with the MINI popsicle sticks, not the regular sized ones. That's probably where the confusion lies.

    2. Ahhh Ha! NOW that would explain it LOL. Thank you!


Hey readers! Leave me a note... I read each and every comment and I love to hear from you!
