Christmas Crafts for Kids: It’s that time of year again where we do crafts for the holidays. We send them home as keepsakes or presents for parents. It seems trivial in some ways, but as a parent, I do love to pull out those handmade ornaments from when my kids were little. So I guess it isn’t that trivial at all, is it?
The first ornament I want to share is this one using a canvas. First we paint a background color. Next, I paint my students’ hands and press gently with just the top part of the palm touching the canvas. I let my students use Sharpies to add the snowman details.
I use a 3×4″ canvas:
One other ornament I do each year is super simple. It is a fingerprint reindeer on a doily.
I used white doilies and cut red and green circles to fit the middle and then a smaller white one for inside that. The print is just their thumb- Sharpies to add details. Personally I use circle cutters for the shapes, but I use them for everything!
Another ornament we make is this reindeer. Plastic ornament, rolled brown paper, and red pom pom noses. Since this one, I started using googly eyes instead of painting them.
Here are the ornaments I use:
