Santa Clause Craft

Here’s an easy and fun Santa craft to do with your kids this Holiday Season!

Red Construction Paper (For hat, nose and Holly Berries)
Light Pink Construction Paper or Peach colored (for face)
Black Construction Paper for eyes (I used a 5/8″ hole punch for eyes and berries)
Green Construction Paper for Holly Leaves
1 Sheet of any colored construction paper you choose for background
Cotton Balls (For hat and beard)

Print off my my Santa Template, and cut out. Trace each item on appropriate colored paper and cut out.

Glue cut out pieces onto construction paper background. Glue on face first, then hat, eyes, nose and mustache. Glue on cotton balls on tip of hat, brim of hat and all over for beard.

I’ve also seen this used as an Advent Calendar, Instead of gluing on all of the beard, simply write numbers 1-25 where the beard would go and glue on one ball a day until Christmas!

    Very cute. I was just planning something like this and you saved me some work. I love the counting idea of it too. Thanks!
