There are only 5 weeks left of the school year! You know what that means? It’s time to get out the glitter, paimt and crepe paper and emmerse your children in Christmas Craft! Unfortunately it is alays this time of year that the clasroom budget starts to run dry so I have found some 5 year old friendly, cheap and creative ideas you can make at home!
Reindeer Games. How cute is this little guy? Perfect for holding christmas cards! If you look carefully you will see he is made from some paper plates and paper! You could substitue the forks for pipecleaners!
Hand me a Santa. Take some card and paint and a cute little handprint! What a great memento of their 2011 Christmas. If you want to turn it into a keepsake why not put it on a canvas!
Wrap a Wreath. This is an effective and easy family or class project! Just use a wire coathanger, bend it into a wreath shape and then tie hundreds of ribbons on to it! A handmade wreath!
Paper Roll Puppets. Got some toilet rolls and craft scraps! How cute are these little guys! They would make a wonderful puppet show! These are obviously made by an adult but with a little help your child could make their very own christmas puppet!
Santa Sticks. I have these sticks!!! I bought them at a 2 dollar store a while ago waiting to see what I would do with them! You could use felt, paint, material scraps anything you can scrape together! Add some ribbon to the top and hang them from the tree!
Countdown Claus. Is it chirtsmas yet? How many more sleeps? I will definitley be doing this clever idea! LOVE it! Just add a new cotton wall ball to santas beard every day! I am going to send home this one to the students in my class. Once school finishes they will still have more than 20 days to count down until Christmas! Hopefully this helps pass the time!
Footprint Christmas Tree. How cute! A perfect memento of how big they were! You could put it on paper and lmainate it, turn it into a christmas card for family, or print onto a canvas and hang it up each christmas! This is a double winner for me! Great for my class and great for my own children!
So do you have a favourite Christmas Craft?
