Christmas is approaching, and the month of December is one that is full of festivities. To celebrate the month of December I share 2 Christmas crafts that you can do with your children or students.
- Yarn Christmas Tree
For this activity, you will need a paper plate, scissors, a hole puncher, green yarn, glue, pom poms and a plastic needle. Begin by cutting a triangle in the middle of the paper plate, then with the scissors create holes around the triangle, this will be the shape of the christmas tree. Depending on the age of your child or student, they can do this part of their craft on their own. Then, with the plastic needle, children will pass the green yard through the holes in a zigzag pattern. Once done, they can use the pom poms as christmas ornaments and glue them on the paper plate, they can also put a sticker star and pour glitter. You can also make this activity into a Christmas ornament! Hole punch the paper plate at the top then add string to it and it'll make an adorable ornament to decorate!
- Personalized Christmas ornament
This activity is really fun and can be a tradition for every year as your child starts to grow up! You will need clear plastic ornaments, here is a link to how they look and where to purchase. Children can fill the Christmas ornament in any way they like, whether that be filling it with glitter, painting it, or adding googly eyes, and making it a reindeer! You can also put a picture of your child or student to make it an ornament that is much more personalized.
