Gettin' Crafty Holiday Post #2

Two more holiday-themed crafts to share today.

1. Paper Ornaments

  • Construction paper
  • Stencils created from thick paper
  • Yarn
  • Scissors
  • Hole punch
  • Stickers 
  • Crayons and markers

Last year, I prepared for this activity and then no one showed up for the program, so I actually had almost everything premade. I cut out the various ornament shapes we used - gingerbread men, trees, stars, and plain Christmas balls - and also cut apart sheets of stickers to make them into smaller sheets so it would be easier for the kids to share. I punched the holes ahead of time as well, so all the kids had to was design their ornament and attach the string.  

2. Santa Claus Beards
  • Cotton balls
  • Glue
  • Santa Claus coloring sheet
I wasn't actually at the library to see how this one turned out, but the basic idea was to color Santa, then glue cotton balls for his beard.
