Christmas Crafts

I work with some really talented creative teachers on my hall. I think you will agree. These ladies are always so encouraging and willing to share their cute ideas! I love my coworkers!

I thought I would share a few of their cute Christmas crafts and maybe you can find an idea for your classroom next week!

Rip and Tear Santa


Our preschool teacher Katherine made these. Have students use fine motor skills to rip strips of paper for Santa's beard. Use a pencil to roll the paper so his beard will curl. His hat is a triangle. His eyes are small black circles. His nose is a red oval.

Reindeer Place Mats



Our art teacher Annette made these with my Kinders. Students cut strips of paper to make a red and green pattern frame. Use a star punch to decorate the page. Trace hands and cut out for reindeer antlers. Laminate for durability.


Paper Plate Christmas Trees


 
Here is another craft from my talented friend Katherine. She teaches preschool. I am making these next week in our Christmas Center Swap with my kinders. The tree is paper plates. Draw lines on paper plates and divide into sections. Allow students to color and cut. Use a hole punch for falling snow.
 

Sweet Treat Gingerbread Men and Women


 
 
This craft is from our second grade teacher and is a hall favorite. If the Lord ever leads me to another school, I am definitely taking this craft with me. She uses butcher paper for the ginger bread men. She uses pillow stuffing for the insides. Some of her gingerbread men have raisins for eyes. Those turn out cute too! She told me to take glue and mix it with a little water. The kids paint the glue on and then sprinkle with brown sugar. She uses this for her outside bulletin board. It says "Jesus is the Sweetest Name I Know." Love!!!
 

Shape Up Nativity


Annette our art teacher uses shapes to teach the kiddos to draw a nativity. Can you spot the shapes?

Snowman Shirts

 
 

Katherine makes t-shirts with her preschoolers every year! They always turn out sooo cute!

Glitter Nose Rudolph



 
This is another one of Katherine's cute crafts. I just love the glitter nose!
 

Glitter Pine Cone Christmas Trees

 
 
This tree comes from Annette. She shouted from the back of the room saying that the tree wasn't finished yet, when she saw me taking a picture! However, I thought it was cute and a neat idea as is!
 



Tell these ladies how cute their crafts are in the comments below. I will share your words of encouragement....I have got to get them to start blogging their cuteness! I can also try to answer any questions you have on how they completed the craft.
