Santa’s Beard: Cut out some simple shapes such as a face, eyes, nose and hat with a pom-pom. Explain what each part is to your little one, and let him make Santa’s face. Then pass him some torn white paper, and he can have fun creating Santa’s white beard!
Paper Plate Snowman: This is a very simple yet fun project to do with your toddler. In fact, I think it’s probably one of the most popular Christmas activities for kids for that reason! All you need is paper plates, black construction paper (for the eyes and mouth) and orange construction paper (for the nose). Be sure to cut the nose into a long triangle to resemble a carrot! You could also use markers or crayons in place of the construction paper.
Paper Plate Reindeer: So cute and fun to make! A keepsake as well as you are going to need to trace your toddler’s hands for antlers. Let him color the paper plate brown (the side you would eat on). Then you fold the bottoms inward to make a point on the bottom (looks sort of like a piece of pizza!) Use paper to cut out two white circles, and two smaller circles in black for eyes. To make a red nose, you could either use a pom-pom or red construction paper, glue it to the point you made by folding the sides of the plate inward. Finally, trace your little one’s hands on brown paper. Thumbs inward, glue the from the back of the plate! Don’t forget to date it so years from now you can remember how small his hands were.
Decorate a paper tree cut-out: Cut out a Christmas tree using green construction paper and a star from yellow construction paper. Gather a bunch of art supplies such as pom-poms, buttons, glitter, circles or other shapes from different colored paper. Don’t forget the glue! Place the tree and the supplies in front of your toddler and let him decorate his tree!
Construction Paper Ornaments: You can use any color construction paper you want, or you can cut them out on white paper, and let your tot use crayons. Cut the paper into the shape of a round ornament. Get out those craft supplies again, such as pom-poms, buttons, glitter or stickers. Let him go to craft crazy! Cut out a bunch and then string them all together to make a garland of his decorated ornaments and hang it in the house!
Christmas activities for kids are fun to pull out every year when you start to decorate! They add something special to your holiday decor, not to mention the memories you have made with your child. Maybe you have started something they can pass down to their children.
