I didn't realize how long it has been since I last posted. Claire, Simon and I have been so busy making Christmas crafts that I've hardly had any time to post about the crafts that we've been making. The idea behind this one was that you could use simple shapes to create these designs. Turns out they're a little more tedious than I had planned. So this is a craft that you would need to do parts of (like gluing on the hands and feet) and then have your little ones add on some of the other details.
The penguin. This was one of the easiest ones to make. I used a 3" black circle, 2 1/2" white circle, and a small circle punch to create the hat. I cut out two small black wings, and a small candy cane for him to hold. To make the feet I used a small circle punch and cut it into quarters. Then we just glued on the eyes, and drew on the face.
The Santa. I used a 3" red circle and a 3" cream coloured circle that was cut in half. I triangle was used for the hat, and a heart punch for Santa's beard. To make the feet I used a small circle punch and cut it into quarters. I cut out his hands, and made a small belt out of black and green paper. Then we just glued on the eyes, and drew on the face.
The reindeer. I used a 3" brown circle and a 2 1/2" tan coloured circle that was cut in half. I used my snowflake punch to create the antlers. I cut the ears out of the brown paper and a small cream coloured circle for the face. For the collar, I used a red polka dot ribbon. Then we just glued on the eyes, and drew on the face.
The snowman. I used a 3" white circle and then just embellished it a bit. Green mittens, and a small circle punch and cut it into quarters for the feet. A little hat cut out of black paper, and some green ribbon for the scarf.
Claire had a lot of fun drawing all the faces on the banner. To simplify things, you could probably just draw on the hands, it sure would save a lot of time!
