Christmas Crafts for Children

This is going to be a short little post to show you all some of the amazing things my class has been making for Christmas.  I'm WAY behind on my Christmas shopping AND decorating AND crafting so I'll just post a few pictures for you to enjoy.

All you need is varied sizes of paper 
(I used some leftover scrapbooking paper)
and let the children have fun making their very own tree.

Hand prints and fingerprints make the most wonderful pictures.
This one is especially nice for Christmas!

I cut out a candy cane and the children painted on the stripes. 
This was a great way to work on our fine motor skills!!

I taped off a Christmas tree design with some painters tape and
let the children go wild with red and green paint.
To make it a little more fun, we added rubbing alcohol to the paint.
The alcohol smelled funny and made the paint dried really fast.
(NOTE:  Use a hair dryer and heat up the tape, it releases easier!)

More hand prints!
The stripes on the candy were cut by the children.
Isn't it wonderful?!?!?

Last, but certainly not least is this precious hand print angel.
The body was made from leftover wallpaper!

Thanks for stopping by to visit with us.  I'll be posting more during our Christmas break so I hope you stop back again.
