Santa Crafts Kids Can Make: 15 Fun Ideas || Letters from Santa Holiday Blog

Santa Crafts kids can make! What better way to keep them busy in December!

Santa Claus is coming to town…and the little ones are soooo excited, aren’t they?! 19 sleeps to go, and already The Littlest Helper is finding sleep impossible! Good old Father Christmas is on their minds night and day, so we might as well meet them where they are at and provide loads of Santa crafts kids can make, because distracting them is most certainly out of the question!

Fortunately, there is no shortage of sweet, simple ideas for Santa crafts to be found. I’m not sure about you, but I am always so grateful to find craft inspiration that let’s me turn to my own craft drawers, instead of having to run off to the store…especially this time of year. You likely have everything you need to do all 15 of the Santa crafts in this post, with the exception of the little piece of wood for #7 (though perhaps you trimmed off a bit of your Christmas tree trunk before you set it up?). Have fun with the kiddies!

1. Paper Plate Santa Claus – I Heart Crafty Things 

How sweet is this little paper plate Santa? And it is so simple, even the tiniest crafter in your house will be able to put it together with just a little help.

This little Santa Finger Puppet is so cute, and so easy. And let’s face it, who doesn’t have stacks of these supplies sitting around waiting to be used? No trips to the craft store required! There are also other little Christmas characters besides Santa Claus, so you will want to take a look!

There is simply nothing that compares to having those little hand-prints for always! And having this beautiful Santa ornament on the Christmas tree is the ideal way to relive the memory over and over every time that Christmas ornament tote gets unpacked. Imagine the smile on his or her little face when they see what you turn their little hand-print into Santa, right before their eyes!

We are always on the hunt for fun new Christmas Card inspiration, and this is the one the Littlest Helper will be crafting up for teachers and family this year! We did something similar two years ago, but it was a Christmas tree instead of Santa, and they were a real hit!

The  Littlest Helper is at an age where she is all about the candlelight. Many a dinner is eaten in semi-darkness at our house these days! I thought these Santa Candle jars would be a win-win – she’ll have a wonderful time painting them up, and we will be able so see our plates again!

    • Thanks Cindy! Nice of you to stop by! I really love all of these…though I know The Littlest Helper is partial to the #7 with the sequins! It’s all about the bling when you are 8 years old!

Let us know what you think!
