Christmas crafts are always so much fun! Whether you’re looking for another craft to do with your preschoolers or you’re looking for a unique way for kids to leave Santa a note, this preschool Christmas craft is perfect for young kids to make this holiday season.
Christmas List Template
This year, skip the plain paper wish lists. This Christmas present craft hides a hand-written Christmas wish list that your kids are going to love sharing with friends and family (and, of course, Santa).
With just a few simple craft supplies, your kids will be on their way to a fun Christmas crafting session which will result in a list they can present to anyone who asks “what do you want for Christmas”.
What You’ll Need
What You’ll Do
To begin, print out the craft template located at the bottom of this post. I suggest printing it on white cardstock, because cardstock is sturdy and good for tracing the craft pieces.
Next, cut out all of the pieces. Take the two large rectangle templates, and trace around them on the green cardstock.
Take the template pieces for the bow (the two triangles, circle, and two skewed rectangles) and trace around them on red cardstock. If you don’t have red card stock on hand, your preschooler could color it instead.
To put the bow together, glue the two triangles to the backside of the circle. Add the two skewed rectangles to the back of the circle pointing down to complete the bow.
Next, glue the long white rectangle “ribbons” to the present. Add the bow to the top.
Now, you can glue both ends of the present to the long white rectangle. Then, fold back the top present piece and press to crease. Bring the present back to the front. Match it with the bottom present piece and crease it again.
Lastly, write in your wish list ideas in the center, and your Christmas list is complete.
Watch the video below to see the wish list in action.
If you’re crunched for time in a classroom setting, you can pre-cut the pieces. Then, just have kids assemble the present craft and write their wish list inside.
