Christmas Stockings

We may not get a snowy cold Christmas where we need a fireplace with stockings hanging by it but it's still fun to decorate the house with some stocking decorations. Your littlies can make these very simple stocking decorations themselves.

You will need...

  • Stocking cut-out - I make a template so I can trace and cut as many as I like but you could also draw one and then photocopy.

  • Red paint - acrylic, water or Cel mix however I like to use Cel mix as it is glue and paint in one. If you don't have Cel mix you could add some glue to your paint

  • Cotton wool balls

Draw a stocking on a piece of cardboard and cut out the stocking shape.

Have your kids paint the stocking red. (or any colour really, depending on what your Christmas theme is)

Place cotton wool across the top.

There you have it, some lovely Christmas Stockings. Now they can be hung up for everyone to enjoy.

Jingle all the way....celebrate Jesus' Birthday.
