Here's a very simple craft that your littlies can make for the Christmas Season.
Paper Plate Christmas Wreath
You will need...
- Paper plates
- Paint - Cel mix is great because it is paint and glue in one. I like to do green paint but you could also do another colour such as gold or silver. If you don't have Cel mix, mix a little PVA glue into some acrylic paint.
- Holly berries - red cardboard circles
- Holly leaves - green leaf shapes cut out of cardboard
- Hole punch
Cut the centre out of a paper plate.
Use the outside piece as the wreath.
Have the kids decorate it with paint/ glue, the berries and the leaves.
Once dried, punch a hole in the top, tie some ribbon through and hang your wreath on the door.
I hope your little people will be as proud as mine was when they see their Christmas creation hanging on the door. As we drove out the other day Miss M said, "Thank you Mummy". I asked her what for and she replied, "For hanging my Christmas thing on the door!"
Jingle all the way... celebrate Jesus' Birthday!
