How to make the Santa craft
My free Santa name craft template is easy to use as you craft this winter holiday.
Before you know it, your students will be mastering recognizing and writing their names and building upon their fine motor skills with ease. Here’s the step by step guide to creating your very own elf name craft for preschoolers.
Step One: Print
Click the link below to grab the free cut and paste Christmas craft for preschoolers and toddlers.
Print the free Santa craft for kids on colored construction paper or use crayons to allow your students to color their own chimneys and Santas however they like. Coloring these cute crafts is an easy way to add fine motor skills practice to this holiday activity.
We used traditional red, black, and white for Santa’s suit, but feel free to get creative and use whatever color you want.
Step Two: Cut
When you’re done printing, grab your scissors because it’s now time to practice cutting skills. Cutting is such an important skill for this young age group, so try to let them do this part themselves, if possible.
It helps to strengthen their fine motor skills and helps to make each winter holiday craft look unique.
Step Three: assemble
You’ll love that this Santa craft is not just festive, it’s another learning opportunity to teach names this Winter.
After these are assembled, have your students write the letters of their own names on their chimney.
Once you’re done, hang them around the room for the cutest DIY Christmas decorations or show them proudly on your Christmas bulletin board.
