Last year my husband came across these online Christmas games that he enjoyed playing with the kids. The boys’ favorite game was one where they got to trim Santa’s hair and beard. Helping Santa get bald made them giggle and laugh all the time. Inspired by the game, I created this cute Santa beard craft. Kids can trim Santa’s beard again and again and have fun while practicing their scissors cutting skills.

- circle punch
- googly eyes
Step 1: Start by cutting half of the paper plate outer rim. Punch holes along the edges. Cut big strands of white yarn, fold them in half and thread them through the holes.
Step 2: Paint the inside circle of the paper plate with ivory paint and set it aside to dry completely.
Step 3: Draw a large triangle on the red cardstock paper and cut it out. Fold down the top triangle. Glue a white paper circle to the top of the hat. Cut a strip from the white cardstock paper to glue at the bottom of the red triangle. This will be the hat brim.
Step 4: Once the paint on the paper plate is dried, you can glue the googly eyes. Use a circle punch to make a red circle for the nose and draw Santa’s mouth with a black marker. If you don’t have a circle punch, use a round container to draw a circle onto the red paper and cut it with scissors. Or you can paint the nose with red acrylic paint.
Step 5: Now we can assemble Santa together by gluing his hat and beard on the paper plate.
