Santa card for kids to make

Sharing is caring!

I am a big fan of handmade cards and Christmas is a great opportunity to make lots of them. I like to add a kid-made card to the teachers’ holiday gifts. We’re also making cards for the bus drivers with a little gift card inside. This season I came up with two card ideas: a handprint Grinch heart card and now this Santa card for kids.

Santa is definitely one of our favorite Christmas characters to turn into crafts. We have used a paper plate and yarn to make his beard, a wooden spoon or just paper. Among our favorites is this shape Santa – an educational craft idea that keeps the kids busy and entertained but also helps them review shapes.

How to make the Santa card for kids

The Santa card template comes with two versions:

1. home template – print the template, cut out the patterns and trace them on appropriate colored paper

2. classroom template – print the pattern directly on colored paper and cut them out.

This way you can easily craft with just one or two kids as well as with a classroom full of students.

STEP BY STEP DIRECTIONS FOR HOME CRAFTING

Print the home template. Cut out the patterns and trace them on construction paper.
