With his pink nose and big white beard, this Santa craft is such an adorable idea for Christmas. We have a template and it comes with big patterns that are easy for little hands to cut out. This is what makes the craft perfect for the classroom as well as at home for preschoolers, kindergartners or older kids.
This Santa is part of a mini series Christmas crafts, together with the gingerbread, reindeer and snowman. I will come back with an elf craft.

- Santa template
- Cardstock paper: white, black, red, beige, pink and yellow
- Black marker
I love crafting with cardstock paper because it’s a sturdy material but you can replace it with construction paper.
HOW TO MAKE A Santa CRAFT
The Santa 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.
