Santa shape craft

Sharing is caring!

We love crafting with shape and started our series of shape crafts with this shape Santa. Three years later we are back with an updated Santa shape craft. We added more shapes not only for the body for also for other elements like the mustache or the hat pom pom.

Santa shape craft for kids

A nice way to combine Christmas craft activities with shape unit learning. Kids will cut and glue different shapes piece by piece to create Santa.

Here are the shapes that kids will get to work with:

  • HEAD: circle, square, triangle, rectangle, oval, hexagon
  • FACE: circle, rectangle, oval
  • MUSTACHE: rhombus, oval
  • HAT POM POM: circle, hexagon
  • HAT: triangle
  • HAT BRIM: rectangle
  • NOSE: circle

As you can see there are several shape choices for some elements (head, face, mustache and hat pom pom) and other have only one shape option, like the nose.

HOW TO MAKE A SHAPE Santa CRAFT

The shape Santa template comes with two versions:

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

Glue the face to the top of the head. Look for the perfect face shape (not all face shapes match the head shapes).
