Day 5 of Christmas Fun!

Wooohooo, day 5 is here already. Today's post is going to be about making a Santa craft using a paper plate! This went down a storm with the kiddos and just looked fab when it was all put together.

Just follow the directions below to learn how you can make one of these with your students!

You will need
Paper plate
Cotton wool balls
Santa hat template
Red Glitter/Paint
Skin tone paint
Small red pom pom
Googly eyes

  • Mix together the paint to get the skin tone that you want to use, paint the paper plate this color/colour and leave to dry.
  • While the paper plate is drying, cut out and decorate the santa hat, red glitter always goes down great and adds extra sparkle to it, don't forget to place a white cotton wool ball at the end! We also use cotton wool scrunched up for the fur lining on the bottom of the santa hat.
  • Once the plate and hat is dry, staple the hat to the paper plate
  • Use glue around the edges of the paper plate and add cotton wool balls all the way around it
  • Place 2 googly eyes and a red pom pom in the middle of the plate for eyes and nose.
And that's it - you have made a Santa paper plate craft! 

As always, if you use this activity, don't forget to take a picture and tag me in it on instagram @teachingautism - I love seeing all the crafts you guys do!
