Are you looking for Christmas crafts for preschoolers? Something easy to do and quick to set up? Something that’s pretty enough for them to give to their loved ones this Christmas? With these thoughts in mind, we created these Christmas Cards for Preschoolers to Make. It’s so easy and quick to set up. And best of all, it makes use of scrap paper. You can use either leftover remnants of Christmas wrappers or small bits of scrapbooking paper. And because this craft makes use of paper in various sizes and bright colors, the outcome is beautiful.
Christmas Cards for Preschoolers to Make
What you need:
- Plain white cards
- Colorful scrap paper (Christmas wrapper or scrapbooking paper remnants)
How to make the Christmas Tree Card:
- Cut strips of scrap paper in varying lengths.
- Glue the scrap paper strips from shortest to longest to form a rough triangular shape. This part doubles as a problem solving activity for your preschooler, as s/he compares and determines which length comes next.
- Glue in short scraps of paper for the ‘trunk’ of the Christmas tree. And finish it off by cutting a star shape (an adult may have to do this part) and gluing this on to the top of the tree.
How to make the Christmas Wreath Card:
- Punch out as many small circles as you can. It is best to use double sided scrapbooking paper or colored paper scraps for this Christmas wreath card.
- Draw a circle on the plain white card. Then apply glue all around the circle.
- Pour all the small circles all over the card, making sure the entire circle is covered. Shake off the excess.
- Tie a ribbon and glue it at the bottom of the circle to complete the wreath.
