Santa Face Paint center of palm down to where the fingers start a flesh color. Paint from the center up toward the wrist and onto the thumb red. Paint the remaining four fingers white. Hand print with fingers pointing downward. Use fingertips to decorate the Santa face with black for eyes. White dots at the base of the red for the hat fuzz and a white dot on tip of the thumb.
Santa Hat Red Construction Paper, Glue, Cotton Balls
Cut out a large triangle out of red construction paper. Glue on the cotton balls to make a white ball on one of the triangle tips, & glue cotton balls along the bottom edge to form the brim. You can also cut out two triangles & tape or staple them together to make a hat to fit the child's head.
Santa (fill with candy or what ever you want) Wrap a baby food jar in red felt, put on some black eyes (you can make it as fancy as you want) made out of felt. The beard can be made out of white felt or you can use cotton. The pattern I use has the moustache and the beard together. I just use elmers glue but you can use what ever you want. For the hat take some red felt cut it into a triangle, glue it together, put a cotton ball on the tip and glue on a white piece of felt for the band.
Put a big picture of Santa and his sack or sleigh on the bulletin board or wall. Have the children cut out magazine pictures of toys to go into the sack and paste onto the picture.
