Christmas Craft Ideas for the Classroom!

Christmas Decorations | Teacher Resources | Room Party Tips | Crafts | Books

Children love making crafts for the holidays and as gifts to their parents and/or family! These crafts make great keepsakes and will bring back fond memories in the years to come.

FELT ORNAMENTS - Use felt to cut holiday shapes traced from cookie cutters. Use green for trees, gold for stars, brown for gingerbread men, etc. Decorate with rick rack, buttons, glitter, etc. Punch a hole at the top and use red or green ribbon as a tie. Idea: Have students write their name in glue and stick glitter to glue. These make great Christmas tree ornaments and keepsakes!
