What do you need?

  • Paper plates
  • Pva glue
  • Red and white felt or card
  • Pom Poms

How do you make them?

  • Cut out a piece of red felt the size of half the paper plate. Glue it on.

  • Draw Santa’s face on the bottom half, leaving space for the all important beard!

  • Cut a triangular piece of felt out and stick onto the hat and add a Pom Pom to make the rest of the hat

  • Glue white Pom Poms onto the bottom of the face for the beard

  • If keen, you could also create the body using felt and another paper plate glued on

What can children learn/ develop from this activity?
