So, let’s get crafting!
No matter how hard you explain to kids the meaning of Christmas, for them, Christmas remains Santa Claus’s time. After all, who doesn’t love Santa and the gifts he may be carrying? Therefore, let kids make a mini-Santa at home with Popsicle sticks. First, let them paint the lower part of the sticks, stick them together, add cotton to form his beard, buttons for his jacket, a red hat, eyes, and nose. How cute is our little man?
Santa cannot achieve his mission without his little helpers. So why not make elves too? First, stick 4 craft sticks next to each other. Then paint 1/3 of the stick starting from the bottom up with green color. Next cut a green triangle paper taking the width of the sticks and stick it on the top, then cut 2 pieces of red paper in the shape as shown in the picture. Stick the red circle on top of the hat and draw the eyes, nose, and mouth, and you are done.
As simple as they appear. All you need is a set of 3 colored popsicles, colored paper to draw the base and the star, motifs to decorate the tree, and a string to make it a hanging ornament. As you prepare this ornament with your kids, you will notice how creative they can go. They can learn about colors, shapes, and Christmas vocabulary as they prepare their Christmas tree. Wait to see their pride as they hang them on the Christmas tree.
Make them snowy, make them colorful. To make these beautiful snowflakes, you need 4 popsicle sticks and cotton. You can add glitters and sprinkles to turn them magical or stick to the cotton and preserve the cold spirit. Do not forget to hand your kids a burlap string to make them hanging ornaments. No wonder kids will feel the cold breeze of winter as they prepare these snowflakes ornaments to decorate their Christmas tree.
If snowflakes are falling, then it is that time of the year to make a snowman. Oh, we are talking about Popsicle sticks here. But why not use these sticks to complete the set and have snowmen hung next to Santa and his little elves. The picture is self-explanatory and this snowman next popsicles, buttons, an orange piece of paper, black paint, and glue.
Whether you are your pompoms at home or buying some, making them decorating these Christmas stars is super easy. With 5 Popsicle sticks only, you can create a star and stick colorful pompoms or sprinkle a few glitters to give it a magical touch.
Who doesn’t remember the story of the gingerbread man and the old wife chasing him? And who does not crave cookies when they smell the aroma of ginger in the kitchen. As you bake the gingerbread man cookies for kids to decorate, let them get their hands busy making these one-stick gingerbread men!
Teach them young they say. Kids get charmed with the decorated Christmas tree, Santa and his little helpers, the delicious ginger cookies, and the many gifts they will receive. However, the essence of Christmas lies in the nativity and the little Jesus being born on Christmas day. Made with one print-out of a nativity scene and a few Popsicle sticks, this nativity ornament is a wonderful craft to remind kids of the meaning of this festive season.
I love Rudolph. And I love as well the true meaning and messages kids gain when they hear the song and understand the story behind it. As kids create this Popsicle stick Rudolph, you can tell them the story of this reindeer. It is an opportunity to show them how important to accept ourselves and the people around us. Kids can either use a red pompom or cut a piece of paper into a red circle to create a unique red nose. Let them not forget about the antlers.
