Alice has always been a little girl that likes to make things and with Christmas coming there are lots of opportunities for her to get crafting!
I don’t think there is anything better than receiving a homemade Christmas card from a child. I know that Alice’s grandparents would love it and it would become a wonderful keepsake too.
Alice is at the age where she can and wants to do things herself. This is where I have to hold back and remember that the finished product doesn’t have to be perfect, its all about her learning and enjoying it.
To make our snowman Christmas card you will need:
- Black Card
- Cotton Wool
- Pipe cleaners (white, orange and another colour for the scarf)
- Pom Pom
- Glitter Glue
- White Crayon
How to make your snowman Christmas card:
- Fold your black card in half
- Draw two circles on the card in white crayon, as an outline of the snowman
Over to the Child
- Add glue inside the white circles
2. Stick cotton wool to the glue, making your snowman shape
3. Take 2 white pipe cleaners and stick on for the arms
4. Cut a small piece of the orange pipe cleaner and stick on his head for the nose
5. Take the pipe cleaner you’ve chosen for the scarf and stick around the neck and down the front
6. Next take the glitter glue and make some buttons down the front
7. Using the same glitter glue make a hat shape on the head and then stick on the pom pom
8. Put some small dots of glue around the snowman and add cotton wool to make snowballs falling down
9. There you go your finished Snowman Card!
I hope you all have fun making Christmas cards this year with your little ones.
