Are you looking for a fun and easy little craft to do with your little ones? Well, if you have cotton balls around your house, you can probably make a santa. Here are a couple that I came up with this morning, while trying to entertain my 2 year old. We made them both in about 15 minutes, but she played with them for hours.
- Supplies – 1 clear cup, 1 cotton ball, 2 googly eyes, glue, 1 red muffin cup, 1 Q-tip, and pink paint.
- Directions – Turn the cup upside down. Turn the red muffin cup upside down and glue to the bottom of the cup. Pull apart the cotton ball to make a beard, fuzz for the Santa hat, and a top ball for the Santa hat. Adhere in the appropriate places with glue. Use the Q-tip and the pink paint to make cheeks and a nose. (If you would rather, you can use your little ones pinky fingerprint to make the cheeks.) Adhere the eyes and enjoy.
Popsicle Stick Santa
- Supplies – 1 popsicle stick, 2 googly eyes, 1 cotton ball, glue, and red foam, construction paper, or cardboard
- Directions – Cut the foam, paper, or cardboard in the shape of an elongated Santa hat. Adhere to the popsicle stick. Pull apart to cotton ball to make a Santa beard, fuzz for the edge of the Santa hat, and a little ball for the top of the Santa hat. Adhere in the appropriate places. Adhere the googly eyes.
**If you don't have googly eyes, there is no need to go out and buy them. Just use a little liquid paper and a black Sharpie to make the eyes. That will work great.
