Reindeer Christmas Craft
The reindeer craft is an adorable way to get kids excited about Christmas day. They are fascinating animals, and kids will learn a lot about them. Use them to study reindeer or caribou, and then create this fun craft to talk about the creatures that pull the sleigh.
Christmas Present Craft
Everyone loves giving and receiving gifts, so use this sweet craft to show kids how to give gifts to loved ones. Use these as conversation starters or as Christmas cards for friends and family. Then, print them in all sorts of colors for various wrapping options!
Christmas Ornament Craft
Decorate your bulletin boards and walls with these lovely ornaments. They are simple to make and can be printed on various construction paper or cardstock colors. Leave out the different pieces and let students mix and match colors to create all sorts of baubles.
Christmas Elf Crafts
Kids LOVE elves and everything they do to help Santa. Use these adorable Christmas crafts to decorate your walls. Talk about how the kids can be amazing helpers all year (to teachers and parents). Use the elf crafts as a way to show kids how being helpful is a great trait to have.
Christmas Tree Craft
Print these simple craft templates and let kids cut and paste their festive trees. Print the templates on colorful paper or let the kids color each piece themselves. They might get creative and make a pink or white tree with fancy decorations!
Christmas Wreath Craft
These Christmas wreaths are the perfect way to practice names and letter recognition. First, use the ornaments on them to spell student names. The kids will love seeing their names displayed around the room! If you don’t want to decorate them with student names, print the circles on colorful paper and leave them blank.
Christmas Stocking Crafts
These sweet Christmas stocking name crafts are a fun and easy way to practice name writing. Print the piece and let kids assemble them using their gluesticks and scissors. When they are finished, have them write the letters of their name on the dotted lines. If you don’t want their names on them, use the holly berries to decorate instead.
Santa Hat Name Craft
Kids will love adding the letters of their names to this cute Santa hat. I like to print the squares in different colors to make the hats more colorful. Choose any colors you would like and let the kids add their letters or write them beforehand.
Santa and Mrs. Claus Craft
Don’t forget to make a Santa and Mrs. Claus craft! Christmas isn’t complete without their presence. These crafts are so much fun, from their rosy cheeks to their black boots. Of course, there are many pieces, so little fingers may need more help than usual. But they will look fabulous on the wall in the classroom or at home.

Before you head out on holiday break, be sure to complete this hilarious craft and writing activity. What would your kids do if they found Santa stuck in the chimney? Help them brainstorm fun ideas to get him out safely. Complete the simple craft and then write about ways they could get Santa out! They will have a blast coming up with ideas!
