Paper Plate Santa Craft
This paper plate Santa would be fun to make at a Christmas get together or even a classroom holiday party. It would add such a fun touch to a Christmas-themed door, hang it up instead of a wreath or turn it into a puppet for kids to play with.
Toddlers, preschoolers and even school-aged kids will love turning a paper plate into this cute Santa this Christmas!
Materials Needed to Make a Santa Paper Plate
– Large paper plate
– Paint for Santa’s face – you can get an assortment of colors here.
– Glue – we like to use tacky glue which is perfect for kids to use but also works well on pom poms and cotton balls! Hot glue is also great for pom poms (with adult assistance).
