Santa Claus

Santa Claus

This hanging Santa is simple to make from a semicircle of card. The size of circle can be varied to make a larger or smaller Santa. As an extension, children could add string arms or legs with card mittens or boots. For a simpler option, ‘flat’ Santas could be made from triangles of card.

Skills: glueing; cutting

You will need: Red, pink and green card; cord; cotton wool; sequins; glue and scissors.

1 Cut circles of red card about 18cm in diameter. Each child will need one of the resulting semicircles.
