You’d recognize it anywhere, but you probably wouldn’t expect to see Santa’s jolly belly on a holiday card. Give a holiday greeting that everyone will remember by making this tactile card with your child this year. Its bright, cheery cover gets everyone in the holiday spirit, and a heartfelt message inside will take this craft over the top.

What You Need:

  • Red and black construction paper
  • Pencil
  • Gold glitter glue
  • Glue stick
  • Scissors
  • Cotton balls
  • Glue


What You Do:

  1. Have your child fold a sheet of red construction paper in half to create a card.
  2. Cut a strip of black construction paper that is the same width as the front of the card, and glue it across the middle. This is the belt on Santa’s belly!
  3. Draw a rectangle buckle in the center of the belt with gold glitter glue.
  4. Now your child can pull apart cotton balls, dip them into a little glue, and press them on the card vertically above and below Santa’s belt to create the trim on his coat.

Write a holiday greeting inside the card and share your holiday cheer with someone you love!
