Third Grade Christmas Activities: Santa Craft

See more activities in: Third Grade, Christmas

This Santa Claus craft is made to look like the jolly holiday icon himself. This clever Santa Claus craft is made to look like the holiday figure with a red suit! Reminiscent of the classic Christmas figure without going over the top, this is the perfect activity for older kids who still love cuteness and candy. Make a Santa Claus craft with your child this holiday season.

What You Need:

  • Small terra cotta pot
  • Red paint
  • Black paint
  • Paint brush
  • Washer
  • Silver glitter glue
  • Red tissue paper
  • Paper tape
  • Glue

What You Do:

  1. Help your child set up her workspace by layering a few sheets of newspaper over a table.
  2. Have your child paint the outside of the pot red. (Depending on the look she's going for, you may want to encourage her to add at least a couple coats of paint.)
  3. Allow paint to completely dry before moving forward.
  4. Let her carefully run a line of paper tape just under the lip of the terra cotta pot. This will help prevent the black paint from getting onto the rest of the pot.
  5. Have your child paint the rim of the pot black.
  6. Help her remove the paper tape as gently as she can. If she yanks the tape off, some of the red paint might rip up as well.
  7. Let her glue a silver washer on the black "belt."
  8. Have her draw a line of silver glitter glue around the washer to create a little holiday sparkle.
  9. Line the inside of the pot with tissue paper and candy! She now has a delightful treat holder to keep for herself or to give away as a present.
