Lots of making today at Toddler Group – sequins and shredded tissue paper here,there and everywhere but beautiful baubles were made and a simple nativity. I think I prefer sequins instead of glitter for making baubles and the children loved them.
I love celebrating Christmas at Toddler Group 🙂
All you need to make these decorations – circles cut out of card (I use a paper punch), an oblong with a hole for string, glue and sequins. I’m going to ask parents to put the child’s name and date on the back so that this becomes a keepsake.
To minimise sequin spillage (!) each child will have a paper plate to catch sequins! (I hope this works)
I bought some nativity foam stickers from Baker Ross for our Toddler group craft. This was a last minute purchase! They are lovely but the stable is the same size as the people so I cut out a stable shape and added some hills to make more of a picture.
We made these last year and in a couple of weeks time will make them again at our Holiday Bible Club Christmas Special. The paper plate is cut to form a simple manger shape and then the plate is decorated using coloured tissue paper, a star and some shredded tissue paper. Once this is all done you fold the plate in half so it stands up! This is very simple to make and looks great.
Here’s the one I made last year….
‘For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour who is Christ the Lord.’
A lovely song – will always remind me of my own children’s nativity performances 🙂
The angels visit the shepherds paper plate craft
‘For nothing will be impossible with God’
something to listen to
An angel to make – you need
- ice cream paper cup
- pipe cleaner
- heart shaped wings
- circle face
- pencil/crayon to draw on the face
- shredded tissue paper or wool for hair
‘And the angel answered her, ‘The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy-the Son of God.’
This is an easy Christmas wreath decoration using cut outs from Christmas cards and painted paper plate.
