Some Seasonal Art & Craft ideas

Posted by Administrator on December 7, 2012

The availability of information and ideas via the internet although welcome, can be mind numbing.  This time last year we posted links to art & craft ideas we thought you’d find inspiring.  We’ve continued to bring you links and posts as they are posted by others, but we thought it was time to stop and look back at the brilliant ideas that otherwise may be forgotten.


Red Ted Art had a number of blogs specifically focusing on festive crafts. Using cookie cutters to make Christmas Cards and decorations. Some elves made from pine cones and a bumper Christmas Get Crafty blog.





Hands On as We Grow has 30 homemade ornaments you can make in class.

Sun Hats & Wellie Boots have a simple but effective spinning snowman  & snowman cards to share





One that proved to be very popular during the month was a recipe for snow play-dough from Nurture Store, perfect for making snowmen.

Salt dough is a staple in the art and craft experiences of our children and these step by step instructions elevates the humble salt dough to the heights of being used to create Christmas tree decorations.


Teach Preschool showed us how we could use paper towel inserts to bring circles to life.

Christmas Baubles from the Guardian but you’ll have to make them first to figure out how difficult/easy it is before you introduce it to children.




Play Resource have some lovely creations for Christmas

What can you do with paper plates? A Little Learning for Two shows you how to make a cute paper plate Christmas Tree.
