What to do

  1. Print and cut out Santa’s body, hat, hat fur, pompom, face, neck pieces. (You can draw your own hat and face too if you want to be very creative!)
  2. Colour in the hat red (leave the fur and pompom white).
  3. Using glue, stick the body to the neck piece.
  4. Stick Santa’s face onto the neck.
  5. Stick on the hat with hat fur and pompom on top.
  6. You can make a hole in the top of the hat and tie a piece of string if you want to hang it or use blu-tak to stick it to the wall.
  7. Every day cut off the bottom day as you continue the countdown for Christmas!

Here’s our final Santa that we made:
