Christmas Center Activity: Santa Face

Alright teacher friends. I know we're not even halfway through November, but I've already got one eye on the winter holiday season. I'm looking forward to trying this Santa Face activity from Education.com! I'm planning to incorporate it into my winter holiday centers the day before Christmas break. I'll have parent volunteers helping out that day, so this is a perfect activity to kick off our break!

Christmas Center Activity: 
Santa Face
First Grade Math Activities: Santa Face
Easy Santa Circle Craft
This unique Santa is made only from circles. It's true! Your little ones will have a fantastic time puzzling together Santa's face. The challenging part will be that they can only use one shape, the circle! 

What You Need:

  • White, pink, and red construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Small, medium and large circular objects to trace
  • Glue stick

What You Do:

  1. Have children trace a large bowl onto a sheet of pink and a sheet of red construction paper. Cut both circles out.
  2. Encourage them to fold the red circle in half. Then, unfold it and cut it in half.
  3. Lay the red circle on top of the pink circle so it overlaps about halfway and glue it in place.
  4. Ask them to fold two sheets of white paper stacked on top of one another 3 times. Trace a medium-sized circle on the top of the paper and cut out all of the circles at the same time.
  5. Have them arrange them into the shape of Santa's beard. Glue them in place.
  6. Finally, have them trace and cut out two small circles to create Santa's eyes.
  7. Ask: How many circles did it take to create Santa's face?
