Christmas Craft for Preschoolers - Super Simple Christmas Wreaths : Red Ted Art's Blog

Super Simple Christmas Wreath Craft

| December 14, 2012 | 14 Comments

Recently, I was asked to write a simple craft idea for Organic Milk and their “No Nonsense Christmas Guide“… the idea being that you give the kids a range of activities to keep them happy and busy, whilst you get on with the last minute Christmas preparations.

So today, I would love to share these super cute and yet very simple Christmas Wreaths with you.

They are easy and colourful and would make great little Christmas tree decorations, additions to Christmas presents, fix to the front of a card for Christmas card making or just because. Oh and if you children decide to wear them as bracelets,  well then that is ok too. SO long as everyone is happy!

Materials: 1 Pipecleaner per wreather, approx. 14-18 pony beads(though any beads will do), optional – a ribbon for hanging

Messiness rank: 1 out of 5 (the only disaster I can envisage is that the beads may spill on the floor)

Entertainment factor: anything from 10-30minutes depending on child and number of beads

1)      Start threading

2)      When you have enough beads on your pipe cleaner, bend your pipe cleaner up

3)      Add a little twist to secure

4)      And then form a bow and twist in place!

All done. You can now add a ribbon, thread or ornament hook to hang your creation up. We also like adding little ornaments to packets of home made biscuits as sweet little gifts – take a peak at these homemade Christmas cookies here.. or just use these to decorate “normal” presents.

Lovely! Hope you liked this simple Christmas craft ideal for preschoolers and young children (well, not the really little ones that like eating beads of course).

    I’ve been dead in the water this holiday trying to come up with a Christmas craft that I think my two year old would enjoy that doesn’t involve coloring, painting or stickers (which are all great, but I wanted something different).

    I think this could be it…great for taking care of the teacher gift too if it works out :)

    Thanks!
