It’s a really fun Christmas craft activity from Mud Mates and easy for toddlers and pre-schoolers to do with a little help from you.

Why not make a new one every year and keep a record of the size of their hands and fingerprints as they grow!


What you’ll need

 
  • 5 pieces of A4 green card
  • Pencil or pen
  • Scissors
  • PVA glue
  • Paint brush for gluing
  • Wreath decorations – ribbon, sequins, stickers, glitter etc
  • Red ribbon (optional)


To make your Christmas wreath


1. Using the pen or pencil, draw around your child’s hand onto the card. Repeat this several times until you have around 10 handprints.

2. Cut out each of the handprints using the scissors.

3. Use the PVA glue to glue the handprints together in a circle to make your Christmas wreath (see image). Overlap the handprints slightly as you go.

4. Using the craft materials (ribbons, sequins, stickers etc), it’s time for your child to get creative and decorate the wreath.

5. Once their wreath design is complete, either make a bow with the red ribbon and glue it on to the bottom of the wreath using the PVA glue or draw on a red ribbon if it’s easier.

6. Once the wreath is complete, hang it on your front door or one of the doors/walls in your house. The Christmas wreath also makes a great personal gift for grandparents and other members of your family.
 

Tips

 
  • If you don’t have green card you can always paint white card with green paint and wait for it to dry before using.
 
  • When using PVA glue, it’s always a good idea to protect your table top from glue spills with newspaper or a fitted tablecloth. It’ll make cleaning up a lot easier too!
