Christmas Wreaths for Preschool
Making A Christmas
Children can be very
inventive and with their imaginations they can come up with some pretty cute
ideas for Christmas decorations. Preschoolers are no exception. This year
decorate your classroom with homemade wreaths made by your class. They will
be fun to make and will help brighten up any classroom for the holidays.
Start by cutting wreath
shape forms out of green construction paper. You can find free templates on
After you have the
wreaths cut out you will need to supply your preschoolers with Christmas
stickers, colored pencils, glitter, small red bows and glue. There are
numerous things you can use to decorate with. Any type of craft item can be
used as you see fit.
Next supply the children
with a few pictures of wreaths. This will help them to understand what they
should be striving for with their own wreath. They may have wreaths on their
front doors at home, but this type of wreath is a little different and might
be hard for a preschooler to comprehend.
Let the children use
their imaginations. It is easy to step in and try to help but this is their
creation and with the right items they will make a wreath that fits their
style and satisfaction.
Allow them to use the
stickers to decorate around the wreath. They may even find a theme they want
to go with. For instance they might want their wreath to be nothing but
snow. Snowmen and snow glitter will adorn their wreath in this instance.
Help them apply the snow glitter by adding small amounts of glue or paste to
their wreath and then just sprinkle on the glitter.
They can draw pictures on
their wreath, add bows and other types of glitter to them. Maybe one of your
preschooler wants nothing but silver and gold on their wreath. They can use
gold and silver colored pencils to adorn their wreath with Christmas bulbs and
finish it off with gold and silver glitter.
preschoolers decide to make of their wreath it is sure to be interesting and
exciting for both of you. Allow them the time and space to show their
creativity. Once everyone has finished, decorate your classroom with all the
different wreath creations. Your preschoolers will be excited and have that
Christmas sparkle in their eyes for the whole month.
