Christmas Activities and Ideas for the Primary Classroom

Christmas is a special time of year.  It is the time of year that we want to make memories with our students.  I have gathered many Christmas ideas and want to share some of my favorite ones with you.

Christmas Arts and Crafts


1.  This year I purchased a membership from Deep Space Sparklers.  My students are loving all the art lessons.  I think it is important for students to draw and use all types of art media.  Here is a cute Folk Art Santa from Deep Space Sparklers.  Click on the picture for a step by step video.

 2.  Here is an easy Funky Reindeer bulletin board that I made with my class.  You can get the FREE pattern from Teach Starter.

3.  I can't wait to have my students make these whimsical Christmas trees. I will give each student a triangle and they will decorate the tree with markers and oil pastels.  Mounting them on black paper really makes them "pop".  I like to add a black and white border to make it look more complete.

Christmas Treat

Here is a fun and easy reindeer treat to make for your students from The Keeper of the Cheerios.  One night I will cut the antlers and the next night I hot glue everything onto the brownie.  They are super easy to make.

Christmas Gift Ideas

This year I want my students to make these stained glass pictures for their parents.  Check out the post from Pocket of Preschool on how to make them.



Here is a cute way to wrap the gifts from Creatively Teaching First.
