We made a shapely Santa in preschool

While having fun with holiday arts and crafts, we also used the opportunity to review our shapes…

We reviewed triangles and circles by making a Santa puppet from construction paper…

The children simply added a triangular shaped hat, some eyeballs…

Some of the children really like those eyeballs…

And of course, we added cotton balls to finish off our triangle Santa!

In another class, the children added a circle for Santa’s nose…

And more cotton balls…

To make another shapely Santa Clause!

You can also make a Star Santa! See this great post from Irresistible Ideas for Play Based Learning!

And how about a triangle reindeer too!

    Totally love this!
    I could totally draw the shapes for my 4yo & let him cut them out & then go to town gluing them.
