10 Craft Ideas To Do With Christmas Presents Coloring Pages
Kids can’t wait for Christmas, so coloring on this theme is always a happily anticipated activity.
Here are 10 affordable, exciting, and creative crafts to do with those finished pages.
1. Decorate a Poinsettia Pot
Many homes have poinsettias around Christmas, so why not dress up that plain planter with a coloring page featuring presents?
Rubber cement or craft glue works best for this, and several pages may be necessary, depending on how big the pot is.
Once the pages are colored and glued to the planter’s surface, the flower should be covered, and several coats of acrylic spray should be added.
Alternatively, the presents can be cut from the coloring page and added to the pot as decals. Either way, the result is beautiful.
2. Make Original Gift Tags
To complete this easy craft, color and cut out several Christmas presents from the selected page and glue them to cardboard.
Write “To and From” on the surface using a black marker, and laminate the tags with contact paper.
Using a hole punch, thread through a piece of packing twine and tie a green or red ribbon around the base for a nice touch.
The tags can be attached to wrapped presents by taping the twine to the wrapping paper.
3. Laminate Prop Gifts
If prop gifts are displayed in a classroom during the holidays, they can be laminated with finished coloring pages to make them extra special.
Invisible glue is best for this craft; the children can sign their names to their artwork before adding them to the packages.
Once added, they can be left in their natural state or sealed in glassine so they can be used as decorations again in future years.
4. Decorate a Mailbox
Christmas present pages are great for decorating mailboxes during the holidays.
The different items on the page can be cut out and creatively arranged on the mailbox by the youngster, or if your mailbox is big enough, the page can be left intact.
Non-damaging putty can be used to attach the page to the mailbox, but if it is exposed to the elements, a coat of acrylic spray should be added. (The page will easily peel off later)
Part of a coloring page can also be used to laminate the inside lid of the mailbox!
5. Make Homemade Wrapping Paper
If those finished coloring pages have piled up, why not use them like wrapping paper?
The theme is perfect, and depending on how much your child enjoys coloring, you probably won’t run out before the holidays!
For this craft, you can use coloring pages like decals over plain, traditional wrapping paper, or the pages can be used in their entirety as the only wrapping.
Either way, this activity is loads of fun for any child.
6. Happy Holidays Door Sign
This easy craft starts with a large piece of poster board in green or red.
Let the youngsters color the presents of their choice and cut the individual packages from the page.
They should be added to the poster board with invisible glue or rubber cement and a special holiday message written with markers or puffy paint.
Christmas ribbon is ideal for making a string to hang the poster, and it can be placed on the front door, in the kitchen, or anywhere you like!
7. Make a List, Check it Twice
This terrific classroom activity will get the attention of any student!
When they finish their coloring pages, have them cut the presents from the page and arrange them on a piece of white craft paper.
They should leave space somewhere on the page for a list, and lines can be made with a ruler to accommodate it.
8. The 12 Days of Christmas
This craft is simple and enjoyable for any child. It requires three coloring pages, which will please the youngsters!
These should be used for front and back covers, with one in the middle, surrounded by six plain pieces of paper on each side.
The ensemble can be put together with a hole punch and paper fasteners.
On each of the 12 days, the child can color or write on the plain pieces of paper in a scrapbook fashion, highlighting favorite things about his or her Christmas vacation.
9. Make Old Fashioned Window Decorations
Old-fashioned window decorations are fun and exciting; youngsters will enjoy making these as a classroom activity.
Once the children have colored and cut out the packages from the various coloring pages, they can be embellished with red and green glitter, real curling ribbon, and pom-poms.
When finished, they can be sealed in glassine and displayed on the classroom’s windows with clear, non-damaging putty.
10. Decorate a Toy Box
If your child has a toybox, there’s nothing better to decorate it with than Christmas present decals.
Once the packages have been cut from the finished coloring page, they can be sealed in contact paper and attached to the child’s toy box with wall putty.
For extra fun, the youngster can write the name of something he or she wants for Christmas on each package!
