Christmas is around the corner and it calls for another reason to meet our loved ones and spread cheer. Little ones love Christmas, as it connects them to snowflakes, reindeer and of course, Santa Claus!
No Christmas celebration is complete without decorating a Christmas tree and if you’re looking for some fun DIY decorations, then you’ve come to the right place! But first, allow us to tell you why these DIY decorations are special. These are all made from recycled materials, so you can make something new, yet go green at the same time. With these, you’re also teaching your little one that you can get creative while reducing, reusing and recycling! So ready for a Xmas filled with extra cheer?
“Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, had a very shiny nose and a bottle cap!” You can add a twist to the popular rhyme after you make this adorable reindeer with a used bottle. If your bottle is not tinted, cover it with brown paper. Stick googly eyes, a red pom pom nose, and add pipe cleaner horns. Done!
Buttoned up Wreath
This simple and colourful activity will delight your tot. Cut out a doughnut shape from a piece of cardboard (preferably from a cardboard box.) Stick buttons of all colours, shapes and sizes on it. Hang it up with a red ribbon.
Plastic Bottle Snowflakes
The name might sound funny, but the result is beautiful! Just cut out the bottoms of transparent, white soft drink bottles. Paint snowflake patterns on them with white acrylic paint. Hang them up anywhere after puncturing a hole on the top. Viola!
Take an old white sock, stuff it half full with some rice grains. Tie a big rubber band to differentiate the top and bottom halves. Now, tie a smaller rubber band to close the opening on the head. Place a small, colourful sock on the snowman’s head for a snow hat and add other details such as eyes, buttons, scarf and nose!
Paper plate Christmas tree
Easy peasy lemon squeezy Christmas tree with paper plates, paints and glue! Ask your child to paint few paper plates green. Once dry, Cut the plates into thirds. Staple or stick them together to make a tree and decorate as you please!
