Paper Chain Christmas Craft
Paper Chain Christmas Craft

Remember how fun it is to make paper chains? Our Christmas-inspired paper chains will help get your little ones into the holiday spirit. To set up this craft, you just need strips of construction paper in various Christmas colors.

Set out cotton balls for Santa's beard, markers, and sugar glue to attach embellishments onto your paper chains. You can make just about anything your imagination comes up with. A few ideas to get you started - Santa, a Christmas tree, and a snowman. A fun idea would be to make a Christmas countdown calendar out of paper chain. Your little ones can tear off a chain each day until Christmas.

Supplies:

  • assorted colors construction paper (cut into 1” by 4” strips)
  • sugar glue (recipe follows)
  • stapler
  • markers
  • cotton balls
  • stickers

Directions: 

  1. Bring two sides of a piece of construction paper into a loop. Staple shut.
  2. Loop another piece of construction paper through the first loop to create a chain.
