Would you like to build a Santa Claus?  This is a great Santa Claus craft for kids, especially children who need a little practice with scissors. This craft is simple and great for a preschooler through elementary school student. Cut out Santa’s beard, hat, arms, body and pants and put them together with glue. Even turn it into an ornament or christmas card and give it as a gift.

We offer 2 different versions of this Build-a-Santa Kit:

  • The color version, for a simple and easy Christmas Santa craft.
  • The blank version (with no color), and use it as a coloring activity and then glue the pieces together.

Each version is 2 pages in length and prints out on 8.5″x11″ US letter paper. I recommend printing it out on a thicker stock of paper if you want to make Santa into an ornament or Christmas card. The finished Santa is about 8.5″ in height.

Do you need help putting this build-a-santa Christmas craft together? Below is what the finished witch will look like after putting it together.
