And of course, we have the big man himself! My eldest daughter had a lot to say about this design. At first I made Santa Claus too skinny and then the beard wasn’t fluffy enough… This final design has my daughters approval and hope your Arty Crafty Kids enjoy him too!

Unicorns at Christmas, why not? My daughters love everything unicorn related and I thought it would be fun to design some Unicorn in Christmas Pyjamas Puppets. They’re fun to colour and inspire play, and we even have a design your own to get the creative juices flowing!

Santa Handprint Craft: Tutorial 

Arty Crafty Kids | Santa Handprint Craft - A printable Santa Christmas Card craft for kids! simply unfold the handprint beard to reveal your Arty Crafty Kid wishing loved ones a Merry Christmas #printable #christmascraft #kidscraft

Step 1: Download and print the Santa Handprint Craft template onto white card stock! This can be accessed via the Arty Crafty Kids Club.

Paint the large oval a skin toned colour and leave to thoroughly dry. 

Arty Crafty Kids | Santa Handprint Craft - A printable Santa Christmas Card craft for kids! simply unfold the handprint beard to reveal your Arty Crafty Kid wishing loved ones a Merry Christmas #printable #christmascraft #kidscraft

Step 2: Cut out the Santa elements. 

Using red paper, trace around Santa’s hat. 

Using red card stock, trace around the big red nose! 

Arty Crafty Kids | Santa Handprint Craft - A printable Santa Christmas Card craft for kids! simply unfold the handprint beard to reveal your Arty Crafty Kid wishing loved ones a Merry Christmas #printable #christmascraft #kidscraft

Step 3: Stick Santa’s hat to the top of the oval. 

Arty Crafty Kids | Santa Handprint Craft - A printable Santa Christmas Card craft for kids! simply unfold the handprint beard to reveal your Arty Crafty Kid wishing loved ones a Merry Christmas #printable #christmascraft #kidscraft

Step 4: The Big Bouncy Red Nose! 

Using scissors or a paper cutter, cut out two even strips of red paper – ideally, the strips will be no more than 1cm wide and for length, I would recommend cutting the paper from the shortest side of an A4 piece of paper.

Take the two strips and position them in a 90° angle as shown above. Glue the connecting papers together.

Simply fold the bottom strip over the top and crease the fold along the edge. This will make the accordion fold tight!

Arty Crafty Kids | Santa Handprint Craft - A printable Santa Christmas Card craft for kids! simply unfold the handprint beard to reveal your Arty Crafty Kid wishing loved ones a Merry Christmas #printable #christmascraft #kidscraft

Step 5: Continue alternating the strip folds until you’ve used half of the available paper. Once you’re half way, seal the end with glue and cut off the remaining paper. 

Arty Crafty Kids | Santa Handprint Craft - A printable Santa Christmas Card craft for kids! simply unfold the handprint beard to reveal your Arty Crafty Kid wishing loved ones a Merry Christmas #printable #christmascraft #kidscraft

Step 6: Glue the bottom of the accordion fold just below the hat, leaving lots of room at the bottom of the oval. 

Arty Crafty Kids | Santa Handprint Craft - A printable Santa Christmas Card craft for kids! simply unfold the handprint beard to reveal your Arty Crafty Kid wishing loved ones a Merry Christmas #printable #christmascraft #kidscraft

Step 7: Stick the red big nose to the top of the accordion fold. The nose will now stretch and bounce, and will give the handprint beard space to open and close! 

Add eyes!

Arty Crafty Kids | Santa Handprint Craft - A printable Santa Christmas Card craft for kids! simply unfold the handprint beard to reveal your Arty Crafty Kid wishing loved ones a Merry Christmas #printable #christmascraft #kidscraft

Step 8: Using white card stock, trace around a pair of arty crafty hands and cut out. 

Keep alternating the strip folds until you run out of paper and seal the ends with glue.

Step 9: Position the hands as shown above. 

There needs to be a good amount of space between the hands to allow the photo to fully revealed upon opening. 

Arty Crafty Kids | Santa Handprint Craft - A printable Santa Christmas Card craft for kids! simply unfold the handprint beard to reveal your Arty Crafty Kid wishing loved ones a Merry Christmas #printable #christmascraft #kidscraftStep 10: Once you’re happy with the positioning of the handprints, secure each handprint with a split pin.

Wood Slice Christmas Ornaments: Tutorials

Let’s prepare the canvas! 

Coat each wood slice with a thick layer of white acrylic paint. 

We’re aiming for a white smooth surface. If this hasn’t been achieved with the first layer of paint, add another and if necessary, another until the surface is a solid white. 

The quality of the finish will depend entirely on the paint. 

How to Make a Snowman Wood Slice Ornament

Arty Crafty Kids | How to Make Wood Slice Christmas Ornaments - An easy Christmas Ornament for kids to make. Follow our tutorial to create a Santa Claus, Snowman and Penguin Ornaments #kidscrafts #christmascrafts #kids #christmas

The Snowman wood slice design is the easiest of the three…

Start by dipping the end of the paintbrush into the black paint. 

Print two dots for the eyes and a few more for the mouth. 

Arty Crafty Kids | How to Make Wood Slice Christmas Ornaments - An easy Christmas Ornament for kids to make. Follow our tutorial to create a Santa Claus, Snowman and Penguin Ornaments #kidscrafts #christmascrafts #kids #christmas

Thoroughly clean the end of your brush and this time, dip it into orange paint. 

Use the end of the brush to create a carrot nose shape. 

When it comes to painting small features, painting with the end of the brush is a safe option for achieving even and round shapes. 

Arty Crafty Kids | How to Make Wood Slice Christmas Ornaments - An easy Christmas Ornament for kids to make. Follow our tutorial to create a Santa Claus, Snowman and Penguin Ornaments #kidscrafts #christmascrafts #kids #christmas

Leave the design to thoroughly dry. 

To protect the ornament, seal the surface of the design with inexpensive varnish or with a thin layer of modge podge glue. 

How to make a Penguin Wood Slice Ornament 

Arty Crafty Kids | How to Make Wood Slice Christmas Ornaments - An easy Christmas Ornament for kids to make. Follow our tutorial to create a Santa Claus, Snowman and Penguin Ornaments #kidscrafts #christmascrafts #kids #christmasUsing black acrylic paint, carefully create an open-ended heart shape (as shown above) and fill in the space around the ‘heart’ with black paint. 

Dip the end of your paint brush into black paint and create a pair of eyes. 

Use the end of your brush to paint an orange beak. 

Arty Crafty Kids | How to Make Wood Slice Christmas Ornaments - An easy Christmas Ornament for kids to make. Follow our tutorial to create a Santa Claus, Snowman and Penguin Ornaments #kidscrafts #christmascrafts #kids #christma

How to Make a Santa Claus Wood Slice Ornament

Mix the paint to create a skin tone and divide the white slice in half with a line of skin toned paint. 

Arty Crafty Kids | How to Make Wood Slice Christmas Ornaments - An easy Christmas Ornament for kids to make. Follow our tutorial to create a Santa Claus, Snowman and Penguin Ornaments #kidscrafts #christmascrafts #kids #christmas

Fill the upper half of the wood slice with red paint, following the curve down to create a hanging Santa hat. 

Between the skin tone and white divide, add a big red nose! 

Arty Crafty Kids | How to Make Wood Slice Christmas Ornaments - An easy Christmas Ornament for kids to make. Follow our tutorial to create a Santa Claus, Snowman and Penguin Ornaments #kidscrafts #christmascrafts #kids #christmas

Using the end of your paint brush, complete Santa’s face with two black dots either side of the nose.

Arty Crafty Kids | How to Make Wood Slice Christmas Ornaments - An easy Christmas Ornament for kids to make. Follow our tutorial to create a Santa Claus, Snowman and Penguin Ornaments #kidscrafts #christmascrafts #kids #christmas

Complete with a light spread of white paint across the top of the hat and a white pom-pom at the end of Santa’s red hat. 

To protect the ornament, seal the surface of the design with inexpensive varnish or with a thin layer of modge podge glue. 

If you’re wood slices do not have pre-drilled holes for hanging, simply attach a piece of natural string to the back and secure with tape (ideally decorative washi tape).

Step 4: Locate the circles on the body, arms and legs, and create holes with a hole puncher OR if you do not have an available hole puncher (like us), simply pierce the holes with the split pins and spin to create a roomy hole.

Step 5: Place the arms behind the body. Line up the holes and secure with a split pin.

Make sure they’re secured too tightly –  the arms and legs need to have free and easy movement!

Step 6: Once you’re satisfied the arms and legs have a decent level of movement, thread a piece of cotton through the needle and tie a knot at the end.

Pierce the needle through the top of the arm as shown above and thread the cotton across to the other side.

Finish off the join with a knot.

The cotton between the arms shouldn’t be too tight or too loose.  This may take a little trial and error, but you should be aiming for legs that can easily move, with tension still on the thread.

Step 2: Paint the Santa’s face a flesh colour, adding rosy cheeks.

We used a light covering of watercolour paint – it dries quickly and isn’t too heavy, creating a nice skin tone.

Step 4: Trace the nose onto a piece of red card stock. If you’re like me, I tend to keep all the off cuts of previous crafts and have a stock pile of ‘scrap’ that’s perfect for projects like this! 

Trace the hat onto red paper and cut out. 

Arty Crafty Kids | Printable Paper Santa Craft - An engaging and fun Paper Santa Craft for kids. With his bouncy nose and curly beard, it's a Christmas craft that promotes scissor skills and fine motor development #christmas #christmascraft #printable #kidscraft #template

Step 5: Glue to the face onto the backing card. 

Using a paper cutter or scissors, cut a piece of white paper into several strips (approx 1cm wide).  

Glue the tops of each strip around the the face as shown above.

Step 6: Curl the ends of each white strip around the paper and release to create a bouncy curl.

Step 7: Cover the strip ends with the moustache. Try to position them just below the rosy cheeks.

Glue one end of the completed accordion between the rosy cheeks.

The Backstory

Rainbows are a huge source of inspiration within my household, so I wasn’t surprised that her card idea was Rainbow themed. However, I was unprepared for why she wanted to create this card for her Daddy’s Birthday:

” My Daddy is like a Rainbow. He’s happy, funny, very silly and sometimes can be cross, and I love everything about him. He’s just like the song from Trolls [ True Colours] and he’s never scared to be himself”

Heartwarming stuff right?

Printable Rainbow ‘I Love your True Colours’ Card: Materials 

White Stock Card
Paint / Watercolours / Pens or Pencils
Embellishments – Buttons/Sequins
PVA Glue
Scissors

Step 1: Download the templates.

Print.

Colour.

And Cut!

Arty Crafty Kids | Christmas Craft for Kids | Colour and Create Christmas Paper Baubles #christmasornament #christmascraft #christmasbauble #papercraft

Step 2: For best results, use 4 strips of paper for each bauble.

Level the cut up strips of paper and fold in half to create a central crease.

This will be used as a marker for the next step!

Arty Crafty Kids | Christmas Craft for Kids | Colour and Create Christmas Paper Baubles #christmasornament #christmascraft #christmasbauble #papercraft

Step 3: Take a split pin and pierce it through each piece of paper via the crease made in Step 2.

Spread the pieces of paper to form an even ‘snowflake shape’ as shown above.

Arty Crafty Kids | Christmas Craft for Kids | Colour and Create Christmas Paper Baubles #christmasornament #christmascraft #christmasbauble #papercraft

Step 4: Starting from the bottom of the pile, join the two ends of the paper strip. 

Arty Crafty Kids | Christmas Craft for Kids | Colour and Create Christmas Paper Baubles #christmasornament #christmascraft #christmasbauble #papercraft

Step 5: Continue the process of adjoining the paper ends, layering the paper on top of the previous.

Arty Crafty Kids | Christmas Craft for Kids | Colour and Create Christmas Paper Baubles #christmasornament #christmascraft #christmasbauble #papercraft

TIP: A glue stick is perfect for this process. It will not leave the paper soggy or heavy and is plenty ‘sticky’ enough to hold the bauble together!

Step 6: Secure a piece of thread to the head of the split pin and finish off with a few threaded beads!

Free Cat Coloring Page

Arty Crafty Kids | Colorin Pages | Free Cat Coloring Page for Adults

September’s coloring tribe theme was cat coloring pages. I am a self-confessed cat person, with crazy cat lady traits and simply adore all things cat related, so this month I was super excited to be challenged to creating a free cat coloring page. However, my adoration for cats made this challenge extremely challenging, for I wanted to capture their personality, playfulness, elegance, a sense of independence and of course all the beautiful patterns and textures that can be found within luscious furry coats.

I’m sure you will agree, I probably put myself under far too much pressure. Subsequently, and I’m not afraid to admit it, I enlisted the help of a very clever artist to assist with translating the image I had in my head onto paper and I simply adore the end result!

Sharpen the pencils, as I have another free coloring page for you to color! Now I have to admit, the ‘cactus’ theme for this months challenge had me scratching my head a little – I had no idea where to go with it! So you can imagine my surprise that when the pencil hit the paper, this cactus coloring page turned out to be the easiest and most free flowing design I’ve ever drawn.

I loved experimenting with continuous doodles to create fun and irregular patterns – it’s a technique i’ll look forward to using again!

Colouring has become one of my favorite past-times and when you’re downloading one of our free printables, I would recommend using quality paper. It will enhance the vibrancy of the colors and your pencils will be easier to blend, especially if you decide to use a water-soluble pencil or fancy exploring Inktense ink pencils.

To create depth and shade, my weapon of choice is a basic blendable pencil and you don’t need to be anything more than a novice to use them!

It’s all about sitting down, relaxing and allowing yourself to enjoy the flow of coloring without worrying about technical aspects.

Moana Inspired Turtle Coloring Page

Arty Crafty Kids | Free Coloring Page for Adults and Kids | Moana Inspired Free Turtle Coloring Page

Today’s free Moana Inspired Turtle Coloring Page is inspired by the amazing Polynesian tattoo art found throughout the film. In pacific cultures, tattoo’s are deeply meaningful and are unique to each person. They tell a story and serve as a reminder to ones values.

My kids adore the film and have seen it far too many times. The tattoo art intrigued my eldest daughter (7) and has been creating ‘story telling’ art ever since. With this in mind, how could I not get her involved with this months ‘Turtle’ challenge!

Our coloring page is a representation of a sea turtles journey to the sea, with a large prominent lotus flower to symbolise its peace loving and gentle nature.  If you have seen the film, you will notice that the art is uneven, lacks symmetry and full of hand drawn charm – PERFECT,  so I hope you enjoy our quirky looking turtle and it’s been an absolute pleasure to work with my darling girl on this project.

Detailed Butterfly Coloring Page

Arty Crafty Kids | Free Coloring Page | Detailed Butterfly Coloring Page

This month I’ve joined a group of incredibly talented coloring enthusiasts to create a new butterfly themed coloring page as part of a monthly challenge, and oh my goodness you’re in for a treat! As well as my own detailed butterfly coloring page, you will have five more stunning butterfly designs at the bottom of this post to download for FREE!

I loved creating this butterfly coloring page, adding an abstract and slightly obscure element that I hope you will enjoy!

My kids love to critique my coloring pages and sometimes, they can by brutal. In this instance, my six-year old looked over my shoulder as I doodled and asserted that my sketch didn’t look anything like a butterfly! I simply smiled and carried on. After a moments quiet, she added “it doesn’t look like any butterfly I’ve ever seen, but it’s actually quite beautiful and I would love to see a butterfly like that in real life…”

I’ll take that as her seal of approval.

What do you think?
