Decorate the Santa Template

Color in the Santa template using your favorite paints, crayons or pens. Why not give him a jolly red nose, just like Rudolph? You could even use some glitter to give an extra shimmer to the trim of his hat!

Cut Out the Template Elements

Once you’ve finished coloring Santa in and everything is dry, carefully cut out the elements from the template.

Then cut one strip lengthwise from a sheet of red A4 card – it needs to be the same thickness as the rectangle eyes on the template.

Finally, cut two more thin strips of card, each three or four inches long.

Let’s Secure the Eyes

Turn Santa over. Now stick one of the thinner card strips vertically over the left eye – this will support Santa’s moving eyes. Stick the other strip in the same way over the right eye.
