Step 1: Using the kid-friendly paint, divide the paper plate in two to create an area for Santa’s face and his famous red hat.

Step 2: While the paper plate is drying, cut a piece of A4 white paper into fine strips (approx 1cm width)

F0r young children, it might be easier to have wider and fewer strips of paper.

Step 3: Curl the paper by wrapping it around the pencil and then drag the pencil out in a downward motion to create a ringlet.

Alternatively, simply slide the pencil out of the paper without dragging. This will create a bouncy curl.
