Father Christmas decoration
You will need: Thick paper or card White poster paint Red poster paint Black pen and red pen Ribbon or wool for hanging the decoration up Scissors Hole punch How to make: Ask the girls to paint their hand as follows 1. White paint on the tip of the thumb 2. Red on the ball of the hand with a little white under it. 3. Pink on the palm (mix white with a little red to make pink) 4. White on the fingers. Make sure they put all the paint on their hand before they touch their paper. It would be a good idea to check they have the right amount of paint on their hands before they continue. • • • • • Use a white fingerprint for the ball at the end of Father Christmas’s hat. Allow the paint to dry for ten minutes or so. When the paint is thoroughly dry use the marker pens to draw on the face. Cut out a circle around the Father Christmas. Finally, punch a hole in the top and thread some ribbon or wool through.
