Hot Chocolate Construction Paper Craft

Hot Chocolate Construction Paper Craft

I love making crafts with my kiddos. During the winter months, I also love sharing cups of hot cocoa with my kiddos. Last year in celebration of winter, my daughter and I made a hot chocolate craft from construction paper.



  1. Cut one sheet of construction paper into the shape of a mug.
  2. Cut some brown construction paper into strips.
  3. Tear the brown strips into smaller pieces.
  4. Glue the brown paper pieces onto the top of the paper mug.
  5. Glue the cotton balls on top of the brown paper pieces.
  6. Display the hot chocolate construction paper craft.

    What a fun construction paper craft. You could probably laminate those and use them as table placemats for hot chocolate time.:)
