Shape Ornaments Christmas Garland Preschool Craft

Shape Ornaments Christmas Garland Preschool Craft

My daughter and I love making crafts together. To incorporate a Christmas craft into a recent homeschool preschool review on shapes, she and I made a simple Christmas garland from paper ornaments decorated with smaller shapes.

Materials

  • Color paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Yarn

Directions

  1. Cut some colored paper into the shape of glass Christmas ornaments.
  2. Cut more colored paper into smaller circles, squares, rectangles, triangles, ovals, diamonds-rhombuses, stars, hearts, moons-crescents, and octagons.
  3. Glue the shapes onto the ornaments.
  4. Glue two decorated ornaments back-to-back with a long piece of yarn between the two ornaments. Continue gluing the decorated ornaments to the yarn to create a Christmas garland.
  5. Display the shape ornaments Christmas garland.
