Christmas Crafts for Kids - Craft Stick / Popsicle Stick Santa Claus

Have the children been good this year? Santa is waiting for the day of his special appearance! This Santa Claus craft stick makes a nice tree decoration and kids will have fun making him. It has a few more details than the Popsicle Stick Reindeer or the Popsicle Stick Snowman but he is worth the time and effort put into the project!

For this project you will need:

- craft stick (tongue depresser)

1. Base coat the Santa in red and let him dry. Paint the other side red as well.
2. Cut a piece of tubing to a length you desire and roll one end into a small cuff. The other end, you will tie off with a piece of string.
3. Glue the tubing to the top of the Santa.
4. Just under the hat, draw lightly with a pencil a half circle and paint within this line with peach color. Let the paint dry. Glue the bead on for his nose!
