December is such a fun time of year!
Around our house, we really load up on Christmas crafts and activities.
We always check out Christmas lights, do crafts like these paper gingerbread houses, do some hidden learning activities like with these Christmas tangram printables and read lots of Christmas stories for kids.
This year, we’re planning on doing even more Christmas crafts!
In fact, yesterday we shared our newest idea, this handprint reindeer craft.
Today we’re making Rudolph’s best friend, good ‘ol Santa Claus.
Read on below to see how simple it is to make this adorable Christmas handprint keepsake.
