Don’t miss these Santa Claus crafts for kids of all ages! Santa crafts are so fun for preschool, elementary school, or home!
There is nothing quite like a fun Santa Claus craft to get kids excited about the upcoming holiday. While we don’t really “do” Santa as far as our kids actually believing that he is real, we do celebrate Santa as part of the overall Christmas holiday. This year, Bo is completely enamored by Santa (to the point that she said we had to put up our Christmas tree early so Santa could come), so of course, we’ve done a lot of Santa Claus crafts.
I’ve found some of the very best Santa Claus crafts to share with you today.
