Easy Christmas Craft for Kids – Day Four
This super easy Christmas craft for kids starts with a print and cut banner pattern. As long as your little one can use paper scissors they can make this banner. The Merry Christmas wording is easily recognizable for children helping them to spell it.
This banner is simple enough for the little ones to do, and pretty enough to be inexpensive decor. For now, I hung this banner onto a little frame so I had good lighting for the photos, but its permanent home is hanging from guest room dresser. I even considered hanging it outside over the front door.

How to Make this Easy Christmas Craft for Kids
The buffalo check pattern and the red letters are part of the banner template. Besides the template you will need:
Cardstock, or construction paper and glue
Childproof safety scissors
A hole punch
Any decorations you like. Some ideas are stickers, pine cones, candy canes, dollar store mini sleigh bells, paper snowflakes, or recycled Christmas cards if you have any.
The plain banner is good for any age group from kindergarten to teenager. A young child may need help printing out the banner, but then they can have fun decorating and customizing it any way they like.
As my granddaughters are still young, this one is done with Santa stickers, it can easily be winter sports stickers, forest animals or farmhouse animals.
I got all the stickers in one package at Michael’s with a 55% coupon.
Print out the banner onto cardstock. If you don’t have cardstock you can print the banner out on plain paper and then glue it to construction paper before cutting it out.
After they banner pieces are cut, the template has marks where the holes should be, simply punch them out.
Hang the banner with twine, and decorate it any way you like.
