This is a fun Christmas craft to do with a group of children. Create giant Santa outlines by drawing round the children on long rolls of paper - they can then decorate their Santa in any style they choose! Try hanging the Santa collage on a door to make a bright Christmas decoration.

Materials
Long roll of paper (we used a roll of craft paper from IKEA)

Stick on boots and a belt cut out from black paper (or you could collage these items too)
Stick on a red hat cut out from red paper.
Try adding cotton wool pads or balls to make a furry rim on the hat and a fluffy beard.
