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)

Various red collage materials - try scraps of paper, feathers, recycled packaging, pieces of Christmas wrapping paper etc.

Cut long pieces of paper from the roll. Use masking tape to secure the long pieces of paper to the floor.

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.
