The holiday season is a time to spread joy and cultivate creativity. For young students, crafting can be an excellent way to develop their artistic skills, express themselves, and have fun. Moreover, incorporating recyclable items can teach young learners about sustainability and environmentalism. Below we will look at some examples of holiday crafts that can be done in the classroom with young to older students. These eco-friendly crafts are not only fun and festive but also promote sustainability and creative thinking.
Transform empty toilet paper rolls into cheerful snowmen with this fun craft idea:
First, collect empty toilet paper rolls and have students paint them white or cover them with white paper. If you will be painting, consider using old newspaper for the drop cloth instead of buying new ones at the store. Provide options for decorating like felt circles for hats, buttons for eyes, and small twigs or toothpicks for arms. This could be turned into a great scavenger hunt for kids by telling them to only find things that have already been used at home. Encourage students to get creative and personalize their snowmen with unique details.
