I have been getting a lot of questions about the holidays around the world crafts we’re doing in our classroom. So I wanted to share our very simple and very fun craft projects for each country that we visit during our holidays around the world tour!
Mexico-Poinsettias! I bring in a real poinsettia and we use triangles to make our own poinsettia. The template for this project is in my Holly Jolly Christmas creation.
France-Yule Log. Students draw some lines on a brown piece of paper. They attach the candles to one side of the paper and then roll the paper into a cylinder. Glue. Add glitter.
Germany-Christmas Trees. Cut strips of paper into various sizes. I made my strips 2″ bigger each time. Start with 1″ and add 2″ for each additional strip. Students must put the strips in order from smallest to biggest to make their tree! Add glitter!
England-Holly and Ivy-paint feet or hands green. Add red berries. Add glitter as desired.
Hanukkah-paper plate menorahs. Studnets paint the plates blue. Then we fold the plates and cut in half. One half is the top of the menorah. Cut the 2nd half into quarters and make a base. Add candles. Glitter as desired.
Italy-Old Befana broom. Dowel rod cut to desired size. Brown paper bags paper cut into strips. Wrapped around the broom and tied with a ribbon.
Sweden-Starboy and StarGirl hats. Starboy-fold 12×18 construction paper into a cone. Cut off any excess. Glue on stars. Stargirls-sentence strip and holly leaves printed on paper. Cut out the leaves. Glue onto the sentence strips. Add candles. Glitter if desired.
Australia-paper plate wreaths. Cut out the center of the plate. Students tear paper and cover the plate. Add a red bow and plenty of glitter!
I hope you enjoy these 10 holidays around the world crafts with your kids!
