Ugly Christmas Sweater Craft

It is officially December! That means it is time for our first Christmas craft of 2019. To kick things off, we made a super fun ugly Christmas sweater! This activity is great for kids from two to six and can be done at home or in a classroom. This is very much an open ended activity, so I will list the materials that we used, but you can use anything you have laying around the house.

Materials Used

  • Construction Paper
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Tinsel
  • Crinkle Paper
  • Pom-Poms

I started by letting my toddler pick out the color she wanted her sweater to be. Next, I drew and cut out a sweater like shape. It took me two tries to get something that looked anything like a sweater.

After it was cut, I helped my toddler put glue all over the sweater shape. Next, she got to work gluing on the assorted craft supplies.

The end result was a perfect ugly Christmas sweater!
