Ready to deck the halls with a few cute holiday kids crafts? Toddlers and preschoolers will love these 3 simple preschooler Christmas crafts that use triangles.
Not only are these crafts fun for kids to make, but they also provide a perfect opportunity to talk about triangles.
Triangle Santa Preschool Christmas Craft
To make Santa, you will first need to cut a large triangle from red paper. This is the perfect chance for young kids to practice scissor skills. You can draw the triangle for them to cut out. You will also need a pink circle for his head. (You can either cut eyes and nose from paper or draw them later.) Finally, cut black boots, belt, and a buckle.
Start off by gluing his head and boots into place.
Then comes the fun part! Have your child pull apart cotton balls and stick the white, fluffy pieces on to form the fur trim of his hat, his beard and the fur trim on his boots. (Eventually my daughter decided to trim the whole bottom of his coat.) Stick on his paper belt and buckle, add eyes and nose, and Santa is ready to decorate a door.

Triangle Christmas Tree Suncatcher
For the tree you will need 2 identical triangles of green paper. Holding both triangles together, use a hole punch to place holes all over the tree.
Set one triangle aside for now.
For your next step you will need lots of little pieces of colored tissue paper. (Little ones love being told to rip up tissue paper!) Glue tissue paper over each hole of the tree.
Once each hole is covered, match the 2 triangles back up and glue them together.
We finished ours with 2 star stickers stuck together on top. Perfect Christmas suncatcher!
Triangle Reindeer Preschooler Craft
Start with a brown triangle for your reindeer’s head.
You will need antlers cut from dark brown paper (or perhaps another color), a pair of ears, and a nose — we chose a red circle to make Rudolph. Glue each item in place and add eyes. Rudy is ready for take off!
