DIY Paper Christmas Wreath

“Creativity is messy, it is an art of growing up, learning, and imagination!”

I firmly believe that creativity is inside every kid, all we need to do is to allow explore their creative surroundings. And what better than involving kids in varied arts and crafts? To me, it is one of the most important ways to help them grow and develop critical skills.

Why are crafts important for child development?

As a parent, you might see the mess being created, but that is the creativity of a child. It is the time when their brain is growing, their skills, be it language, math, creative, personality, is developing. Art and crafts are first-hand learning experiences and one of the several factors that play a major role in their development. And every kid loves art and craft, isn’t it?

1. Cognitive skills and decision making:

Today, millennial kids need to have strong critical thinking and decision making skills. And what better than allowing them to do their art and crafts their way? Let them decide the colors, materials, and the kind of craft they wish to do. By this, kids take up the challenge of thinking, imagining, and even deciding how to make the best of their choices.

Don’t expect a finished product, but look at the efforts and the imagination of a child. Look at the creative process involved, and the satisfaction on their face. This is the way they develop their self-esteem. I’ve seen my boy learning about the cause and effect of his choices, he has learned to be patient and think before taking a decision, be it as small as deciding the next color to paint.

2. Motor Skills:

Simple tasks like using glue, scissors, or holding colors, paint brushes help kids improve their grasp. The strokes, movements involved in art and crafts, help them regulate and coordinate their fine motor movements.

3. Vocabulary and Literacy:

Well, I remember my boy learned about the caterpillar and the lifecycle of a butterfly while doing a paper caterpillar craft when he was around 2.5years.

Discussing and learning around it, with the craft we made, was so much fun. It was a kind of practical learning to which he was exposed.

Well, that was just a small example, but art and crafts improve their language skills, and vocabulary.

4. Important tool of expression:

Art and crafts act as a creative outlet for kids to express their emotions and feelings. This not just acts as a stress buster activity for kids (yes, kids do get stressed, read more here) but gives them the right opportunity to express.

Now, with the festive season around the corner, here is an easy DIY craft to do with kids, a Christmas Wreath, made out of Paper. This would be a lovely addition to the Christmas decor.

How to make a Paper Christmas Wreath?

A) Things you need:

  • A4 colored sheet (red/green)
  • Asian paints TruGrip CR-8 adhesive:

TruGrip CR-8, a general-purpose innovative white glue from the house of Asian Paints has been our favorite. The packaging and the glue bottle are so vibrant and colorful that this is the first thing my son runs to bring as soon as we start any craft:).

This craft glue is perfect for craft papers, cardboard, popsicles, and other craft items.

  • Scrap paper of contrast color for the bow, berries
  • Scissors /paper cutter and scale

Step by step directions to make a Paper Christmas Wreath:

1. Cut 2 pieces of a white sheet (30cm x1.5cm ) and stick to both sides of your main A4 sheet as shown with the help of TruGrip CR-8.

2. Now draw a line on the A4 sheet (along the white sheet edge) and dot mark it equally half inches apart throughout the line on both the white ends.

3. Connect those dot marks in the form of straight equidistant lines. Now cut along each line with the help of a paper cutter/scissors carefully (only till the dotted portions. Be careful not going beyond the white strip that has been pasted.

4. Now fold it and stick both the white strips together, so that a tube form is achieved.

5. Join both the ends of the tube to create a wreath shape.

6. Now make a paper bow and stick it on the top.

7. Decorate it with beads, pearls, stars for the final look.

Hola! Your simple paper wreath is ready to add up to your Christmas home decor! A simple and fun craft that kids will certainly enjoy. Hang this paper wreath on a window or on a door.

Happy Crafting memories!
