This is a easy and fun little craft idea for the kiddos in your life. If you’re like us you’re always trying to find cute ideas for them to make at a party or while they’re home on Christmas break. As you know those low attention spans can drive you crazy, but if you’re prepared with things like this life is much more fun. This Santa Stop Here sign will really get them excited.
To make sure that Santa stops at our homes we had to make these quick signs to hang in the window so he knows for sure where we live. 😉 Wouldn’t it be awful if he got lost?
There’s not much to these and there are lots of options. This is just to give you an idea of what we used.
To start here is the printable I created for our craft. Please use if you’d like. SANTA STOP HERE
You will need:
- Suction cup hooks (buy here)
- Small battery operated candles (buy here)
- Zip lock bags or small page protectors
- Glitter or confetti (buy here)
- Ribbon, stickers, washi tape, etc. (buy here)
- Hole punch (buy here)
- Cardstock or Christmas paper (optional)
- Glue dots or tape to hang the candle (optional)
For this one we used a 5″x7″ page protector. We cut a 5″x7″ piece of off white cardstock and adhered our cut out stop sign. Then we decorated the page protector with washi tape and added some ribbon. These protectors are nice because they already have the holes to hang them up with. We used a heavy glue dot to stick the candle on with and then hung the sign up with the suction cups. (You’ll want to hang it right side towards the window so Santa will see it.)
For this one we used a zip lock bag and added some glitter and washi tape. We inserted the candle inside the bag to hold it in place. Then we punched holes in the top and hung it up.
There are so many options with these and I think your kids will love the idea that there is one extra way for them to get Santa’s attention.
