- You can use the colored construction paper to trace out the kid's handprints. Or to make things fun you can use fabric colors to dip your kid's hand in it and to trace on a white chart paper.
- After taking at least ten such trace-outs of his hand, place them in a circle. Let your kid glue the hand trace-outs in a circular fashion. The fingers should be facing out so as to look like a wreath. Let it dry.
- Once dry let your child loose to decorate it with stickers and other ornaments that you have. You can even fit in a photo of your kid in a Santa clause wear in the middle.
