Santa Light Christmas Activity

This Christmas, light up the holiday table or a window with this electric Santa light!

What You'll Need:

Paper bag

Pencil

Scissors

Markers

Cotton balls

Glue

Flashlight

Clay

Saucer

Santa hat

Tape

Flatten the bag along its creases and turn it so the opening faces you as you draw the face. Draw the outlines of Santa's eyes, nose, and mouth. Cut them out. Use markers to draw on his eyebrows, eyelashes, lips, and cheeks.

Glue cotton balls on for hair, mustache, and beard. Stand the flashlight (beam facing up) in clay on a saucer. Put the bag over the flashlight, and add a Santa hat to the bag. When the light is turned on, Santa glows.

It's time to put your thinking cap on -- again! The next activity involves some serious measuring and pop quizzes for the entire family. Continue to the next page to learn how to make a wheel of measure.
