Ever so simple, and ever so pretty: here’s how to make a Christmas angel craft for kids.
Fill your winter with colour!
I’ll guide you through four weeks of beautiful and fun art projects that you can enjoy with your children. At home or at school, these process art projects will give you an interesting framework of activities that you can weave into your weeks, so your children are engaged, creating and enjoying themselves all through art.

A Christmas angel is such a classic kids’ Christmas craft. This version is very easy to make, using recycled materials and simple craft supplies. And with a family or class of children, everyone can join in and add their very own twist to create the angel of their dreams!
After reading the nativity story or thinking about Christmas wishes, invite all the children to close their eyes and imagine what an angel looks like. What colour robes would an angel wear? What do their wings look like? Once they’ve pictured their angel in their mind, see if they can make it!
You can use a paper roll for the angel’s body, and paint it any colour you like.
Then cut out an oval from some card and draw your angel’s face with marker pens.
What shape wings does an angel have? What colour would they be? Cut some out from card, fabric or foam sheets.
You might like to add some embellishments to your wings: paint, pen or collage materials. You could write a Christmas wish, prayer or blessing on the back of the wings.
Then use some glue or double-sided sticky tape to fix the face and wings in place, and your angel is ready for play, storytelling or to sit on top of your Christmas tree.
I love how each angel can be so different ~ matching each child’s imagination.
To add to your host, how about a paper plate Christmas angel too?
