DIY Kids Santa Beard

Here's a fun and easy craft that my son made the other night. He ended up adding to it and continued on crafting for another 20 minutes or so. It was a perfect starter project for some self directed playing time! Or more commonly known as mommy-can-get-some-things-done-time!

I started by taking a piece of cardboard and cutting out a "chin" with a place for a mouth.

Then I gave my little guy the cotton balls and glue. I let him decide where and how to put the cotton balls on. Sometimes my obsessive way of doing it comes out as "control freak"! I let him be abstract. If some cardboard shows, some cardboard shows. Whatevs.

Tape a popsicle stick onto the back


 Like I said, my son wanted to keep going. So I cut out some "eyes" and a hat. He taped and taped and taped all three pieces together and colored and glued his little heart out.
