We have tons of popsicle sticks available in our house and use these for crafting all the time. I am always adding to my long list of fabulous popsicle stick crafts to keep kids and adults busy and entertained. 

Naturally I wanted to use my spare popsicle sticks to make a Santa Claus. He makes an awesome bookmark; I actually have a Paper Santa Bookmark craft too if you want to make lots of these!

My easy Christmas craft procedure is below. It only requires a few materials and can be completed in a short period of time. Preschool kids can do this with Mom’s help!

Whenever you complete this you can make lots of my other Santa crafts too.

Ask your kids what they are going to do with their adorable Santa stick craft. Will they maybe make lots and give them to some friends?! They could even make a Mrs Claus to keep Santa company. 

Can you think of any other popsicle stick crafts you might want to do for Christmas? How about an elf, reindeer or even the Grinch?!
