Christmas Activities with Peppermint Templates


Paper plate peppermints


This is a fun and easy craft for kids or adults to use for decorations. Print out the template, cut out the peppermint shapes they can be glued directly on to the paper plates. Then kids can add additional decorations such as glitter, pipe cleaners, or pom poms.


Peppermint painting


Cut out every other section of the peppermint using the blank black template. Tape the peppermint outline on to a canvas. For kids projects I use dollar store canvas. Then they can paint around the outline. When done with the outside paint in the peppermint sections with red or green paint.


Peppermint tissue paper craft


Tissue paper is so easy to use for crafting. For this craft all you need is tissue paper, glue, and scissors. Cut the tissue paper into small squares. Kids can add glue to the template. Then place small pieces of tissue paper on top of the glue. This is a great activity for small kids to work on fine motor skills.


Peppermint yard decor


To make some fun peppermint Christmas decorations for the yard you will need the templates, ribbon, glue, scissors, large white paper plates, and cellophane. You can also glue the peppermint template on cardboard. Cut out the template, glue it on to a paper plate that is facing down. you can cover it with mod podge for some shine. Then take a large piece of cellophane place it flat on a table. Put the paper plate facing down in the middle of the cellophane.


Cardboard box gingerbread house


This is a fun craft for kids to make and you can use any boxes you have from delivery. Have kids use their imagination to decorate a cardboard gingerbread house. This can be done with templates, colorful paper, or even paint. The large peppermints and candy cane templates would work great for decorating a gingerbread house!


Peppermint photo craft


Use the peppermint as a photo frame and put a kids picture in the middle. This is a cute gift for family members from kids. You can wrap it in cellophane like the craft project or put it in a round frame.


Candy cane stencil


The candy cane outlines and peppermints also work well for a simple stencil and tracing.


I hope you have lots of fun with these templates for the holiday season. Feel free to use them for a variety of purposes and print out the template multiple times. They are great for kids crafts and decorations. I love easy and free decoration ideas! Candy canes paper and real are also great for a Christmas party theme.
