Glue – A glue stick is a clean and easy way to assemble your Santa.

How to Build Your Santa Printable
Start by printing out your free printable template. Make sure to adjust the size as needed.
This free printable craft is formatted to print one full large size Santa on 8 1/2 x 11-inch paper.
Carefully use your scissor skills to cut out the Santa pieces along the lines of this fun worksheet. Younger kids may need assistance with this step. Each Build a Santa printable sheet includes a Santa’s hat, face, Santa’s beard, body, arms, and legs.
Use a glue stick to attach all the pieces together. Santa’s hat, beard, face, body, arms, and legs will come together easily with a little glue magic. 😉
Additional Ideas to Do With Your Build a Santa
Get even more creative with your Santa doing fun paper crafts after you’ve put it together.
These are 3 of my favorite ways to use the Build a Santa printable after Santa has been assembled:
1. Turn Santa Into a Christmas Card
You can take your assembled Santa and glue it to the front of a Christmas card for a fun paper craft! It’s a clever way to make your own greeting cards.
Find some colorful card stock or construction paper in Christmas colors. Fold the paper in half to create Christmas card. On the front side of the paper glue your Santa. Inside write a special holiday message.
2. Create a Build a Santa Ornament
Simply use a hole punch to create a hole in the top of Santa’s hat. You will then take a few inches of string, yarn, or ribbon and feed it through the hole. Tie the 2 ends of the string together, and voila! You have your own Santa ornament.
3. Use Your Santa As a Gift Tag
You can use your assembled Santa as a gift tag. Simply attach it to a present and write note on the front of Santa’s beard!
