This precious Poinsettia Craft was hand-drawn by one of our 1st-grade teacher’s moms decades ago! And it has been a favorite Christmas craft idea for first graders ever since! It’s so simple to make, preschoolers can make the poinsettia craft, but 3rd graders love it just as much! It’s great as a Christmas bulletin board idea, but it will also be one of your school’s most talked about classroom door Christmas ideas!
Here’s how to make this beautiful poinsettia craft:
Color each leaf and petal with crayons before cutting and gluing to give it that soft look of the plant.
Glue the colored pieces together to create the Poinsettia flower.
Finish up by having students punch out yellow dots with a hole puncher and glue them together to the center of the flower.
Watch your Christmas Craft for first grades come to life!
Already have a bulletin board ready for the holidays? Make this poinsettia craft one of the most talked about classroom door Christmas ideas around your school! Easily decorate around your doorway with each personalized poinsettia and listen to all the oohs and ahhs as students and teachers pass by.
It takes all of 30 minutes to make this poinsettia craft and turns out beautifully. Create the best holiday bulletin board this year with another favorite Christmas craft, our homemade Santa Advent Calendars! These two Christmas craft ideas for first graders really complement each other and are both hand-drawn and unique.
