Deck the Halls with Easy Paper Chain Crafts

Preschool Christmas Craft Idea

Deck the halls with this preschool Christmas craft idea. Young kids love to cut and paste, so these unique paper chain crafts guarantee cool holiday decorating that everyone will enjoy.

Start with your basic paper chain craft. You know the one: link after link provides you with a colorful chain that you make as long as you like. Use red and green construction paper or why not try using holiday wrapping paper for a new twist? Cut strips of paper as thick or thin as you like, and then glue (or staple) the ends for your first link. Add link after link for your special holiday garland. Use these chains as tree decorations or just string them wall to wall!

Bottom line is that you and your kids will have loads of holiday fun just making these paper crafts!

Read on for more specific instructions and a special reindeer pattern. We hope your family enjoys at least one preschool Christmas craft idea from our selection of holiday crafts.

Happy Holidays!
