santa's sleigh ornament craft for kids

santa's sleigh
We made this santa's sleigh ornament last year out of an empty tape dispenser! It was very easy and very fun. I was happy to see that it survived being stored in a box for a year!

At some point during this past year, I picked up this Night Before Christmas Pop Up book--You know how I love these! (Designed by Paul Taylor and Illustrated by Marvin Brehm)

The illustrations are so beautiful to me. And most of the flaps and pull tabs still work despite its age!

We've had several discussions about what a sugar plum is exactly...my dad says it's a dried plum with sugar on it...does anyone know for sure?

There's Santa in his sleigh! Sadly, this page doesn't work very well anymore.

Do you have a favorite Santa craft or book to share?

How awesome that you saw a tape dispenser and made it into a sleigh. I would never have thought of it, but it's totally the perfect shape. Super cute!
