Christmas Cup Craft – Rudolph & an Angel

I love this time of year when we can start to do fun craft around Christmas. I don’t enjoy the mess though. But embrace it I do because it’s Christmas and it’s fun and we’re making memories.

A fun craft that my three year old enjoyed putting together are these Christmas cup crafts. We made a Rudolph and an angel out of two white cups. This craft is so easy and very little materials are needed, so the mess is kept to a minimum.

5. Add hair and eyes to the front of the cup. I used a foam hair sticker from a craft pack from Kmart. You can draw hair on your angel instead.
