Preschool Craft- Puzzle Christmas Wreath

Christmas is just around the corner and I will use every moment crafting with the kiddos. Decorating the tree can be cheap and fun with everyday household items and a quick trip to dollar tree.

For this project you just need some glue, puzzle pieces, green paint and sparkly pipe cleaners (or something to make a bow).

My son is four years old and absolutely loved glueing the puzzle pieces in a ring. He was able to do it himself, with a little guidance. We let the puzzle ring dry over night and painted the wreath the next afternoon. Top it off with a sparkly bow and it is ready for the Christmas tree!

We used some cheap paint that is meant for kids. We found the best coverage painting on the cardboard side. You can spray paint the back of it (where the puzzle image is) if you want, but we kept it for character.

I absolutely love crafts like this, especially for Christmas because these are the types of ornaments that create memories for years. I will write the year on it in sharpie as well. Such a quick craft that was perfect for my preschooler.
