Christmas Stockings - Threading Activity

Here's a great way to practice some threading skills & make a seasonal decoration/gift at the same time. These cute Christmas stockings are simple to prepare & can be decorated in a variety of ways.

To make them we used a A4 card, a hole punch, ribbon, along with gloopy glue & sequins. If glue & sequins sound too messy, felt pens & stickers make a great alternative.

To get the stocking shape we used our Christmas Stocking Template which you can download here. For the threading holes we placed both our templates together & then used the hole punch, making sure the two templates were lined up together.

Then Minnie threaded them together using a length of ribbon (great for encouraging fine motor skills & hand-eye co-ordination). We secured the ends of ribbon at the top to create a loop so the stocking could be hung up.

To add a little sparkle she glued on sequins, & once it was dry we filled it with sweets ready to give to friends.

An easy gift to make, or cute decoration for your Christmas tree.
Why not fill them with sweets or small gifts to share with friends.
