Star Santa

Long ago I saw my first star shaped Santa and have loved them every since!!! This Santa was one that I got last year. I think I bought him at a school Christmas Bazaar.

This Santa was a gift at a work Christmas party. It's painted on a starfish. I'm sorry for the blurry picture. This poor Santa has a broken arm but I'm not ready to give it up!

This is another old project. It's actually a pin. I painted it on a wooden star. His mouth is a little wonky but you get the idea. It is only about 2 inches big. This is just a close up picture.


Because I love star Santa's so much, I always do this project with my class. It happens to be one we did yesterday. We've been learning about the letter S this week and what better project???

I have a paper punch that does the boots and mittens, the kids do the rest.

Thanks for looking.

take care,
Dawn

Oh Dawn I like your Santas so much, and it's so neat that you can pass this love along to your kids at school too. Enjoy all your Santas this season.

I love your Rudolph cookies too. I wish I'd known about these when my kids were small. I guess it will have to wait 'til I have grandchildren!

Dawn, these are adorable! Thank you for sharing them. I'm partial to the star fish Santa. I guess I would be, being a Floridian. :-)

XO,

Those are adorable. I love the snow falling on your blog, that is too much; at first I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me!

Dawn! I think they are so cheery...! Just like you!

Neabear said...

I see you have the falling snow on your blog too. Isn't that fun? I added it to both of mine. That takes the place of not getting snow here. Heehee. Thanks for visiting me today!

WooHoo, Dawn! You won!!! I can't believe it. The fates were smiling on your. How appropriate - a boy and a king.

I love star Santas, too. And, yours are wonderful. We have one made out of tin.

You are such a fun teacher. May I go to kindergarten again?

Dawn these are great. I've never seen star Santas before. I really like the first one.
Please come over when you get a chance, I've got something else for you :0).
Oh! Wanted to ask you if it was okay for me to copy the picture of the snowman ball project for my youngest son's K teacher? Let me know.

What a neat collection, Dawn! (And I wouldn't give up on poor Mr. Starfish Clause yet either.)
