Christmas Paperwork IdeasChristmas paperwork ideas can inspire small quick items that are suitable for sale in Christmas bazaars, may act as small gifts etc, some of them are easy to make and aid the development of drawing and cutting skills, others are more complex and depend on maths skills. Also,  they can make great classroom decorations.

Here are a few ideas to inspire the children beyond the simple gift tags and bookmarks.

RedTed Art once again has loads! Some lovely ideas:

The Spruce Craft site offers nine easy origami ideas. The first seven of these would be manageable by school children; the last two look too difficult, but I can imagine the water bomb decoration being a huge success!

  • Origami Santa
  • Christmas Tree Card
  • Lucky Stars
  • Origami Apple
  • Origami Water Bomb
  • Hex Star
  • Christmas Cracker
  • Origami Christmas Tree
  • Sakura Star

For older children, there may be some ideas in the Artful Maths collection of folded paper ideas. The first set on the page, Stars and Wreaths looks quite difficult but the second set Ballls and Baubles looks manageable. They are:

    1. 1. Simple Christmas Tree (with a Lucky Star on top):
    1. 2. Fluted diamond
    1. 3. Stellated Octahedron
    1. 4. Gyroscope
    1. 5. Christmas Cracker Gift Box

Good Housekeeping offers a really interesting 3D paper star! 

Christmas paperwork and origami ideas combine art, D&T, and maths and are fun! They also add to the festive decoration in the classroom until taken home.
