Introduce your students to Mexico's Christmas traditions and decorations with a printable poinsettia craft template.
DIY Poinsettia Decorations for the Classroom
Are you tired of the same old Christmas crafts? The veteran teachers on the Teach Starter team all agree that sometimes the best activities are the ones that are unique, different, and, best of all, educational.
Introduce your students to Christmas traditions and customs around the world with our Christmas Around the World printable activities. This Christmas craft can be used to teach students about different countries and their traditions, as well as how each country celebrates Christmas. The download includes a simple yet beautiful craft template for a poinsettia, which is a common feature of Christmas decor in Mexico.
Show Your Students Christmas Traditions Around the World
The activity pairs well with our Christmas Around the World Printable books, so you can use them at home or in the classroom to educate your children about other cultures’ celebrations of this holiday season.
To use, students will first color and cut out the printed poinsettia flower pieces. These are then layered and glued to form the bloom. The leaves are then glued behind the petals. Finished poinsettias make perfect Christmas decorations for the classroom!
