Today is National Ugly Sweater Day! Since the holidays are looking a bit different for everyone this year, we thought we would share our festivities from last year's ugly sweater day at CTP. We will also highlight some fun activities you can do from home, or by virtual learning with your kiddos. Just because things are different doesn't mean we can't still celebrate, even the smaller holidays like National Ugly Sweater day!
We did a little arts & crafts to celebrate ugly sweater day, and made tiny little ugly sweater ornaments! Here is everything you need to recreate this activity at home.
Get your supplies ready!
For the main part of the sweaters, we used felt. This is a great foundation to build your ugly sweaters because you can glue on them easily. Then you need all of your accessories, like beads, string, ribbon, pipe cleaners, stickers, sequins, etc. Anything you want to decorate your sweater with!
You can take 2 felt sweaters and glue a hook in between both pieces so that it can hang as an ornament. We made tiny looking "hangers" for our sweaters. There is so much room for creativity with this craft!
Here is a look at our finished products!
And of course it's always fun to have some yummy treats nearby when you are having a craft party!
We also had some fun with a photo op backdrop that had built in ugly Christmas sweaters! If you are virtual learning, you could try and have the kids put up a festive, Christmas background during craft time. Or decorate your home with fun little decorations, there are ways to still have fun even despite the changes.
And of course you can always celebrate an ugly sweater day by wearing your sweaters at home, or on virtual learning, anywhere! Don't let this season pass without celebrating National Ugly Sweater Day!
These were our ugly sweater winners from last year!
If you celebrate ugly sweater day, or if you try our sweater craft, post a photo and tag @creativeteachingpress on Instagram or Facebook...we would love to see everything!
