Wishing You Joy Photo Craft Template

Young children can create a simple wreath craft or card featuring their photos for their families with the Wishing You Joy Photo Craft Template. I know how busy the early childhood classroom can be, whether it’s in a public setting or a family home. Download the free printable template at the bottom of the page.

Educators are busy teaching basic concepts and meeting curriculum standards, but there’s still a need and a desire to celebrate holidays with little learners. I believe we can explore amazing topics with children from the rainforest to dinosaurs and that children deserve more than seasonal and holiday lessons. So, I provide resources to help teachers quickly and creatively fill the need for simple holiday crafts and mementos children can make for families.

🎀Wishing You Joy Photo Craft Template

Be creative! It’s not just a coloring page. Here are some alternative ways to use the wreath template:

Coloring the Page: Let your kids color the wreath template.

Add a Photo: What parent doesn’t love a photo of their child? Use a close-up photo of the child’s face to personalize the holiday wreath craft. Print a 3″ photo and cut in a circle shape to glue it in the center of the wreath. Print an extra copy to use as a template to cut the photo.

Collage with Tissue Paper Squares: Get creative with colorful tissue paper squares, to make vibrant and textured art.

Fingerpaint the Page: Go for simple process art and let your little ones fingerpaint the wreath coloring page. It’s a sensory delight that’s both fun and sensory-based. To avoid a muddy-colored mess, I’d suggest having the children paint with one color. Then, add colorful touches with fingerprint or pom poms.

Paint with Watercolors: Explore the world of watercolors and watch as the wreath template comes to life. I especially like liquid watercolors.

Make a Card: Turn it into a card by printing 2 on a page. Fold a piece of construction paper in half and glue the wreath photo page to the front. You can also make a full-page card, by gluing it to a piece of colored cardstock or construction paper.

Help your kids write heartfelt messages inside and decorate the exterior with stickers, glitter, or drawings. These handmade cards make thoughtful gifts for grandparents or friends, adding a personal touch to any occasion.
