The key is to keep your Christmas classroom decorations neutral and non- religious.
Some Christmas classroom decorations that can be done either alone or with your students are things such as snowflakes to hang from the ceiling or put up along the walls of the classroom. These make nice Christmas classroom decorations because they will be easy and fast, and your class can even be taught a lesson: that no two snowflakes are alike, show them by holding their snowflakes up to one another. Making snowflakes is not costly and they do not take much time to make as far as Christmas classroom decorations go, especially if you get the students involved. If you get the students involved with such Christmas classroom decorations you can make a fun mess with glitter! The cleanup is relatively easy—just get a vacuum cleaner.
Winter scenes are great Christmas classroom decorations that are also inexpensive and can display your students artwork around the room. Use black or sky blue construction paper and colored paints or crayons—especially white, so they can make snow against the colored paper. Have the students decorate a Christmas scene however they want to—they can even use cotton and glue to make the snow. With these Christmas classroom decorations you do not need to worry about being politically correct. If a Christian student wants to do a nativity scene—that is his or her art and not an implication of what is being taught in the class. Make sure there is some white construction paper available too, in case some of the children prefer to do an indoor Christmas scene on a white background.
You will need a few items to make these Christmas classroom decorations.
1) Styrofoam balls in three shapes: large, medium and small.
3) Puff paints or paint pens
4) Fake snow
5) Orange and black construction paper
6) Black buttons
You can set up a Christmas classroom decorations in a specific area of your classroom where you can lay down the fake snow and have the children place their snowmen together there. To make the snowmen all you will need to do is have the children stick the Styrofoam balls together with the toothpicks and then decorate them like snowmen. If they want to they can make cones out of the orange construction paper to glue carrot noses on their snowmen—(for this you will probably need a glue gun). They can also glue the buttons on as eyes. Or they can just decorate their snowmen with the puff paints and paint pens. It is fairly simple to give the snowmen top-hats made out of the black construction paper, too.
All of these will make great Christmas classroom decorations!
