It’s that time of year again! When the big guy in red makes his debut what better way to say welcome than his very own personal plate of goodies?
Capture the magic of Christmas and start a new tradition with this fabulous personalised treat plate for Father Christmas and his noble steed — Rudolph (though, we’re pretty sure Prancer, Dancer, Dasher, Vixen, Cupid, Blitzen, Comet, Donner would want their own one too!)
This easy-to-do craft is a great way to get slightly older kids involved and even more excited about Christmas than they already are. There’s a special spot on the plate for a carrot, mince pie and glass of milk — or if your ‘Santa’ prefers beer, then make sure you make that change!
All you need is a white plate you don’t mind losing to the arts and a collection of felt pens — you can choose any colour you like, we used red and green, but gold would also be great.

How to make a personalised Santa plate
- First print and cut out the stencils, or draw them freehand if you’d like.
- Put the stencils on the plate and draw around each one with a coloured marker pen. Remove the stencils, then go around each shape again with a dashed black line.
- Write a greeting at the top and bottom of the plate, then add red and green dots around the sides.
