Let Kids Get Artsy with The Twelve Days of Christmas Paper Chains in Black-and-White.
Create the Twelve Days of Christmas Paper Chains in Black-and-White to help decorate the classroom or Christmas tree as well as teach students about Christmastide.
These cute paper chains are an alternative to plain construction paper as they feature the delightful characters of the Twelve Days of Christmas. Students should be encouraged to color and decorate the links. This printable is only one small part of our thematic collection for the Twelve Days of Christmas.
There are four pieces or links per page, and each page creates four links and measures about 12-inches in length.
How to Use the Twelve Days of Christmas Paper Chains in Black-and-White
First, print out the sheets and have students color in and decorate them. Next, cut the pieces apart, forming four similar strips. The end pieces may be slightly wider. Trim if desired. Then, bring the ends of the strips together to form a circle and staple to close. Repeat this process, attaching one new link to the existing chain. Create as long a chain as desired. Be sure to connect the pieces facing the same direction so that the characters do not appear upside down. Finally, display your Twelve Days of Christmas Paper Chains in Black-and-White around the edge of a bulletin board, the border of a door, or hang it like a garland from the wall. You can even use it to decorate your classroom Christmas tree.
