Have fun celebrating Christmas in an imaginative and experimental way with these festive themed selfie templates.

Create a self portrait from one of the following:

Santa - Reindeer - Elf - Snowman - Angel - Tree - Bauble


  • 7 character templates
  • 3 templates for creative writing activities. Students can develop stories around their selfie characters and also answer text style questions
  • All character templates are also formatted as foldable greetings cards to make and take home to family and friends.
  • 7 finished examples for inspiration, describing the materials used

Materials to consider:

  • Marker pens, Pencils, Watercolor Paints, Oil Pastels
  • Scissors, Glue, Glitter
  • Felt, Sequins, Ribbons, Gift Wrap, Buttons
  • Washi Tape, Doilies, Colored Paper, Tissue Paper, Cotton Wool


  • Print the required templates onto heavy weight paper
  • Use the examples for inspiration. Invite your students to choose a character that appeals to them and let them create a selfie.
  • They can then answer the ‘text style’ questions or use the blank template to write imaginatively about their selfie character.
  • Cut out and display the finished tablets. You may wish to glue them onto stiff card so they can displayed on a shelf or peg them as a garland. You can make them 2-sided if you want to by glueing 2 artworks together.

I hope you have fun!
