Busy Hands: Making Christmas Trees (and Free Printable)

We recently had a play date (with Abigail and her Little Miss of Cuddles & Crumbs!) and I wanted to do an activity where we could just let the kids have fun. It being the festive season, I couldn't think of anything other than Christmas trees!

I simply put together an Invitation to Create Christmas Trees.

Invitation to Create Christmas Trees (Free printable included)


Our tray had the following things in it:


Invitation to Create Christmas Trees- A Christmas tree print out (see below for free printable template)

- Pom poms

- Glitter glue

- Snowflake glitter

- Flower glitter

- Foam shape stickers

- Washi tape

- Cotton wool

- Glue

- Ribbon

- Buttons


You can put in just about anything that can be stuck on the Christmas tree.

First, we cut around the print out and stuck it on cardboard. We let the kids create their trees with the cardboard on, so they would have more space to work with rather than the cut out of the tree.

This was Little Dude's first time with glitter and he really loved exploring it!

With a little help from us, the kids made these lovely Christmas trees, each unique and special.

Once the glue was dry, we cut out the tree and stuck the ribbon with cellotape behind it to make a cute art hanging. This will look lovely on your door! Or, you can use it to make a pretty and personal Christmas card.
