Christmas Tree Decorating Activity for Kids
Looking to add a little sparkle to your Christmas Tree? My kiddos look forward to this simple Christmas Tree Decorating activity each year. Nothing says Christmas like a box of vintage jewelry, right? Read on to learn how to decorate a Christmas Tree with a little extra sparkle this year!
My kids love any excuse to pull our my stash of vintage jewelry. They love examining each piece, sorting them and especially trying them on.
The past few years, I have set out the box of jewelry alongside a small fake Christmas tree. (If you are anything like me, you already have a few of these “table top trees” scattered through out the house.) The kids absolutely love decorating the tree with all the sparkly jewelry pieces. It is a simple activity that we add to the kids advent activity calendar each year. Easy to set up, and a sure hit!
All you nee to set up this simple Christmas activity is:
- Vintage Jewelry ~ everything from clip on earrings, broaches and pins to necklaces.
- Small Christmas Tree ~ We usually use one without lights.
How to Decorate a Christmas Tree with Jewelry
We found that most of the jewelry pieces slip right onto the branches so no need to add string or a hook. Earrings, broaches and pins are the easiest to hang since they have a little loop at the back already. Necklaces work just like regular Christmas garland. Simply wrap and drape it around the tree.
