Easy Christmas Craft for Preschoolers
We have been having so much fun creating Christmas crafts over the last few weeks. SO far we created beautiful ornaments, a recycled paper Christmas tree, played games and had lots of Christmas fun together. However, I have to say that this simple Paper Strip Christmas Tree craft might be one of my favorites. The kids had a blast creating it, and I love how it turned out! Their favorite part was adding the jeweled ornaments.
Paper Strip Christmas Tree Materials:
- Brown paper for the base (although green would work great as well)
- Masking tape
- Green paper – cut into 4″ x 1/2″ strips
- White Glue
- Shallow container – for the glue
Start by forming the brown paper into a cone. This will serve as a base for all the “tree branches”. We secured ours with masking tape.
Be prepared for lots of drippy glue:) Keeps adding branches until the tree is finished. They look cute as Charlie Brown trees too.
Set your drippy Christmas tree aside to dry.
Once the tree is dry add the beautiful jeweled ornaments.
This tree was so simple and cute to create, and only used 1 sheet of green paper, 1 sheet of brown paper, glue and a few jewels. A every inexpensive craft that would be easy to replicate with a number of children. You could also add pompoms, buttons, glitter, foam stickers, colored paper pieces, etc instead of the jewels to make it even more inexpensive.
