You’ve already decorated your Christmas tree. But that doesn’t mean the kids can’t make a second. Or third. Or even fifteenth. If you’re looking for a way to keep the kiddo’s busy on the days leading up to the winter holidays, or you need a Christmas craft on the big day, check out this kid-made tree art activity.

Materials

  • Tempera paint- green, brown and any other colors your child wants
  • Glitter
  • Card stock paper
  • Cotton balls
  • Sequins
  • Clear-drying school glue
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors

How-To Steps

  1. Pour the green and brown tempera paint into small pools on a paper plate, sheet of wax paper or piece of reused cardboard.
  2. Dip a cotton ball into the green paint. Your child can paint print a triangle-shaped Christmas tree buy pressing the cotton ball down onto the paper.
  3. Repeat the paint print step with brown tempera to make a tree stump at the bottom (flat part) of the triangle.
  4. Add ornaments by paint printing dots with other colors. Your child can use a cotton ball or their fingers.
  5. Sprinkle a dusting of glitter in the still-wet paint.
  6. Glue thin ribbons onto the tree to make garlands.
  7. Dot glue on the ribbons and add sequins for a festive look!
