Simple Christmas Tree craft

Sharing is caring!

Today we are getting in the Christmas mood and have made this Simple Christmas tree craft using cotton buds. You could make this into a card to give out or just to hang up in your house. Either way the kids will enjoy making it!

Simple Christmas Tree craft for kids to make

This is a nice easy activity to make when you are looking for something different than using a paintbrush. It’s great for developing those fine motor skills and colour recognition too!

To make it you’ll need:
Paper
Pen
Cotton buds
Rubber band
Paint

Once you have your supplies here is how you make it:
1. First draw the outline of the Christmas tree on your paper

step1-2step2-2

2. Take some cotton buds (I used about 6) and tie them together using a rubber band. Make a few of these depending on how many colours you want to use

step4-2 step5

3. Now your child can use the cotton buds to ‘stamp’ on the different coloured paints

step3-2 step6

We hope you enjoy!
