Eight Excellent Christmas Tree Arts, Crafts & Activities

~It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas~

The tree is going up tonight!! Our normal family tradition is the first of December, but Miss M and I are off to the Christmas concert at school tomorrow night so we are doing it one night early! I am so looking forward to getting into the Christmas spirit this year with our two little ones. To keep the tree safe from Little Man's inquisitive clutches we plan to pop it in the play pen (which wasn't being used for it's intended purpose anyway). This is quite a popular idea for households with toddlers and babies on the move I've heard.

So today I've got some fun and festive Christmas tree themed art, craft and activity ideas for you and your kids to enjoy in the lead up to the special day!

Felt Christmas Tree Decorating



A perfect activity for toddlers (but preschooler's will love it too) is this felt Christmas tree. Stick the tree to a wall using command strips, and the felt decorations stick to the tree. Your little one can decorate and re-decorate the felt tree to their hearts content. Get them from Charlie Robin Designs (but make sure you order before the 12th of December).

Kindly gifted for the purpose of this post.



Fun Fingerprint Tree



Did you see we recently did a giveaway of one of these fingerprint trees? Well if you missed out you can still order them from Sarah Tamblyn Designs. Personalise the tree with your kids teeny tiny fingerprints as the decorations. How special! If you want one be quick ($10 for one, $12 for 2, or 4 for $20 - they make great gifts for the grandparents!). 

3D Paper Plate Crafty Trees



This fantastic idea popped up in my Instagram feed the other day and I thought it was brilliant! Thanks to Arty Crafty Kids for this one. Nice and simple for preschoolers or toddlers.

Wooden Christmas Tree Frames



CleverPatch has some great materials to use for your Christmas art and craft - either at home or school. I've ordered myself some of these wooden Christmas tree frames for the kids to make (well Miss M can make them and I'll just pop in a photo of the little man) :)

Paint Chips



Ah the trusty old paint chip- free from the hardware shop. There are just so many uses for them. Every time Miss M goes there with her Dad I ask her to bring some home in my favourite colour so we had quite a collection of different shades of green. I cut them into triangles and let Miss M go nuts with the decorating!

Christmas Tree with Straws



This is an idea from a guest post I wrote for Childhood 101 - as a Christmas themed busy bag idea... You have to place the straws in the right order along a strip of play dough and then decorate with the remaining play dough and pom poms.

More ideas?



How fantastic does this crafty creation look? It's made with a plastic lid and is a great way to introduce sew skills. Read the instruction here at I Heart Crafty Things.

  11. Before starting your own plate tree, you should first gather all of the necessary supplies for this project. Here are the materials that I used for the trees: Two 3D paper plates that are transparent (I used two different colors), white paint, craft foam, spray paint, wire, glue, wood glue, screws, stake, sand, aluminum foil, and a tablecloth. You may also need some clear plastic or glass paints christmas ornaments or markers. Other items that you may need include: ribbon, wooden sticks, twine, and wire. If you are creating a tree for a craft fair, it would be wise to have a cutting list so that you know what to buy ahead of time.
