This Little Fir Tree Christmas Craft for Children is delightful – I mean Kids LOVE decorating the Christmas Tree, so why not do it again and again and again!!
We based our craft idea on a wonderful book called The Little Fir Tree by Margaret Wise Brown, author of Goodnight Moon. It is a wonderful story…
“They put golden tinsel on his branches
And golden bells
And green icicles
And silver stars
And red and green and blue and purple chains of shining Christmas balls.”
All alone in an empty field grew a little fir tree. It dreamed of being part of a forest-or part of anything at all. Then one winter day, a man takes the little fir tree away and it finds itself at the center of a little boy’s very special celebration.
This winter we are hosting a wonderful series – 30 Christmas Book + Craft ideas for Children. Pop over and have a look at all the wonderful ideas! I have to admit we read Christmas books all year round, but in November and December it is amplified to immense proportions – therefore wonderful to have an excuse to read every Christmas Story we can get our hands on!
Little Fir Trees are so easy to make – and can be used once complete to stick on the front of Christmas Cards, or as gift tags!
Little Fir Tree Christmas Craft Materials:
- Green Cardstock – Dark green like this one or Lighter Green like this one
- Glue – like this one
- Glitter Glue
- All things shiny – sequins, buttons, confetti
- Willing little fingers to stick stick stick!
One of the reasons I like this craft is that once it is set up your children can be left to the own devices and stick as they wish! There is no pattern or specific way to decorate a tree – so they can relax and enjoy the process of sticking and creating and produce wonderful results!
How to Make a Little Fir Tree?
First cut trees out of the green card stock – you can do this freehand or if you are unsure make a template and trace around it. I cut a few different looking ones – some taller and thinner, some short, some small, some fat!
I set up the table with the trees, glitter glue, normal glue and all things shiny!
And then we stuck and stuck until all our trees were finished!
Personally I LOVE the sequined trees – full full full of sequins!
You can decorate the trees as you wish, that’s the fun!!
Merry Christmas Everyone!
