A Wonderfully Simple Christmas Craft

In between milk poured in a kitchen drawer and alphabet beads waterfalling down the stairs, we managed a Christmas craft today. Crafting amid the chaos calls for simple ideas! You’ll love this!

Materials:

  • a stencil—I used a Christmas tree I traced from a simple printable onto a shirt box and cut out.
  • Crayons or colored pencils (markers or paint, if you’re brave.) (I’m not)
  • Musical sheets—I bought an old hymnal at the library book sale for fifty cents.
  • Ribbon or yarn
  • Tape

Procedure:

1. Tear some pages out of the hymnal.

2. For younger children or those needing help on fine motor skills, I taped the pages to the table and then the stencil on top to the table.Diy Christmas tree art Christmas Craft preschool elementary

3. I laid out only greens and yellow because I really wanted this to be a little matchy. Three still managed to be creative in her coloring choices though.

4. Let them color as many as they want.Easy simple Christmas tree preschool craft diy elementary art

5. I laid out yarn across my dining room table and taped the backs to the yarn across the title of the hymn.

6. Then Ten and I taped them to the wall. I had the idea to make a Christmas tree shape with several swags of these, but we ran out of oomphs.

7. Stand back and be proud.Easy simple Christmas tree preschool craft diy elementary art
