Decorate a Christmas Tree Craft
This free printable Christmas tree craft is fun because kids can be creative and design and decorate their tree any way they like! This craft offers a festive and educational activity for the whole family to enjoy.
What are the Benefits for Kids
Enhances Fine Motor Skills
Cutting, coloring, and gluing all contribute to the development of fine motor skills in young kids.
This craft provides an opportunity for kids to express their creativity and make unique Christmas trees.
Completing a craft independently boosts a child’s confidence and gives them a sense of accomplishment.
How to Prepare the Christmas Tree Craft
This is a print-and-go activity, so it requires very little preparation. Grab your download, print it, and lay out the materials. Then, watch the kids’ creativity flow!
Get all the materials ready and lay them out. Most of the materials suggested are things you may already have in your craft supplies!
Print the Christmas Tree Template
You can print the tree template on green or white paper. Printing on white paper allows kids to color in the tree and add designs and patterns.
Design and Color
If you print the tree template on colored paper, kids don’t necessarily need to color it in. Some little artists may want to color it in anyway! They can draw Christmas tree lights, ornaments, fun patterns, and whatever else they come up with.
Decorate and Embellish
It is time to cut out the Christmas tree. I suggest cutting it out before adding embellishments because it may be tricky for young kids to cut out the tree with pom poms, or buttons in the way.
After cutting, kids can decorate their Christmas tree with buttons, sticker gems, sequins, pom poms, and much more.
Put it on Display
When the craft is all done, it is time to put it on display! Place it on the window or hang it on the wall. If these sweaters are done at school, they would look great on a bulletin board.
