I look forward to decorate our Christmas tree every year because I get to pull out my precious ornaments. We collect ornaments from all places we traveled to. So my husband and I would talk about our memories of each trips as we hang the ornaments on our tree. And they look so beautiful on our tree. This year is different because we have a toddler in the house. Have you ever cringe when your child touches your glistering ornaments? Or when the banging noise when ornaments fall to the floor?. Yeah, I’ve been there too. Toddler’s mind is curious about everything and wants to help Mommy and Daddy to decorate the tree. The Kids Version Christmas Tree activity is a perfect and a fun way for your little one to decorate his OWN tree. The pictures are the best part. So talk to him or her about the pictures as you help your kid decorate the Kids Version Christmas Tree! Keep reading on for the instructions on how to make one.
Things you need
- large green poster (I get mine from Dollar Tree)
- pencil or any writing utensil
- 8-10 of 4X6 pictures
- hot glue
- packing tape
- Draw a tree on the green poster using up all of the space. *Don’t worry if you mess up or if your child draw on it (like mine). The mistakes will be on the back where you can see them.
- Cut out the tree outline
- Cut out the pictures in circle shape. (I used the cup to trace it with a marker and cut it with scissors) *Optional: You can glue the cut-out pictures on the scrapbook paper for color and stability.
- Use packing tape to cover the tree and pictures to avoid tearing
- Hot glue the one side of velcro randomly all over the tree.
- Hot glue the other side of velcro on back of the pictures
- Let cool
- Play and talk with your kids about the pictures and the Christmas tree
Have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Years! Make sure to check out other Kidsivity Christmas activities.
