Christmas Craft easy kids craft for toddlers and preschool

Christmas Craft that is quick and easy for little ones

Christmas is so exciting for the little ones isn’t it. My two year old loves anything and everything Christmas at the moment so we have been making lots of lovely Christmas trees in our craft time.   The trick is to relax about the mess and let them create, even if it means glitter in every inch of your house.   These are all nice and easy ways to make a beautiful tree. Some need more prepping than others but they all look very pretty and help so much with those fine motor skills.

Christmas Tree Craft Ideas for Young Kids

 

Christmas Tree Craft Using Drinking Straws christmas tree toddler craft

You'll need

  • Scissors and PVA glue
  • About a dozen drinking straws. we used green for our tree.
  • Paper, ribbons and things to decorate with
  • Card or paper to glue your tree to

How to

This is lots of fun we made a tree using drinking straws. I cut them in lengths each one slightly smaller.  There was lots to choose from and i gave Miss2 the free range to choose which ones to use. 

We PVA glued them to the card board and then i gave her a few things to select from to decorate as she wished. 

i made a paper pinwheel and just glued the sides down to be her star at the top.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Christmas Tree Craft Using Coloured Pasta Easy kids christmas craft

You'll need

  • Coloured Pasta. you could also use plain pasta
  • PVA glue
  • Little bits to decorate with. We used glitter, sequins, wool and ribbon
  • Card or paper to construct and glue on to

How to

Glue your pasta on to the card using PVA glue into a tree shape. I let my toddler do hers i just sort of guided so its not a perfect tree but i think it looks pretty good.

Now you just simply decorate. 

tip.  The pasta is quite heavy when its all glued on so using card is probably better than paper.
