It’s December and we are counting down to Christmas!! I wanted to make some art and craft with my kids for this wonderful holiday when I chanced upon this!

Pin from A Wee Nest blog

A Wee Nest had started a project called 12 DIY Pins of Christmas and she made this so beautifully that I couldn’t resist in making a similar one with my kids!

I modified a little as we had a craft session during our staycation in our favorite hotel, and I forgot about the tree “trunk”. Hence we had to make do without it!

First, have these supplies ready: a piece of coloured paper folded into half, ribbons, tape or glue, colour pens or crayons, a straw or ice cream stick (for the stem which I did not use here)

Next part shall require an adult’s help to trace a Christmas tree with a ribbon while your kid holds and sticks the tape along the centre line of the tree. You can use glue for a better effect. I have chosen tape because I feel it’s easier for the kids to stick the ribbon.

Hold on to the ribbon and tape the centre line

There you go! A simple Christmas tree card!

Then it’s up to your kids to decorate the card in any way they want!

When it comes to simple art and crafts, I love to leave as much hands-on work to the kids as possible. So, I’ll try to find simple craft work for them! If you do have simple ones like this, feel free to share with me!!
