We needed some Christmas cheer in this house so I looked at different Christmas crafts we could do and found these fun and easy crafts.
Christmas Tree Handprints:
- Green paint
- paper that you can tape together to make a big sheet (depending on your handprint size and how many levels you want to go)
- accessories like stickers of ornaments and gifts
- markers/color pencils to make details and ornaments
- Glitter for the Star and ornaments
- You glue together sheets of paper (depending on the size of your munchkins tree you want to make)
- You color your munchkins hand green!
- Then pick a starting spot and start making your tree layers with handprints (put them as close to each other as you want the green to go depending on your look)
- You can now make the tree your own! Make a string of lights, ornaments, presents at the bottom, even a background like stockings. Ask your child to draw his family beside it or make it fun with Santa! Let your childs creativity run wild!
We hanged up munchkins Handprint tree on the door next to our Christmas Tree so its in a festive place. It makes me smile when I walk by it. You could even get a frame from Goodwill and make it into a keepsake!
We then made a simple and cute string of lights with fingerprints
- small amounts of different colors of paint
- A pen or a marker
- On your Piece of paper make a string with a pen or marker where you are going to attach the lights to. You can give it twists and turns or even tangles to make it fun and original
- Then take your munchkins fingers and start making some lights in various patterns or just one color
- With a pen or marker attach the lights to the string with details or just leave it as is along the string.
- You can display them as is or get a frame from Goodwill and keep it as a keepsake. I saw one person even used it as gift wrapping paper to add a more personal touch to the gift.
I got the idea for the Christmas tree handprints on pinterest here and the string of lights I saw here.
Hope you have fun spreading the Holiday cheer! Happy Holidays!
