A fun craft to make at Christmas time, it can be hung as an ornament, given as a gift or used to decorate a card.
Time: 20 minutes (this can be preparation or actual activity time)
Age: 5-10's, Over 10's
3 popsicle sticks
1 small piece of cardboard (could be cut from a cereal packet)
Green and brown paint
Make a triangle with the popsicle sticks. Put a dab of craft glue on each corner to stick together.
Cut the cardboard to size and put down the bottom for the trunk of your tree.
Leave 10 minutes for glue to set. Once set, paint the triangle green and the base brown and set aside for the paint to dry.
While paint is drying, cut a strip of foil and tear into small pieces (about 2cm x 1cm) and roll these into balls. Cut out a star shape from the foil as well for the top of your tree.
Do the same with crepe paper, or you could even use pompoms. Once the paint on the tree is dry, you can decorate using the decorations you made for it, applying glue to the back of them and then pressing gently to stick them to the tree.
Once you're done you can hang as a Christmas ornament or use to attach to the front of a 3D Christmas card.
