How to make Easy Christmas Tree Crafts
When doing craft in the classroom I try to organise everything into a basket, one per table, and have one person collect the resources needed. this cuts down on the logistical nightmare of organising 30 kids to do a craft activity. I also organised a drying area too. For this Christmas Tree Craft activity I added enough for 1 each, so there was no sharing of equipment. I also decided to keep control of the paint by getting a couple of kids to help put a blob of green paint onto everyones plates.
But if you’re leading small groups of 4 students at a time you won’t need to. Just make sure you have a checklist of the kids names before you start so you can keep a track of who’s made one or not. I always paint a couple of spares for kids who are absent or just incase of mishaps.
Step 1 – Paint the paper cone with green paint.
Step 2 – Allow the cone to dry completely.
Step 3 – Once the paint is dry thread a thick needle (like a darning needle), with string or ribbon.
Step 4 – Use the needle to make a hole in the cone then thread the string through and tie the loose ends of the string together to form a hanging loop.
Step 5 – decorate the cones with adhesive gems and stars, add the students names.
Your DIY Christmas Tree Decoration is ready to hang on the tree!
