If you’re looking for a simple craft to distract your preschoolers for a while, then this is the craft for you: an easy peasy Christmas tree puzzle.
Materials (per puzzle):
A4 cardboard (any colour)
A4 cardboard (green)
Fold the green cardboard in half lengthways, then draw the outline of a Christmas tree on the folded piece with the points of the tree on the open edge of the cardboard. Cut along the line and open up to give you a complete Christmas tree shape. Then, use the shape to trace an outline on the plain piece of cardboard. Go over this outline with a koki.
Cut the green cardboard into as many pieces as you like. The younger your kids, the larger (and fewer) shapes, the better.
Get them to fit the shapes into the outline of the tree, then glue the shapes into place.
Let them colour the base of the tree and decorate the tree with crayons and dot stickers.
Then make glue lines over the tree and sprinkle with glitter to make tinsel.
