Stripy Christmas Trees

0

My lil’ ones loves cutting and pasting, so we turned her favourite art activity into a Christmas tree!

You will need:

  • A4 coloured paper/card (for background)
  • Decorative paper to cut strips (wrapping paper, scrapbooking paper)
  • Yellow and brown paper/card
  • Scissors
  • Glue

How to:

1Prepare by cutting all the strips (approximately 1cm wide). Make sure you have different lengths so that the tree can start wide at the bottom and thin as it gets to the top. Also use the yellow and brown paper to cut out a star and tree trunk.
