How to make 2-dimensional Christmas Tree with handprints
This is a great simple craft activity for children of all ages. It is advised to only allow one child at a time to do this activity in order to maintain a clear Christmas tree shape.
Organise all of your materials.
What you will need:
- Large sheet of paper
- Green Paint
- Yellow Paint
- Other coloured paint for the pot
Lay your piece of paper somewhere flat on the ground with lots of space to move around it.
Paint a pot shape in the middle of the bottom of the paper.
Have your Brisbane Kids dip their hands in green paint and build up a large triangle shape of handprints (you may even like to draw a pencil outline as a guide first).
With clean hands, press two overlapping handprints in yellow (or other) coloured paint at the peak of the tree shape to form a star and allow to dry.
TIP: Once dry, your Brisbane Kids may like to add additional coloured handprints or stamps to decorate the tree. Stick your tree on the wall for a gorgeous 2D version of a Christmas tree that little hands won’t be in danger of destroying.
