Paper Christmas Tree Craft

This paper Christmas Tree is a very easy and inexpensive craft activity for kids to make. It is made with 4 heart shapes.





Materials
  • construction paper (green, brown, red, yellow, etc.) or white paper and crayons
  • heart shapes (3 different sizes) for tracing
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • glue
  • paper punch (optional)



Directions
  • Trace and cut 3 green heart shapes (small, medium, large).
  • Trace and cut 1 brown heart shape (small).



  • Turn the hearts upside down. Place the small brown heart on the bottom. That will be the tree truck.
  • Place all 3 green hearts above the brown heart. Have the smallest green heart on top. Overlap the hearts.
  • Glue the 4 hearts together.


  • Finally decorate your tree. Have fun!



There are lots of great books for kids to read about Christmas and Christmas trees to go along with this craft activity.
Below is a sampling from Amazon.


Also, here is a link to some adorable, FREE Language Arts Activities (Adjectives and Writing Activities) from Collaboration Cuties to go along with this craft:
