Easy Ribbon Christmas Tree Craft

Here is a very easy, quick, inexpensive Christmas Tree Craft Activity that even young kids can enjoy making.


This craft could be used in a frame, simply hung on the refrigerator, or even used as the front of a Christmas Card.




Material
  • ribbon (any colors or designs)
  • glue
  • scissors
  • paper or card stock

Directions
  • Choose a piece of paper or card stock.
  • Cut approximately 6 - 12 small pieces of ribbon all different sizes. The longest piece has to be smaller than the width of your paper.
  • Arrange the pieces of ribbon in order from smallest to largest
  • Glue the pieces of ribbon in the same order, (horizontally) with the smallest on top and largest on the bottom, onto the paper or card stock.
  • Cut a small piece of ribbon for the stem. Turn it vertically and glue it on the bottom.
  • Enjoy your new modern-looking ribbon tree!


       You can sneak tie in a quick math lesson by introducing or reviewing the terms smallest, largest, horizontal, and vertical before, during, or after the craft activity!


      Have Fun!
