Yarn Tree Craft Activity

Here is an Easy Christmas Tree for the kids to make. Plus it doesn't require many supplies. You only need some yarn (your choice of color{s}) and a scissors to get started. Add in paper or card stock and some glue and you're all set to craft!




Directions

  • Cut several different sizes of yarn.  The longest piece of yarn has to be shorter than the width of the paper or card stock.
  • Put the yarn pieces in order from smallest to largest.
  • Place and glue the yarn on the paper or card stock (horizontally) with the shortest piece on top and longest piece on the bottom.
  • Cut one or more small pieces of yard for the stem. Turn it vertically and glue it at the base of the tree!

If you're looking for a curriculum tie in, here are a few.
  • Math - Review vocabulary: smallest, largest, horizontal, vertical
  • Science - Parts of a tree: stem, branches, leaves, trunk, roots
  • Language Arts - Read some cool fiction or non-fiction books about trees.
