Three Christmas Tree Activities for Kids
Remember when I said that Christmas crafting stressed me out last year and I was planning to do very little of it this year? It turns out that it was the planned crafts that stressed me out. Having something on a calendar that we were "supposed to do." I let go of that this year. I pinned a few Christmas ideas, but I didn't actually plan to do any. Ironically, when I left the room open for random inspiration we ended up doing more crafting than any other year.
I use the word "Christmas Craft" lightly because most of what we have done is too open ended to really be considered a craft, but our house has been filled with Christmas activities lately. From Christmas Tree Ornaments to Jingle Bell Crafts, the inspiration to create has been popping up everywhere.
A lot of our crafts seem Christmas Tree themed so I thought I'd group them together and see where that inspiration took you!
I shared this one originally on Instagram when it popped into my head one afternoon. This is an invitation to create Christmas Trees with Magna-tiles and Loose Gems. I simply separated out the green trianges from our Magna-Tiles set and placed them on the Light Table with some gems.
This little tree I bought on a complete whim in a little store in Wisconsin and it has been one of our favorite things every year. The ornaments are simple yarn ornaments and pom poms with ornament hooks that my kids can decorate and re-decorate their tree with as often as they like. It sits in their playroom during the month of December and usually gets played with daily.
This one was inspired by the amazing Meri Cherry. She has this gorgeous, bright Christmas tree mural on her site right now and when I saw it I was immediately inspired. I had the idea of Christmas tree painting floating around in my mind and something about her project in a tub gave me the push I needed. I laid this out for my kids and they were huge fans. Our Art Wall is now covered with trees.
