Here’s a really simple activity that has stunning results!
It was one of our first advent calendar activities. It is really fun and can be as directed or as open ended as you like. I chose a more directed approach today but it is a very easy, fun and cute craft no matter what approach you take!
You will need…
Christmas tree shapes and the template
I started with the one colour, green, as I know with Strawberry we would have ended up with a multiple coloured Christmas tree. Normally I wouldn’t mind but I really wanted the coloured baubles to stand out against the green of the tree. The template would serve as a guide for the area in which to finger paint, you’ll notice Strawberry took a different approach and went for the full hand print!
Once they were dry we used our finger dipping tubs (avoiding more hand prints, see, clever Mama!) to print baubles all over our trees. You could also use dot markers, stamps, stickers, glitter pens, sequins, jewels, stars, etc.
