fingerprint Christmas tree craft for kids

I know, I know.. ANOTHER Christmas tree craft in may! Like I have said before though, if I don’t get the ideas down whilst there fresh I’ll have forgotten them by December! How adorable is this little fingerprint Christmas tree craft though? I came up with the idea for them whilst making our embellished Christmas tree and fingerprint apple tree. It’s sort of a mix of the two. I’m so in love with them, personally I think Christmas isn’t Christmas without all the kids crafty bits and Bob’s. They’re so simple and easy to make too so are fab for toddler groups and preschools!

What we used.

  • Green and yellow card
  • Black marker
  • Coloured paint
  • Cardboard tube (if you use tp roll you will need to make smaller trees. we used the tube from inside of a silver foil roll and then cut it down to length)
  • Scissors
  • Glue

How to make our cute fingerprint Christmas tree craft

Take your piece of card and fold it in half. Draw a curve starting in the bottom right corner going up to just past the halfway line of your fold. Your curve should look like a quarter of a circle.

Cut out your shape and fold it in half at the point trim of any excess so that your curve is even all the way around.

Open your shape up and you should see four equal sections. Now for the fun part, cover three sections of your tree in little ones brightly coloured fingerprints. Put your tree aside to dry.

Whilst your tree is drying, take your tube and cover it in brown paint to make your trunk. Then put your trunk aside to dry too.

Once your tree is dry, optionally take your marker pens and add some swirly lines to join up your fingerprint fairy lights.

Now take your glue and cover your undecorated section with it. Pull your glued triangle round and stick in place on the back of your other end triangle to make a pyramid shaped cone.

Cut out a star and add it to the top of your tree. Then, finish off by balancing your tree on top of your trunk! Aren’t they just the sweetest? A perfect keepsake to look back at year after year!
