Kids Made Cards – Oh Christmas Tree!

Now Halloween is over I can now start to concentrate on Christmas. Each year we try to do as much as we can hand made. We try and get the boys as involved as possible too!

We are taking part in a Mum the Madhouse’s series called “Kids Made Cards” Check here to see each days activity. Yesterday the lovely Louise made these amazing T’was the night before christmas footprints! Check them out here.

Today we are making Christmas Tree Cards

You can choose different materials such as pipe cleaners, and use finger paints for baubles too! Older children can cut the tree out to help aide their fine motor skills and scissor control. There are lots of different ways you can amend to suit age and abilities.

 

Thank you!
