Hand Print Christmas Tree

This idea came from celebrating many Christmas while working in child care.  I have adapted the idea so it can be made in a smaller home version.

What you need:


A large piece of paper

Green paint

A paint brush



Sticky tape

Paint the child’s hand with green paint and make hand prints on the paper.

Once you have a collection of these cut them out and make you tree by placing the hands in a row making each row 2 hand shorter than the last so the hands make a triangle shape and the fingers of the hands look like the leaves on a tree.

Cut out a star shape paint it with glue and then sprinkle the star with glitter. Once dry stick it on to the top of your tree.

Hang your tree on your front door or on the fridge or we hang ours on the kids bed room doors.  You can include everyone that lives in your house hold or include all your family, friends and visitors that will call past during the festive season.

To add to this idea you can colour in or decorate some paper decorations to decorate the tree.  You can find lots of templates for these on the internet.
