We always up our Christmas tree up right after Thanksgiving, so today seemed a fitting time to share this fun family handprint Christmas tree (and foot print, actually, if you have a child small enough). It’s a craft we make every year. Check out first-ever handprint Christmas tree. The kids were so tiny!
If you see this post before Thanksgiving, have a go at our family handprint turkey craft – always a hit with the kids!
Family Handprint Christmas Tree
Building the tree is super simple:
- Trace everyone’s hands (we just did the kids, this year), plus baby’s foot for the trunk of the tree.
- Add a star on top, and any other decorations you like (dot stickers make great tree ornaments that kids can easily put on).
Family Handprint Christmas Tree Variations
This craft can easily be switched up! These two variations are on my to-do list:
- Cut the handprints out of felt to make a fun Christmas tree scene your child can build over and over.
- Applique the hands onto fabric for a more polished family handprint Christmas tree wall hanging.
When do you start listening to Christmas music? Between loving music and being a Christmas geek, we started playing it on Tuesday or Wednesday!
