We always up our Christmas tree up right after Thanksgiving, so today seemed a fitting time to share this fun family handprint (and foot print, actually, if you have a child small enough) Christmas tree. It’s a craft we have made every year – here’s our first go at it!
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). You can watch me build ours in this video from my live Google+ hangout last week!
You can also cut these out of felt to make a fun Christmas tree scene your child can build over and over – or applique the hands onto fabric for a more polished look.
Are you listening to Christmas music yet? We started playing it on Tuesday or Wednesday!
