Handprint Christmas Tree

ages 1-5


White construction paper, tempera paint, paintbrushes, decorations (sequins, glitter, etc.), and glue.

Activity Detail

Use this activity to create a fun Christmas decoration and also to keep a memento of your child's growth. Begin by getting out a sheet of white construction paper and green paint. Paint the palm of your (hopefully willing) child's hand green and then place on the paper. Continue putting green palm prints on the paper in the shape of a filled-in, upside-down triangle. When you turn the paper around, you will have a beautiful Christmas tree. Put another palm print on the top of the tree -- this time in yellow -- to create the star. Then let your child decorate the tree with paint-drop ornaments, sequins, glitter, and anything else crafty you happen to have on hand.
