Christmas Tree Craft

Our grandchildren love to do craft projects when they come to visit, and this year we decided to make a Christmas tree craft out of scrapbook paper. It is the perfect holiday project! It’s easy, it requires minimal supplies, and it doesn’t take hours to create these paper trees.
I had so much fun watching (and helping) the kiddos create these little trees and seeing their personal creativity in selecting the different papers to use in this project.

And while I consider this to be a great memory maker with my grandchildren – it didn’t go without tears shed (I guess that is a memory maker too). One little tree didn’t stand up straight like the rest—oh dear. But even with a few tears, a few tissues, and encouraging words from cousins, we had a lot of fun creating these unique little Christmas trees!
