Make a Magazine Christmas Tree
Here's an activity that will get you and your child into the holiday spirit. With a little bit of help and imagination, your child can magically transform a simple magazine into a miniature Christmas tree that will bring holiday cheer to any room in the house. Kids will experience a sense of accomplishment and you will feel good about recycling and reusing materials gathered from around the house. And when the holidays are over, gently tuck your magazine Christmas tree into a box and save for next year, and many years to come.
This activity helps build your child’s fine motor skills, focus, creativity, and attention to detail.
What You Need:
- Old newspaper
- Thick magazine like Reader's Digest
- Green spray paint
- Small decorations for the tree such as buttons, felt cut-outs, gems, stickers, mini Christmas tree ornaments, or small shells
- Craft glue
