3-D Christmas Trees

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way…  Oh how I love Christmas!  My house is decorated, presents are wrapped (well, some of them) and Christmas music is playing.  I just love this time of year and the celebration of Jesus’ birth!

My Preschoolers made these adorable 3-D trees using the “cheap” version of paper plates.  You know the kind where you have to use 2 or 3 in order to keep your food from flopping off your plate?  Anyways, have your kids paint TWO PLATES each green.

After they dry… most likely over night, cut one of plates in half like shown below.

Cut the second in half first.  Then with one half cut it in half again making fourths and with the other half just trim off about 1/4 of that and throw it away.  See picture below for clarification.

Get your hot glue gun all warmed up.  (This is a grown up job!) Glue the 2 halves together.

Glue the portion just smaller than a half on next.

Lastly glue the fourths onto the tree.

Once this is completed ask your kiddos to decorate with whatever you have lying around.  I’ve used sequins, pom poms, foam stickers etc.  Enjoy your cute Christmas trees!  They add such fun and festivity to the classroom!

Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
