Supplies Needed for Christmas Tree Fine Motor Craft
- Small Recycled Green Bottles
- Foam Ornament Stickers (from Michael’s, unfortunately not sold online)
- Foam Star Stickers
Set Up & Prep
- Save and rinse green bottles. We used two different ginger ale bottles, these looked the most like Christmas trees to me!
- Once you have collected enough green bottles, then you can set out the bottles and stickers to invite the children to get creative!
My son loved this craft! Probably for these reasons:
- There is no right or wrong way to decorate a Christmas tree.
- It is easy enough for him to do on his own, frustration free.
- It is mess free, besides the sticker backs.
- When he’s done, he’s done. Or he can come back to do more later.
Plus, who doesn’t love getting in the holiday spirit?! Aren’t these Christmas Trees adorable?!
HAPPY FINE MOTOR FRIDAY!
