Using hand prints are a fun, and easy way to get your little actively involved in creating a satisfying decoration. This activity is easy to do with only a few or with lots of children and can be done with any age group. The result is a fun and effective Christmas tree which looks great as part of your festive decorations.
In this post I discuss the following topics:
Other ideas: Decorate your tree with glitter, glitter glue, or paper ornaments.You can also make the tree on a triangle shape (so there is no background showing).
Or why not try using your toddlers sweet little hand prints to make a special Christmas wreath.
Make enough hand prints to make a circular shape of the size you'd like. Glue the hand prints in a circle, overlapping the heel of the hand and the fingers. You can make the hand prints all the same colour or vary them. When you've made your circle, tie a pretty festive bow at the bottom.
