So after snow we wanted to do some decorations and get Christmas ready.If you have not checked the snow recipe yet I highly recommend you check that Christmas Activity : DIY Play snow
Usually every year we decorate a small tree as a part of our Christmas decorations but this year I wanted it to be little more as I have a little helper.And wanted to keep it easy enough for N so that he would enjoy it.
I kept the craft very basic and easy because more than beautiful and finished decorations it should be easy for a two year old.And very importantly I wanted it to be a best out of waste project.So that instead of buying a fake plastic tree we can use the waste and be eco friendly.
So lets get started
some decorative sequence or stars
Colours (acrylic/water any colour would do)
Empty toilet/ kitchen towel roll
Double sided tape
Ginger Bread Man
Take an empty carton and cut it in the shape of ginger bread man.
Apply glue all over or
And decorate it with applying glue on the sequence, stars or any decorative item you come across the stationery store.
Rudolf The reindeer
Put your hands on the card board and draw your hands, cut it with the help of knife.Your hands are the horns of reindeer.
Paint both the horns and the toilet roll brown in colour or else you can leave colouring as toilet roll and cardboard both are brown in colour.
Use a double sided tape to stick the horns and
Use a red pom pom stick it with double sided tape.
Your Rudolf The Red Nosed Reindeer is ready
Cut the cardboard in a circle I have used a plate to draw the circle as I don’t have a compass.Waiting for N to grow to bring back my school time memories of compass and Protractor.Gosh ! I have even forgotten the names of my geometry instruments. Anyways,Make a bigger circle and draw a smaller circle inside it. Cut it to get the base of the wreath.
No matter what I do I find it difficult to draw a star , so I simply draw two over lapping triangle to get my star.Did the same here and mad the cut in the centre to give it a more starry appearance.
Colour it with any colour of your choice.
So this one is our first Christmas tree of this season yes we have planned few more and hopefully we would be able to do it.
Cut few shapes like circle, crescent ,triangle as decoration for the tree and a star for the top.
