I remember doing this craft at school when I was little, my parents still bring it out each Christmas, so I thought it would be nice to create some 3D Trees with the Mini Mes too!
It's very simple to do and ideal for building hand eye coordination and fine motor skills for toddlers and pre-schoolers in particular. It's still a nice decorative piece for older kids (and grown ups) too.
Glitter Pom Poms
Firstly, you need to draw a Christmas tree onto a sheet of green card, making sure both sides are identical so that it will balance and stand up once complete.
Next, put another sheet of card behind it and cut the drawing out so there are two identical trees.
Cut a slit in one tree from the base to the centre and then cut a slit from the top to the centre on the other tree. This is so they slot together.
Decorate your trees with whatever you wish.
We used glue dots to minimise mess and glittery pom poms for a festive look! We got these and some other Christmas craft materials from Yellow Moon.
Once you slot the two pieces together they should stand alone.
You can add a star on top too for a finishing touch.
