Kids and adults can make these cute holiday trees using cut paper and craft sticks.

By: Andrea Mulder-Slater

These paper trees are just what you need when you have a few extra classroom minutes to fill during the holidays.

What You Need:

  • A popsicle stick
  • A small wooden block, a wine cork, or a hunk of play dough
  • Colourful paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Small sticky-back gems
  • Dried grass or raffia

What You Do:

Glue a popsicle stick to a wooden block or wine cork. Or, place the stick in a hunk of play dough.

Make the base of your tree with a small wooden block.

Then, cut five small strips of paper – from larger to smaller. Glue the paper strips to the popsicle stick, add some shiny button stickers and a sticker star and your tree is ready for the mantle.

If you are so inclined, you can also glue a little stash of dried grass or raffia to help camouflage the base of the tree. But that’s entirely up to you.
