For day 1 my daughter created this threaded ribbon Christmas tree using few supplies we had at home:
- colored cardstock
- thin ribbon (it has to be in contrast color to cardstock paper!)
- and I have punched her holes in advance using thick needle.
This Christmas craft is not intended for toddlers, it’s for kids age 5+. As you can see from the picture on the left, I added tape on the top of the ribbon to assist my daughter with threading. I have also shown her with few stitches at the beginning how to thread to get continuing line. This card is messy on the back but we plan to stick photo over it of her doing this activity. BTW, we listened Happy while she was doing this. Her choice! Once threading is over, make a knot on the top and little bow. Then use 2 beads from your stash to add to the ends of the ribbon. Card got a bit crunched from pressing but hey! It doesn’t have to be total perfection! We love how it turned out!
Here are few suggestions for other Christmas cards from around the web for kids of different age:
- with toddlers, you can create these easy Bauble cards from Red Ted Art (age 2+)
- with preschoolers, you can give them to make these Simple Christmas Tree with Washy Tape cards from Raising Wild Ones (age 4+)
