Scrunched Tissue Paper Christmas Tree Craft

Tissue Paper Christmas Tree Craft

If you are on the look out for fun, easy but effective crafts for young children then you are in the right place. Here at Learning and Exploring Through Play - we always strive to bring you fun activities and crafts! Today we have an adorable scrunched up tissue paper Christmas Tree, no doubt using materials you already have at home.

Before I share this craft with you there are a couple of crafts I want to make sure you have seen:

- Popsicle Christmas Tree Craft
- Christmas Tree Leaves
- Clothes Pin Snowflakes
- Snowman Spools

Now let me share with you our Tissue Paper Christmas Tree Craft:

You will need:
Tissue Paper
Crafty Bits
PVA Glue
Glue Spreader

Tissue Paper Christmas Tree Craft

Begin by cutting out a Christmas Tree shape in your cardboard. To make sure ours were symmetrical I folded a sheet of paper in half, cut it out, opened it up and traced it onto the cardboard before cutting it out. Younger children will find cutting cardboard very tricky so you may want to have them all cut out before the craft begins.

Have lots of tissue paper at the ready. To do one tree we used 3 A4 sheets of tissue paper scrunched up. Again I would recommend having a batch already scrunched up and allowing children the chance to rip and scrunch some of their own if they want to. Add lots and lots of PVA glue to your cardboard.

Start adding the scrunched up paper to the Tree. Be sure to press them all down into the ouzy glue. Looks pretty effective doesn't it?

You can either wait until this has completely dried or like we did you can add your decorations right away.

Remember to add your trunk at the bottom of your Christmas Tree! You can add some twine/ribbon to the top of your tree if you wanted to hang them up on the Christmas Tree.

Lets take a look at the party in action:
