Let’s Make a Christmas Card!
Paint the Star
Step 1: To begin, paint or colour in the star with a marker pen or crayon.
Add Green Fingerprints
Step 2: Dip a thumb into some green paint. Remove the excess paint by creating a print or two onto some scrap paper.
Begin filling the Christmas tree with fingerprints.
Fingerprinting is an effective way to create a Christmas tree. Each print will be unique in shade and quality, adding depth to the completed tree – it’s also a beautiful way to personalise a Christmas card!
Complete the Star with a Photo
Step 3: Once the star has fully dried, add a photograph to the centre.
Alternatively, children may also draw a doodle self portrait or a drawing of anything significant to the person they’re gifting the card to.
Decorate the Christmas Tree
Step 4: Using decorative materials such as buttons or sequins, decorate the Christmas tree.
In our example, we’ve added yellow buttons and sequins to the star.
We’ve used buttons to create baubles and sequins to form tinsel.
Complete with a Christmas Message
Step 5: Fold the Christmas card in half and add a Christmas message inside.
