With Christmas just a few weeks away, we’ve officially got our Christmas craft on and today I’m showing you this rather cool 3D Paper Plate Christmas Tree.

This simple craft was a HUGE hit with the girls.

They adored every element of glittery sticky process and if you are considering trying this craft out with a toddler or preschooler, then it’s a great activity for fine motor skills!

Excluding a small amount of help assembling the Christmas Tree, this Christmas craft is entirely child-led and would be perfect for group craft sessions at school, preschool or playgroup.
