Make Christmas tree paper plates

We love making Christmas trees using paper plates to put on the table or hang from the ceiling, these economical trees will delight little hands.

For starters we have our cone shaped trees, with a little help they are perfect for toddlers and preschoolers! Let the children paint, make the cone and decorate the trees in an age-appropriate way.
*For young children, this can be torn tissue paper and large pompoms that can be easily dipped in glue and glued to the tree, while older children can handle smaller decorations (small pompoms, gems, yarn…).

This will be the most beautiful decoration a child has made! You can make the decorations yourself or print out our template.
