Simple Christmas tree decorations for kids (+ templates)

Phew, I finally got round to making some Christmas decoration templates for kids. (I don’t know about you but my to-do list is out of hand at the moment!).

My two boys are still a bit young to do the cutting-out so I did it for them. Their job is to go wild with the glue, glitter, silvery markers etc etc!

If you wanna print some out for your little ones to cut-out or decorate then you’ll find templates after the jump.

Anyway, there are five templates to choose from. One contains a mix of all designs, the rest are just a single sheet of each of the designs (that way you don’t print off more than you need if you only like one of the designs). Simply cut out and decorate. When it comes to hanging thread some string through the loopy-bit with a needle (or use a small hole punch to chop out a hole first).

Happy decorating. We are doing the tree this weekend and I am super-excited!!!

  1. Fantastic! Will definitely be letting my little one loose on these – she has just started to get into ‘sticking’ so no doubt they will all be covered in bits of shredded tissue, feathers and sequins!

  2. Love these – my girls will be glittering them I”m sure.

    Thanks for this, I’ve just printed out the mixed templates as a back-up project in case the after school club I’m working with get the pine bird feeders finished before the end of our session.

      Ooooh good luck with the bird feeders! We love making them!

  5. I think I found your blog when looking for play dough recipes, and was delighted to find yours. I fell in love with the colorful, funky projects and have many of them on my To Do list! Thanks for the inspiration!

  14. I like the snowflake pattern, thanks for sharing the template.

  15. A small amount of people like to try the food at their favorite restuarant but don’t have enough cash for it, I like going to places knowing that i’d be okay covering the bill.
