Christmas Tree Template
Christmas trees are one of those things that automatically signify Christmas to us and they’re also one of the easiest and most fun things to decorate for kids crafts.
I’m sharing quite a few ideas today for Christmas craft ideas you can do with your child but I’m also pretty certain that once you have a look through your craft supplies you’ll come up with loads of ideas too, they’re such a versatile outline to work with!
Of course it’s pretty easy to draw a Christmas tree outline yourself but I often find that mine end up a little wonky or lopsided which is where templates like this are so good.
I like to be able to print something out rather than draw a shape and then rub it out half a dozen times because I’m not happy with how it looks.
The large sizes of these Christmas tree templates means that they’re perfect for kids to decorate as there’s nothing to fiddly or delicate about them.
If you’re doing a craft project with a group as well then this template is perfect for preschool or classroom use as you can print as many copies as you need, great if you need thirty tree outlines in a hurry!
You can print this template on to regular paper or cardstock but I would recommend using cardstock for any craft where your child is likely to use a lot of paint or glue so that it doesn’t get flimsy or tear.
