What Should I Print The Tree Template On?
You can print this tree template onto paper or cardstock but which one you choose will depend on how you want to use it.
Paper is fine to use for most crafts and especially if you are decorating this template with markers or colouring pencils.
If you are using large amounts of paint (for example with toddlers or preschoolers who often splash paint around more) or liquid glue such as PVA or school glue then you might want to choose printing it onto cardstock as the thicker material can stop your artwork getting too wet and potentially tearing.
You could also print this template onto paper or cardstock and then laminate it so that you can use it as a playdough mat.
Tree Template Craft Ideas
There are so many fun ways to use this template and it’s one that I keep using again for different crafts throughout the year as we come up with more ideas, I love when you can get more than one use out of something.
This bare tree template is perfect for seasonal crafts and activities, you could even print four copies and use it to make some easy four seasons crafts. If you’d like four trees on one piece of paper though then check out our four seasons tree below.
No matter what materials you have at home, there’s loads of ways to decorate this tree from paints and paper to leaves and flowers or yarn and pom poms.
