Christmas tree

Christmas Tree Shapes Craft

This Christmas tree paper craft provides a good opportunity to practice shapes.
Christmas Tree Shapes Craft

 Possible activities:
  • Point out the different shapes used (circle, rectangle, diamond, triangle, star). 
  • Count the sides of the different shapes. 
  • Sort the 4 triangles from largest to smallest.

The craft is made with a printer, a piece of paper, some crayons, scissors, and glue.  I always prefer to use a heavy paper (like construction paper), but it isn't necessary.
  • Print out the template of choice.
  • Colour (where appropriate) and cut out the template pieces.
  • Glue the triangles together to form a tree from largest (base) to smallest (top).
  • Glue the rectangle trunk onto the bottom.
  • "Decorate" as a Christmas Tree with star, diamonds and circles.
  • Close the template window after printing to return to this screen.
  • Set page margins to zero if you have trouble fitting the template on one page (FILE, PAGE SETUP or FILE, PRINTER SETUP in most browsers).  

Templates   (color)   or   (B&W)


  • Copy template onto Fun Foam or Felt for a more permanent tree.  Poke a hole in the top to make a christmas tree ornament.
  • Cut out wallet sized picture of child and paste in center of tree.  If you used paper to make the tree, you can put clear contact paper/mactac over top and bottom to make it sturdier.  If you used fun foam or felt you don't need to.  Poke a hole in the top to make a Christmas Tree Ornament that is a great gift for Grandparents!  (You can use marker to mark the year on the trunk).
  • Colour in the tree decorations (star, diamonds and circles) with glitter glue or sparkles.
