When I first saw this paper Christmas tree craft from Krokotak, I thought it would be a great project for little ones learning to cut straight lines.
The tree is made by cutting strips, but not cutting all the way across, a piece of paper, then the strips are folded to make the loops. Instead of eyeballing where the lines go, you could physically draw lines for little kids so they would know where to cut and when to stop.
You can see the full DIY by clicking over (and there are lots of other great Christmas tree crafts over there you won’t want to miss, so go check it out).
Of course an adult could also do the cutting for younger kids and leave them with the fine-motor challenge of gluing and sticking the loops to make the tree shape. And for older kids it would just be a fun tree craft they can embellish with pom-poms, construction paper ornaments, stickers, little jingle bells and more.
