Christmas paper tree

 
This was one of the first Christmas crafts that we did this year. I originally saw a similar project done on Meg Duerksen's blog last year. Claire has a small attention span, so we made ours on a smaller scale. For our base, we used a white piece of 6x6 cardstock. I cut a bunch of green paper into strips for Claire. She put them in the order that she wanted to use them, and then, starting at the bottom, she cut each piece smaller than the last one. Then she glued them all onto the cardstock (using a glue stick.) When she was done, she drew a tree trunk on the tree and glued a star at the top. The first of many Christmas projects!
