The best way to calm children down when they have raided the Cadbury Roses tin and are running around high on sugar is a simple arts and crafts task. This one is for the whole family and can be added to, each year or you can make a brand new one.

A Christmas Tree made out of your family’s hand prints. What you will need:

  1. Free hands
  2. Green, Red (for the base) and Yellow (because no tree is complete without a star) Paper
  3. Scissors
  4. Glue
  5. Patience

Why not spend an afternoon completing this simple but effective craft idea? To make it a bit fancier, you can trace the hand prints onto felt or even material. Each year as your kids grow (sorry to break it to you but they do get older) you can add the bigger hand prints to the tree.

Happy Crafting!
