Here is a fun and incredibly simple craft you can do with your kids. And if you’re anything like us, and don’t mind a tree full of random decorations lovingly made by your little ones, then this craft is for you 🙂

This is definitely a Christmas craft that even the smallest of hands can create. And you can make a bunch in a single sitting, which is really fun.

4. Glue on some beads and sequins as faux baubles and decorations to your tree. And then fold and glue a ribbon or length of string on to the back. For little hands, could tie the ribbon off, and have your child glue the knot to the back.
