Decorating a Christmas Tree - Sticky Fun - Toddler Activity

Thursday, 18 December 2014

I haven't posted about a sensory activity for a while so thought I'd share an easy festive activity that Little Miss A has enjoyed doing.

Have Small People Big Ideas to thank for the original idea.

What I used:

  • Sticky back plastic (haven't used this stuff for a while. The last time was at school when you had to cover all your books in it!)
  • Scissors
  • Green gift wrapping tape 
  • Masking tape
  • Pom-poms, buttons, parcel bows and sequins for decorations 
All you need to do is cut a rectangle of sticky back plastic and tape it sticky side out onto the window. Then using green tape/string/card, create the outline of a Christmas tree. That's it. Time to decorate!

Later on I was about to recycle some Christmas catalogues & magazines away and then struck on the idea of cutting out the pictures of decorations. These made a great addition to the tree even if most of them ended up around the border rather than on the tree itself!

The good thing about using things like buttons, pom-poms and sequins is that you can pick them off and use them again which is exactly what Little Miss A did the first time. If you use pictures cut out from magazines etc. then these stick more firmly in place and can't be removed.

The tree has been left up on the window over the last week or so and Little Miss A keeps going back to it to add bits or remove them!

This is a really easy activity to set-up so definitely one to be repeated in the future.
