I think that Christmas cards that the children have made are a lovely thing to give, but often they can be messy, difficult, time consuming and complicated to make. Not these.
Firstly you need:
Sequins or stars
You start by cutting a tree shaped template in a piece of card. The easiest way to do this is fold it in half. You can make it as simple or fancy as you like. I am simple lady myself.
Stick the template on to your card. I also stick the card down to the table for minimad.
You can either use a sponge or just finger paint in the stencil (sponges are so much easier with small ones)
Watch out it can get messy - Mine wear the art smocks I made from MadDads old work shirts
Allow the cards to dry - MiniMad got a bit bored by this point and MaxiMad finished them off.
Decorate your trees
We used sequins, small stars and glitter
Glitter is always a favorite here

The finished articles, we tend to do them all shapes and sizes and do a few each week on the lead up to Christmas.
The deal is, if I have inspired you you do something similar with your chilren, then please add it to the McLinky Below.
