Christmas activities are so fun to do with kids. There are so many things that you can do outside of your home. There are family and friend parties, visits to Santa, Christmas shopping, going to see lights around your neighborhood or a display somewhere, if you are by snow then there are lots of activities such as sledding, building a snowman, and skiing that you can add to your list.
However, sometimes entertaining the kids INSIDE can be hard. I wanted to do a craft with my two year old daughter and I knew I wanted it to be a Christmas tree craft. I had seen Christmas tree crafts made with strips of paper and I had all sort of ideas to make it great when I thought why not make it a learning activity too.
My daughter is learning her shapes and so I thought it would be great to match the shapes with each other and when you are done you have a tree! She loved it. She LOVES matching and I love that she is learning. So it is a win-win.
This craft is so simple, but you will feel good after you do it with your kiddos because you will do something with them that won't make you go crazy. Just print out the printables (and maybe cut out the shapes depending on your child's age) and let the kids do the rest.
Supplies you will need:

Steps to make this craft:
- Print out the printables above

3. Let your child match the colored shapes to the shapes on the grey tree.
