Ah, December. Winter. Christmas. Clocks starting to resemble fans.

Anyone else feel like the world just starts flying by this time of year? I am not a fan of the rush of the holiday season and try to be mindful of slowing down and enjoying all the beauty and fun winter and Christmas time hold. I took my family on an evening trip to see a huge light display because that’s what matters – fun, family time and memories made.

So here I am with another simple toddler or preschooler seasonal craft, a fun craft stick Christmas Tree! I have also collected some fun activities from my fellow bloggers as well. Enjoy!

Craft Stick Christmas Tree Craft for Toddlers and Preschoolers

Craft Stick Christmas Tree


  • Craft sticks in various colors
  • Pom poms in various colors
  • Scizzors
  • Glue
  • Newspaper or packing paper for a mess-free workspace


Since we have a ton of packing paper I’ve been using it for activities. I used it on our coffee table to catch all the fun and mess and glue. Less clean up later!

Start with one vertical craft stick. Pick a color any color. Then, pick a few craft sticks, vary the colors or do green, totally up to you (and your child).

This next step is for the adult – cut the craft sticks, one shorter than the last. This is how we’ll make the Chrismas Tree design. Glue the cut up craft sticks horizontally to the vertical stick.

This step is tons of fun for the toddler or preschooler who runs your house. Let the little one glue the pom pom ornaments to the tree. My tot had a blast!

Then, he went all glue-happy gluing the remaining craft sticks to each other and onto the big paper.

  1. I have a four year old who will be all over this one! Funny how I can never think of these simple crafts on my own, but I’m glad other people think of them and put them on the internet for me to use ?
