Cardboard Christmas tree

A Christmas tree set up in the home gives a very warm and cozy feel and the spirit of that festival is immediately felt. Alas, our apartment is too small for a real tree but we can manage a small one all right. So I got Faith to work on one using cardboard.

While she was at the church camp, I got my materials out and all I needed to do was to cut the cardboard and green felt cloth in the shape of a Christmas tree.

This set of materials could be packed in the busy bag for the kid to work on.

This is really a simple craft. All Faith needed to do was to get the double-sided tape to paste the balls onto the tree and the star on top of it. Since she knew how to handle the scissors and the tape, I left it to her to complete the task.

This requires a certain level of concentration though.

I tried very hard not to interfere with how she decorated the tree.

This is her completed tree, all done in 15 minutes. Notice the two red balls at the bottom of the tree? I really did control myself by not readjusting them.
