Cut out all the parts, star shape and the rectangles.
We are going to make small bow-like shapes with the rectangle strips of paper now.
Let’s start with the smallest rectangle shape. There is a dashed line in the middle of the rectangle shape. Apply a small drop of glue there.
Stick both the ends of the rectangular paper strip to the middle and make a bow-like shape. Do the same with all the other paper strips.
Let’s make the card now. Get an A4 cardstock and fold it in half widthwise.
Stick the paper bow shapes on the front of the card starting with the smallest on top. This is an excellent learning activity for kids to arrange things in the order of size.
Use the star shape as a template to cut out a star from glitter paper. If you don’t have glitter paper, you can use normal construction paper. Stick the star on top of the Christmas tree shape.
Cut a small rectangular-shaped piece out of a toilet paper roll and stick it under the tree for the Christmas tree trunk.
Now kids can decorate it with crystal stickers. They can also use pom poms, buttons, fingerprints, etc. if they want.
Finally, write your Christmas message inside the greeting card!
