Grade Level – 1-4
Glue or Glue Gun
String or ribbon
green paint or white paint
small amount of garland any color.
Take pine cones and dip them in green or white paint. After it is dry let students put sequins on it to look like ornament on the tree. After they have dried glue on little bits of Garland and tie the string or ribbon to the top of the pine cone. The bottom of the pine cone can be painted brown to look like a bottom of a Christmas tree. Let dry and spray with Hairspray to keep it together and let it dry.
Talk to students about what kind of decorations people used to make long ago to put on their Christmas trees. Discuss how ornaments were not bought but made for the tree. Talk about any Christmas rituals that children do at their house with their family.
