We have been itching to do more Christmas tree crafts ever since we started with the Christmas wreath craft this year. { Check out our Hearts Christmas Tree Craft from last year} The kids and I finally found time during the day to sit down and create and make a fun Christmas craft for kids. We used our basic art and craft supplies and party hats.

Before I set out the supplies, I made a very basic scented paint for the Christmas craft. I added a few squirts of green washable kids paint and added pure peppermint extract until I was satisfied with the smell. The kids have been enjoying the smell of peppermint ( candy canes wink wink!) Scented peppermint paint was all the needed to really get into the activity.

Yeah, we are the geniuses who paint over already green party hats! Why? because it is fun to make boring green hats into  a yummy, festive, sparkly, scented Christmas hats. The kids took big whiffs of the peppermint scented paint and gladly painted over the hats.

Then was the most important step in the whole Christmas craft activity – add, no sorry! dump the glitter. ( Please skip this step if you are uncomfortable with glitter- remember the children may want to wear them on Christmas morning and walk around, run around, dance around.. you be the judge!)

Then the children were let loose with the craft stash. They decorated the hats to their hearts’ content using sequins, gems, buttons, pom poms and what not. It was a a wonderful fine motor exercise.

To finish off the activity, we cut out stars from a gold foil paper and stuck to the top of the tree.
