Preschool Ornament Craft

Christmas Tree Ornament

preschool ornament craft

This preschool ornament craft is made using craft sticks, and any child can put together by themselves.

When working with preschool kids, it is best to keep the crafts really simple and quick to make. Children this young can have shorter attention spans, so this craft is perfect. You may find some children decorate their ornament really quickly, and others may take a lot more time with the decorating step.

Since craft sticks, glue, and sequins can be bought in multi-packs these ornaments are very inexpensive and very simple to put together. The children will have a lot of fun decorating them!




Materials Needed for this Christmas craft idea:

  • 3 craft sticks
  • green paint and paintbrush
  • glue
  • sequins or other decorations
  • cord or ribbon for hanging

Preschool Ornament Craft Instructions:

1. Begin this craft by having the child paint three craft sticks green. Allow them to dry well before gluing.

2. Add a drop of glue to the ends of the craft sticks as shown, then assemble the triangle Christmas tree shape. Allow to dry well. Hint: For very small children that have trouble squeezing a glue bottle, have white glue in small disposable condiment cups at the craft station, with a cotton swap for them to apply the glue.

3. Next have the child dot glue all around the tree. Then apply sequins. Or have them apply little Christmas stickers, or decorate with glitter. Allow to dry.
