If you don’t have a barbeque stick or would rather use something else consider using thick twine or pipe cleaners! Both would work just as well. Offer many colors of felt paper so your kids can make colorful fun Christmas trees, no need to stick with just red and green.

As for beads, make sure you have TONS of options! Dollar stores and crafting stores also sell really nice Christmas themed beads! Glitter glue may be messy but it also adds sparkle and is so much fun for kids to use!

This is the perfect opportunity to let kids go wild and create little masterpieces that will look amazing hanging on your Christmas tree!
