Easy 3D Handprint Christmas Tree Craft
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! *Crunch*
Wait a sec. *Crunch*
That’s not snow crunching beneath my feet. *Crunch*
Ugh! There seems to be a- *Crunch*
….another cereal explosion on my floor. *Crunch*
My toddler is at it again! She’s making it snow this holiday season with yet another toddler mess. Moms, can you feel me? But I’d much rather see the snow outside of my window then inside of it! That’s why we are making it snow today with this adorable Easy 3D Handprint Christmas Tree Craft. This easy and unique holiday keepsake can be made easily with your child’s handprint and a little holiday inspiration. Ready to make some Christmas magic at home?
What You Will Need:
- Green Construction Paper
- Green Foam Cone
- Hot Glue
1. Using the green construction paper and pencil, trace your child’s hand – enough to make about 20-25 handprints. Feel free to layer the paper for quicker cutting prep.
2. Take the finger tips of your handprints and curl them around the end of the pencil, to give your tree a nice shape.
3. Now we are going to glue the handprints onto our cone trees. Glue each handprint onto the cone, fingertips downward and on a slight angle. Overlap each handprint to cover the cone completely and give your tree more depth and shape. Allow to dry.
4. Glue pom-poms, use glitter glue, etc. to personalize your Christmas tree! Let your child’s creativity shimmer and shine!

Toddler Clean Up Tips
- Avoid overload- You are super mom, but your #1 job isn’t cleaning. Don’t make the huge goal of trying to get the whole house clean in one day with a toddler in tow. You’ll just get overwhelmed. Start with a small goal and the right frame of mind.
- Keep it simple – Focus on one task, one room, one job to get done at a time. If you get it done, great! If not, don’t stress. You are a busy multi-tasking mom!
- Enlist help – There’s NOTHING that is more fun than a toddler that enjoys clean up! From dusting to picking up toys, I even let my girl help with the hand vacuuming!
