A Christmas tree from cardboard can be made by children of any age. Here we have used a ruler to measure out the tree shape to make it symmetrical, but a younger child might like to draw free hand.
After making a template from paper, we cut out the tree from cardboard. To make the inner tree shape we used kitchen foil.
We decorated with white snowflake sequins and made a base from a strip of cardboard, formed into a triangle.
The lovely thing about working with cardboard is that it is strong and ridged but also can be manipulated.
Use hook and loop dots instead of snowflake sequins. Attach embellishments such as coloured pom poms, pony beads or buttons to the other half of the dots - great fun for a preschool child to decorate the cardboard tree ...over and over again
