A DIY Way to Take Holiday Fun to the Next level
Over the years, I've learned (often the hard way) a very important lesson about keeping the holiday season fun with kids.
I won't hold you in suspense 😉 That lesson is this: The simpler, the better.
And another lesson on top of that: DIY beats expensive and fancy!
Why does simple and DIY win out among our children? According to my boys, it's because when we keep it simple and DIY, it means that I'm spending quality time with my kids. And creating precious memories that last for many years.
I find that refreshing - and relieving because that means that I don't have to spend a ton of money. But, that does mean that I need to find (or create) DIY ways to enjoy holiday fun with my kids.
This year, I'm adding a few DIY craft activities to our holiday fun collection. My boys and I are looking forward to making these super cute hot cocoa mugs (get your free printable pack here!), as well as this color/build-your-own gingerbread house activity.
Oh, and this printable 3D Christmas Tree Template pack (with 2 styles) is top of our holiday fun list!

Simple Ways to Boost the Creativity with These 3D Paper Crafts
Take it from me - you'll want a variety of coloring tools for your kids to pick from, like crayons, color pencils, and fine-tip markers. These different tools creative fantastic textures and results.
You may even want to include some glue and glitter for a special touch!
Also, I suggest printing these 3D Christmas trees on white cardstock. Regular printer paper works fine. Cardstock adds durability (which can be helpful around the holidays, especially with all the excitement!).
Please print out as many of these Christmas trees as you need to enjoy with your kids, class, or co-op.
Before your kids create their 3D Christmas tree, they can add a special holiday message. Simply use a pencil, pen, or fine-tip marker on the blank side of the tree.
Consider adding a small star or other tree topper to the top of the tree. Cut out a star shape out of construction paper (and add glitter glue) or glitter paper and use glue stick to attach.
You can also use pom poms or small stickers (like foam star stickers) for your own little decorations.

Tips & Tricks for Enjoying These 3D Holiday Crafts with Your Kids
With a bit of preparation, your children will have a blast making these simple holiday crafts.
Gather all of the suggested materials prior to starting the craft. It's so much easier and less stressful that way!
Prepare your work area. In our house, that means clearing off any unnecessary items (usually Legos, puzzle pieces, and books).
Look at your schedule and pick a day when you'll have plenty of time to enjoy this type of 3D craft.
Also, take it slow. There's no need to rush! Enjoy this time with your kids.
I find it extremely helpful to go over our "fun activity rules and expectations" with my boys. If you have younger kids, you can help with assembling the final products.
My #1 tip: Keep it relaxed and fun! There is no perfect or mistakes. You can transform your Christmas trees into special creations no matter what 😊
