Step 2:

Cut your two Christmas trees out of foam using a craft knife or a sharp pair of scissors. Young children should ask an adult for help

Step 3:

You should now have two foam Christmas trees in 2D, one with a wedge at the top, one with a wedge at the bottom.

Step 4:

Use the wedges cut into each section of the tree to interlock them, leaving you with one 3D foam Christmas tree.

Step 5:

Cut a star out of bright yellow craft foam to put at the top of the tree. Use your imagination to think of any other decorations you want and cut them out of brightly coloured craft foam. You might try baubles, lights, little angels - let your imagination run wild!

Step 6:

Use craft glue to attached your your craft ornaments to your Christmas tree. Decorate it all over with pom poms, and finish the the big gold star at the top of the tree. Congratulations! Your craft Christmas tree is complete! This activity is available in a takeaway PDF at the below.
