Christmas Wish Tree

A simple, colourful craft for kids.

Create a Christmas tree by gluing colourful strips of paper to a white back-drop. Have the children brainstorm a list of presents they would like to receive for Christmas. Each child should write what presents they want from Santa on the coloured strips. Have a discussion about what is “naughty” and “nice”. Ask the children what kind of behavior would earn a present from Santa.
