I’m always looking for fun crafts to do with Lucas – and the holidays give me that extra push to do something he’ll really enjoy – and it’s something that I can keep forever, bringing out every year until he is well past 30!
Painting is big in our house right now and Lucas loves to “dab.” I thought Pom Painting would be the perfect activity for him. Hopefully your little one will enjoy it too!
What you’ll need:
- Construction Paper
- Paint (I used red, blue and yellow)
- Empty egg carton (or something else to hold the paint)
- A pen
First, fold your construction paper in half lengthwise and draw half of a Christmas tree along the folded edge (I am SO not an artist!).
And cut out your tree(s).
Clip a pom with your clothes pin. I matched the pom color with the paint because Lucas is super into naming colors right now (and hearing him say “yell-yow” is just precious!).
Next, place some paint in the cups of the egg carton.
Use the pom, dipped in paint, to create “ornaments” on your tree. Lucas LOVED this part! Look at that concentration.
Once your paint has dried, glue a yellow pom to the top of your tree as as star.
Lucas was so proud of his finished product. And this was an easy but fun craft for us to do together!
What are you creating with your little one’s this holiday season? I’d love to see what you’ve been working on. Share in the comments!
