Fold your A4 green card in half. Draw a triangle on the folded card.

Cut out the two triangles at once.

Cut out stars for the top of the tree and squares for the base. I always fold my card in half and cut two at once – this way, they’re always the same size!

Decorate the green Christmas trees with Playon crayons. Younger children can draw stripes, spots or wiggly lines while older children can draw Christmas decorations like lights, tinsel, bells, baubles, flowers or stars.
