Oh Christmas Tree! Advent countdown – December 10

Button Christmas tree

Oh Christmas Tree!

This is a really cute little Christmas tree, which will help them develop their motor skills as well as making something pretty!

What you need:

Buttons, milk bottle top and pipe cleaner

  • Milk bottle top (with a hole in)
  • Green buttons – different sizes
  • 1/2 a pipe cleaner

How you do it?

Christmas tree threading

  1. Thread the pipe cleaner through the milk bottle top and twist at the bottom to stop it coming back through. This will be the base of your tree
  2. Sort the buttons into size order
  3. Start with the bigger buttons and thread them onto the pipe cleaner
  4. Shape the top of the pipe cleaner into a suitable shape, I went for a star!

Don’t forget you can check out the whole advent countdown on the main blog entry –
