Time for some more easy Christmas Crafts for Preschoolers. Today we share how to make a Paper Plate Christmas Tree Twirler.
Easy and fun! This is one of many of our Paper Plate Twirler Crafts for kids.
This fabulous Paper Plate Twirlers were first shared in October 2017
It is paper plate twirler time again. You guys adore the fabulous Autumn Tree Twirlers (with it’s lovely falling leaves – great for adding Thankfulness messages to), that it is now time for a, yes you guessed it, Paper Plate Christmas Tree Whirligig.
I my daughter says this is her favourite.. well, we ALL love Christmas, right? And this 3d Christmas Tree for Kids to make is just adorable and so so sooooo easy. Love everything about it. Just so fun. This Christmas Tree Twirlers make great kids’ room decorations or classroom decorations.
I think that this would be a great collaborative project too – you can spend as little or as long as you want on the Paper Baubles hanging from the Paper Plate Tree – either cut some colourful circles (like we did) or use toddler paintings or get everyone to design one in detail. You can even hang “photo baubles” from your Christmas Whirligig!! One simple Paper Plate craft, so many options! This is a fabulous Christmas Craft for Preschoolers and Tots

As mentioned, you could also use photos to make your paper baubles or you could make 3D Paper Baubles – make this as simple or as “extended” as you like. If your baubles take longer to make, then these Christmas Tree Whirligigs make great collaborative projects too – get a team of kids in the classroom or a siblings to work together.
