Looking for a fun activity for your toddlers and kids? They will love to decorate their own Christmas Trees with this FREE printable cut & Glue activity page.
The other day my 4 year old came to me and said “Mom, I want to do a gluing activity.”
I said “Okay, what do you want to glue?”
She said a pumpkin.
So we cut and pasted a pumpkin even though it is the middle of the summer. And today we did something even sillier, we made a Christmas tree.
Christmas in July, people!
The truth is though, Christmas is always fun, and cut and glue activities have been a favorite around here lately!
What we love about Cut & Glue crafts:
- They made great fine motor skill practice!
- They help kids learn how to use scissors safely
- My kids love to use glue whenever I allow them to
- They are quick to set up but keep the kids busy for a while!
- Each child’s creation will look different, which is pretty fun.
Who is this activity for?
I designed this cut and glue activity for kids who have beginner to intermediate cutting skills. Preschoolers might need some help, but early elementary and up should have no problems with this activity.
This craft is great for homeschool, regular school, or stay-inside rainy days.
Teachers, feel free to use this as a teaching resource.

How to make your cut-and-glue Christmas Tree craft
- Download the free Christmas Tree Printable PDF by clicking on it below.
- Print the page at 100% scale, making sure nothing is cut off. (I recommend printing a test page before printing a bunch if you have multiples)
- Cut out the Christmas Tree, Star, Angel, Lights, Bells, and Candy cane elements. (Or let your kids cut them out, of course!)
- Arrange the decorations on the Christmas tree however you want!
- Glue the decorations to the tree.
Here are two tips to make this project even easier:
- Glue the Christmas tree to another piece of paper to act as a background, if you want! You could draw presents underneath.
- If you are using a bottle of glue and your kids are having a hard time squeezing it, pour some glue into a paper cup or bowl and supply them with a few Q-Tips to use a glue brushes! (This is what we always do since my toddler’s fingers just can’t squeeze hard enough!)
I hope you enjoy this craft, we definitely had fun with it at our house! Make sure to check out the Halloween Jack O Lantern Printable As well!
