It’s that time of year where you start sending out Christmas cards, the kids will soon be home for Christmas break, and you reflect back on the last year.
I put a lot of thought into a craft you and I can do with our kids that is thought-provoking and fun — a fun evergreen Christmas-tree-shaped questionnaire for the kids. It’s called an ever-growing tree, get it? I crack myself up sometimes. 🙂 The goal was to include deeper questions that would help the kids think back on the year and remember the fun they had with the family, the things they accomplished, and feel good about life and growing up instead of general, “What is your favorite color?” type questions.
You can download the free printable here. It’s a two-page PDF with straight lines to make it quick and easy to cut out. You fill in the questions, color it, place the triangles in order, staple it, and add the trunk and star. Great class party craft or something to send to the grandparents. It’d be fun to draw on ornaments or add stickers as ornaments for Christmas, too.
After cutting out your pieces and stacking your trees triangles together, staple the pieces together right at the dotted line. Fold the top tab back at the dotted line before gluing the star in place. This makes it easier to turn the pages.
This is my son. He’s the one who answered that he’s good at (playing) tag, being nice, and playing with his sister. I do agree that he is great at these things. I loved seeing my kids’ answers. Some of them surprised me. I love that it’s in their handwriting too. It’s a fun keepsake for more reasons than one. I hope ya’ll like this one! Thanks for dropping in.
