This super-easy holiday art project is great for kids of all ages and can be done with supplies you might already have at home.
Tip: If you don’t have holiday-hued paints, use bright colors or whatever you have on hand. You’ll be surprised at how sleek your modern masterpiece turns out!
- Two pieces of paper
- Green and silver paints (or your choice of colors)
- Clear adhesive tape
- Cut out an evergreen tree shape from a piece of paper and secure it to a larger piece of paper using loops of tape.
- Have your child paint over and around his or her tree using green and silver paints. No need to be neat here—in fact, the messier, the better!
- Carefully peel off the tree and tape to reveal a striking negative-space image.
