Washi Tape Christmas Trees: Easy Kid's Craft

If you  are looking for a fun, quick, and easy Christmas craft to do with your kiddos, look no further! It doesn't get cuter or easier than these Washi Tape Christmas Trees!
Start with a print out of a Christmas tree outline, some colorful washi tape, and scissors.
 Let your kiddo cut out the Christmas tree, 
 then give them a couple of rolls of washi tape and let them get busy covering the whole tree.
 They can do a solid color tree, 
 make a pattern, or just decorate it randomly. 
 I let my boys cover their tree on our kitchen table making sure to go all the way {and past in some cases} to the edges...the beauty of washi tape is that is isn't so sticky that it leaves a mess if it sticks to furniture {or kids or clothes}.
 When they are done covering the whole tree, simply peel it up, turn it over, and trim off the excess tape.
 Showing off their Christmas trees!
 Laughing at the silly dogs who photo-bombed us:)
 These would be really cute framed, strung up together to make a garland, or even sent to friends and family in the mail! So break out the washi tape and get busy making some cute and easy Christmas trees!

I have a love affair with washi tape. We made washi tape candy corn for Halloween :) I love these trees.
I'd love to have you link it at my link party!
