Even young kids can do this one and it takes less than 10 minutes from start to finish. It’s the perfect fast craft for a weekend or day off of school.

Dot Marker Christmas Tree Lights Craft

This adorable craft is so easy even toddlers can do it! Older kids will be just as engaged, too.

If you have dot markers and some construction paper, you have everything you need already.

We love using dot markers because they are washable and don’t dry out. They are a fun alternative to paints and regular markers!

Materials:

Directions:

Step 1:

Child creating art with dot markers.

Let your kids make a bunch of dots onto a piece of white paper. Preschoolers and toddlers will love this stage.

Depending on the age of the child, you may need to let them step out for a bit while you do step two.

Step 2:

Step 4:

Cut a tree out from green construction paper.
