In theBso beeNathalie Mensink the children have been working on their own Christmas tree making pasta. The 1st version is done with a glue gun and therefore more suitable for children from group 5 /6. The paste used here are so-called butterfly bows paste. It is convenient to make a case of sturdy paper/cardboard so that you have a cone. Here you build the Christmas tree layer by layer. Once built up, give the tree a green paint over the bows. After that, you can decorate the tree with beads, buttons, remnants of Christmas decorations etc. You can make a star out of cardboard and around it make an edge. Fill up the star with sequins and glitters!
The Christmas tree is ready! You can make a thin strand with LED lights around it.
For the next pasta tree you mainly use fusilli and macaroni. Nice because of the different structures/shapes. Starting point is a drawn Christmas tree shape, which is edited/pasted with paste with ordinary cuddle glue.
And also this little tree children can start painting afterwards!
