Christmas Tree Greeting Card

Toddlers and preschoolers will love using this spin art painting technique to make a DIY Christmas greeting card. Each toddler made Christmas tree card will be totally unique and the patterns created by the paint are really effective. It's a great activity to introduce 2D shapes to toddlers as the tree is made up of a triangle with a rectangle pot and star on the top.

Christmas tree greeting card for toddlers


Cut a few pieces of green card into circle shapes so they fit inside the salad spinner.  You will need one circle of green card for each Christmas tree greeting card you would like to make. Put one piece of card into the salad spinner and squirt some green and gold paint on top of it.

Each card will be totally unique.  Have fun experimenting with adding different amounts of paint and placing the green and gold in different places.

Once you are happy with the amount of paint you have added place the salad spinner lid on tightly and spin...spin...spin! This part is really fun.

When you have finished spinning take the lid off and sprinkle a bit of gold glitter over the paint. I love all the different patterns we created.

Once dry cut the card into triangle shapes and stick them onto a piece of green card folded in half.
