Art & Craft at home with Hurstville Museum & Gallery: Christmas Tree

With the suspension of our Museum & Gallery programs this year, our regular series of kids programs and events have not been able to be run as per usual. Normally, we plan for our programs months in advance and no one could have expected the massive disruptions that 2020 has brought.
 
To help our visitors fulfil their creativity and learning needs (and to put some of the resources that we have in our arts & crafts cupboard to good use) we have started to develop our ‘Art & Craft at home’ kits. These kits are a mixture of free downloadable worksheets using materials you already have at home, to more in-depth activities with a materials kit to purchase. 
 

Our Christmas Tree craft was developed using concepts from our Dragonflies art and craft program. Our Dragonflies programs focus on fostering fine motor skill development through fun and creative arts & craft activities.

Create a crafty Christmas tree for your seasonal decorations, add a personalised touch to your gifts with a creative gift tag and hang your original ornament to your tree.

This kit comes with detailed instructions, a list of materials, and when purchasing the pack, all the materials needed to complete the activity!

We encourage you to participate and learn with your child through these activities, and take the time to explain and demonstrate the process.

This activity is suitable for children aged 4+ years old. 

Activities:

  1. Christmas tree
  2. Gift tag
  3. Tree ornament
