We made Christmas tree paper pillows in preschool

This simple Christmas tree was made by our four year olds.

The children started by coloring and decorating two green construction paper Christmas tree shapes.

Next, they stapled the two trees together leaving a little hole for stuffing…

Next, the children gathered two tissues and wadded them up…

And then the children stuffed the tissue into the open end of the tree…

Once the tissue was inside the tree, the remaining hole was stapled closed…

And they had their very own Christmas pillow!

    What a neat idea! I did this once for an under the sea display, we had 3D dolphins etc hanging down.
