Create a Christmas Tree Puppet

Here's an easy, crafty activity for your little one: print out this Christmas tree puppet printable and glue or tape it to a small paper bag. Then, let kids decorate however they want. You can set out markers, crayons, or pencils for decoration, or go multi-dimensional, and provide kids with cotton balls, felt, and other household items to glue on.
