Handprint Christmas Tree Craft for Preschoolers
Christmas will be here before we know it. It is one of our favorite times of the year to bring out the paint and get creative. Download our free handprint Christmas tree craft below and create a wonderful keepsake.
Both the kids and you will enjoy creating this Christmas tree with handprints. Then they can color in the presents and the star at the bottom and top of the tree.
If you love handprint crafts I think you will also love our alphabet handprint series. This is such a fun way to learn the alphabet.

Christmas Tree Handprint
You probably have all of the supplies to make this super cute Christmas tree handprint.
- cardstock (or if you want to print it on colored paper we love this colorful cardstock)
- washable paints
- coloring pens
- Wipes!! It helps to have these handy so you don’t make a complete mess of your table!
How to use the Christmas tree handprint template:
Print out the template below, it will print out on one full page and will print out in portrait. Make sure to check the printer settings.
This Christmas tree template printable is free to print but is for personal and classroom use only. Scroll to the bottom of the post and add your email address to get the pdf file.
You can of course print this on normal printer paper, but with all of our crafts, they always look better on cardstock.
Grab the supplies above and get creating!
Let the kids decide what color handprints they want to use, but of course, green is the traditional color!
Covering both hands in either the same color or slightly different shades of green would look amazing. Place their hands facing down from the bottom of the star and place one slightly on top of the other, so their fingers just reach the presents at the bottom of the tree.
This could either be done with 2 or 3 handprints (depending on the size of their hands!) Press down all along their hand to make sure the handprint transfers fully.
Pull the child’s hands up carefully, ensuring you don’t smudge the handprints.
Let it dry completely before coloring the presents and the star.
