This is a simple craft designed for younger children for a Maulidur Rasul program we are about to have in our local masjid here in Calgary. Since we are working with many children, I have designed templates that will allow us to precut all parts. That will leave just the assembling of the actual tree on the day of the program.
1. Print the tree trunk template below.
Trace the shape onto a card stock. I used a cereal box.
Cut out the trunk and the stand part. Cut along the dotted line. Slide the two pieces in the opposite direction to create a 3D tree.
You can colour the trunk with markers as I did.
2. Print the names to go on the family tree below.
You can print these straight onto a card stock if you prefer.
Cut out the names, colour if you want to and glue to the branches of the tree. In the finished tree below I have just used randomly cut pieces with names written on them as this was my test craft.
I have also included two extra circles in the template for those who want to add on.
3. Decorate tree with more leaves just randomly cut from a green construction paper.
The finished tree.
