You're essentially making a Christmas Tree with popsicle sticks. The buttons are the ornaments. All you need is buttons, popsicle sticks, glue, and markers. This Christmas craft is not only easy and fun for toddlers, but it also helps them develop their fine motor skills.
I love this idea and you could easily make a star too. I've got tons of buttons, popsicle sticks and paint. We even have glitter! I think we will be doing these this weekend. We are always looking for ornament ideas.
