We painted the puzzle pieces (8 per tree) with green acrylic paint in advance (works best when the puzzle is assembled) and then the kids stuck them on with glue dots. The star is a sticker, and the trunk is drawn and colored with brown marker.

Hanging Christmas tree (adapted from a craft by library volunteer Louise Schmoll): Cut (from green cardstock) 2 each of 6 triangles of progressively larger size (see picture) plus one trapezoid for the base. Arrange the triangles on a string, with space in between the different sizes, and glue the duplicates together, catching the string in the middle.

Duct tape bookmarks: We cut rectangular strips of cardstock in advance, slightly larger than our Ellison bookmark die. The kids covered the rectangles with fancy duct tape and then pressed out the Ellison bookmark. They loved to work the lever on the Ellison machine!

Painted candles: each kid got one candle and a thin kabob stick. For the candy cane candles, the kids scraped stripes on the red candles, then retraced the grooves with the same stick covered in white acrylic paint. For the polka dot candles, the kids poked dots into the white candles, then re-poked the holes with the same stick covered in acrylic paint of various colors, one color at a time.
