7 Kids’ Christmas Tree Ideas
Dreaming of a White Christmas Tree

Use polyester fiber stuffing and drape it around the tree, to look like fluffy snow. Kids will love making their own tree that brings the beauty of winter indoors!
A Toy Land Christmas
Kids are all about toys at Christmas, so why not theme a tree that’s only decorated with toys! The best part? This Christmas tree can be decorated with items you already have at home. Tuck your child’s toys among the branches. You can also use toy-themed ornaments such as nutcrackers, reindeer, toy soldiers, and plush ornaments like felt angels. Little ones will feel as though they’ve been transported to Toyland! This Christmas tree brings in an element of whimsy and fun for the winter season.
Handmade Accents Tree
Have fun making handmade Christmas decorations! This Christmas tree will be covered with handmade treasures you can keep for years to come. Children can craft stars and little Santa hats out of felt and cotton balls. Make rustic snowflake ornaments from backyard twigs glued together and silver paint. Craft snowmen from marshmallows glued together and draw their faces with marker. It’s so fun making your own ornaments! But the best part is spending quality time together as a family. Have the best time making memories at home.
Family Photo Tree
Decorate this Christmas tree with photo ornaments and favorite pictures. Every time you look at the tree, you can relive your favorite family memories. Personalized ornaments are perfect Christmas gifts you can use to decorate every year! Create a unique ornament for every Christmas so you can remember some of your best moments—a baby’s 1st Christmas, a favorite family vacation, or your child’s Christmas photo with Santa.
Tree of Children’s Books
If you’re a family of avid readers, create a book tree of your favorite children’s books and personalized books. You can tuck the books among the tree branches or skip the traditional tree altogether and create a tree pyramid of just books. Every night leading up to Christmas, choose a book from the tree and read it before bedtime. A magical Christmas book like A Christmas Dream for Me will soothe children at night with sweet Christmas dreams! Kids can also snuggle with the matching plush polar bear.
Gingerbread House Tree
Dress up your Christmas tree like a gingerbread house! This festive tree idea is sweet enough to eat—and by using edible ornaments, kids can enjoy a sweet treat right from a tree branch! Decorate this kids’ Christmas tree like a deconstructed gingerbread house. Bake gingerbread squares (with a hole for hanging), frost them like windows, and hang with string. Bake gingerbread people and hang them on the branches. Spear gumdrops onto toothpicks and hang on the branches like icicles. Nestle candy canes and lollipops among the tree branches. Kids will love this delicious tree they can snack on all winter!
ABC Kids’ Alphabet Tree
Help children learn the alphabet with a Christmas tree that displays every letter! This kids’ Christmas tree is fun and educational. Help little ones cut out letters of the alphabet from colorful construction paper. Decorate the letters with glitter, stickers, and markers. Then hang every letter on a tree branch. Try using this tree to practice letters at home and come up with Christmas-themed words that begin with that letter: S is for Santa, R is for reindeer, and so on!
Help kids showcase their creativity with these children’s Christmas tree ideas! There’s nothing like decorating together to get you in the holiday spirit. We hope these Christmas tree ideas help you make even more holiday memories.
