You’ll Need:

* Green construction paper
* Crayons, markers, or tempera paint
* Scissors
* Clear tape

Directions:

Fold a piece of green construction paper in half, then cut it in half. Put the two pieces together, and fold them in half again. Draw half an evergreen tree opposite the fold. Cut along the line – you should get two identical trees. Fold the trees in half, just barely creasing the center line (this is to mark the center of the tree). Cut a slit along the bottom half of the center of one tree and along the top half of the center of the other tree. Slip the two trees together along the slits.
Using clear tape, tape the bottoms and tops together (pieces of tape on the bottom and at the top make the tree stand up well and stop the slit ends from flopping over).

Draw some pine cones on your tree if you’d like.

For a bigger tree: Start with two pieces of green construction paper, and fold them so they make a long, thin rectangle. Draw a tree opposite the fold. The rest of the instructions are the same.
