One of our favorite books has been Mr. Willowby’s Christmas Tree. I love how the big tree always gets smaller. I also love that you see how each tree id different but unique along the way!

The mix of watercolors and oil pastels has been a favorite for us the last few months. We love how the oil pastels don’t love the watercolor in. It is really fun to do.

How we made our Christmas Trees

We started by drawing out the shape of our Christmas tree on the watercolor paper. I love seeing how different we all make the trees. We each took our time doing it. We also had to make sure we left room for the star at the top and the trunk of the tree.

We then colored in our Christmas lights with oil pastels. They are fun to use and easy for loads of activities. Plus work great when using with watercolors. We marked out lights all over the tree.

The last thing we did was paint our Christmas tree with glitter watercolors and regular watercolors if they wanted. It is always fun to see how the oil pastels stick out as we paint.
