Ready for a FREE Christmas activity for kids? Grab this Q-tip tree painting FREE Printable and create Christmas dot painting art projects that kids love doing! 

We are just a week away from Christmas break, which means my kids will be home and bouncing off the walls with excitement! That’s equal parts fun and terrifying for me, my kids have a lot of energy. 

I try to combat the Christmas hyper vibes with some fun structured activities both out of the house and at home. Fun Christmas crafts for kids or Christmas art projects keep kids entertained and help us keep things balanced and less stressful. Not to mention a free Christmas activity is always a welcome idea in our home!

Q-tip Painting

We have fallen in love with q-tip art this year, and a Christmas dot painting felt in order! If you haven’t heard of these, essentially one fills in the dot painting by using a Q-tip. It’s like a kind friendly pointillism (that I know many teens and adults enjoy too)! 

It’s really easy, it’s really cheap to gather supplies if you don’t already have them. But best of all, it’s a really FUN Christmas dot painting project that encourages creativity! 

And we have you covered with two versions of a Q-tip tree painting template perfect for younger or older kids!
