Enjoy some screen-free festive fun with these Christmas finger painting ideas! Grab the FREE Christmas tree finger painting download for a free Christmas craft for kids! 


We love easy low-key arts and crafts projects for kids. They give my kids a chance to enjoy some screen-free creativity and enjoy artistic expression! I love them because it’s easy and fun! And, admittedly, they force me to keep a close eye on my kids around paint and give them a lot of attention, and my kids soak it up! 

Washable paints and placing a paper bag under the project help me feel comfortable letting even toddlers paint. It’s particularly fun to feel festive and do holiday-themed projects. And all it takes is the right project or template to help facilitate this very activity!

Christmas Finger Painting Ideas: 

Here are several ideas to enjoy the Christmas Tree finger painting download and make it more fun! 

  • Fit a fingerprint bulb on each small line on the squiggle. 
  • Come up with a unique color scheme and create it on the tree! 
  • Do a monochromatic tree mixing one color with black, white, or even yellow to make various shades. Enjoy a fun monochromatic tree! 
  • Fill in the areas between the lines entirely. Try to create your own branches or ornament fill so there isn’t any white space.

  • Print multiple prints, and create a Christmas tree farm. 
  • Try different paint application techniques: stamp with fingerprints, draw lines with fingers, shade colors together, etc. Get creative! 
  • Use an element besides traditional paint. Shaving cream paint or frosting make great alternatives and mix up Christmas finger painting ideas in a big way! 

There’s no wrong way to do it! Whatever helps you and your little people connect and enjoy some holiday fun is all the matter!
