Christmas-Tree Gift Container

Hide little gifts—Blow-Straw Game, crayons, candy or small cookies, tiny stuffed animals, jewelry—under this Christmas tree. To make tree, you will need: large circle of green lightweight cardboard, pencil, ruler, scissors, glue, tiny candy canes or other individually wrapped candies, and yarn.

  1. Use ruler to lightly draw line from center of circle to outside edge; cut along line.

  2. Form cone, and glue overlapping edges (see illustration). Let dry thoroughly.

  3. Glue on wrapped-candy ornaments and yarn “tinsel.”
