Gather all those extra lids from your container drawer. At our house we have at least 3x more lids than containers! 😜

2
Use the craft knife to cut a triangle in the middle of the lid. (after you look back on Pinterest b/c you can't figure out how to use the punch to work through the lip on lid)

Continue to punch holes on two sides of triangle (be sure to remind kiddos to keep them far enough apart from each other and the cut triangle so their is no space for yarn to slip through)

Punch 4-5 holes on two sides of the triangle. Be ready to take over punching b/c little hands get tired punching plastic. 👋🏼

Bring to your mom when you have a full enough tree made from yarn so she can show you how to tie the end of the yarn to the back so it will stay on the back and not slip back through the hole.

If you get tired of pulling the yarn through hand it to your younger sister and have her run one with it...

An example of one w/ all the yarn. (You see how the one hole was too close to the triangle so would not hold yarn in) I got red, green, and white yarn to add color but was reminded trees are green.

If you want to hide the ties in back you can cut some wrapping paper to hot glue over the back. The teacher in me laminated the wrapping paper to help it last a little longer.
