1. Fingerprint Reindeer

14. Pop Up Christmas Tree

Lastly, one for slightly older children. Have a go at creating your very own pop up Christmas tree. Children will be amazed at how they can get this to work, and then decorate the tree as much as they like. A little trickier than our other suggestions, we recommend following this excellent tutorial to make it easier.
