Ice Cream Cone Christmas Trees {An Easy Kids Craft Idea}

Looking for an easy craft idea for toddlers and kids? These ice cream cone Christmas trees are a fun holiday activity, and make a darling centerpiece for your table!

My kids love Christmas crafting. And if the craft involves icing and candy pieces, all the better!

I had this ice cream cone Christmas tree craft ready to go one day after school this week, and they were so excited to make them!

These ice cream cone Christmas trees are a great classroom project, or make them at home and use them as holiday decor around your home! Mine are being used as a colorful and fun dining room table centerpiece!

Here’s what you need to make your own ice cream cone Christmas trees:

  • Sugar Ice Cream Cones
  • Green Icing (I had white icing that I added green food coloring to)
  • Assorted Candies

I put out an assortment of candies, sprinkles and flake coconut (which looks like snow)!

First, have your kids spread icing on the ice cream cones. I found that a thicker layer of icing helps the candies stick to the cones better. 

Then, let your kids decorate to their heart’s content! There’s no wrong way to make these, and kids from toddler age on up will enjoy decorating their cones (and sampling the goods along the way).
