I cut out a tree from green felt and then circles, triangles, and squares from the colors of the rainbow plus black and white. (You could also use paper and glue this little tree together if you'd like.)
The great thing is we can play this game again and again. And the little felt shapes were a great fine motor activity for her as well. She was very proud of the tree she decorated!
Can you tell from her outfit that she adores purple and pink!?
Older kid adaptation:
-Isaac (almost 4) enjoyed making a face with the ornaments on his Christmas tree. He also made up a story about how his tree scares away animals...a fun creative thinking activity!
