We decided to make this a 3-D project and broke out the fun crafting bins. We used foam circle stickers, small pom poms for the little ones, beads for the older kids, and pasta.
I noticed with the Littles they were having a hard time simply decorating the tree freely, so I turned it into a counting activity. I told them how many of each material I needed. They really enjoyed it!
With the Bigs, I told them I needed AT LEAST the same numbers of items as the what the Littles put on their trees, but that was all the direction they needed. It was great seeing the trees come together!
We displayed these projects on the closet door next to the front door, so each child got to show off their trees to any visitors!
We will also be doing this project using the Wax Paper Art Technique as is suggested on the project page. I'll definitely post pictures once it's finished!
Stay tuned! Planning MANY more Christmas projects this week!
