The After-Christmas Tree


Last week we really enjoyed our study of what animals do in the winter. What better time to study it than when we have 6 inches of snow on the ground!?!

One of our favorite activities was making this pine tree decorated with birdseed just like in our story. The children practiced cutting skills by fringing the sides and bottom of a green triangle. 

 Then they glued it to a piece of white paper.

We placed the paper in a cookie sheet and let them drizzle liquid glue all over their tree ( this was their favorite part).

Next they sprinkled birdseed all over the tree and viola...The After Christmas Tree!
