12 Days of Christmas Tree
We made this fun 12 days of Christmas Tree to hang up in our house to help our son learn the popular Christmas song. I also thought it would give us a great opportunity to work on counting and number recognition.
You can do a google image search for "12 days of Christmas"and come up with all sorts of pictures you can print. Ours came from http://www.12days.com/library/12dayscoloringbook/default.htm
Things you will need: scissors, crayons, printables, green and yellow construction paper, glue
It took a couple of sittings for him to finish the coloring...
While he colored, I made the tree by glueing together 4 pieces of green construction paper. Then I folded, started at the bottom and wiggled my way up the the point at the top.
For the star, I drew the star...
folded it in half....
After he was done coloring most of the pictures, I cut them out and started at the top and glued each picture on. I then took a sharpie and wrote the number on each picture.
He loves going to look at his work, trying to sing the song and laughs hysterically at "5 golden rings". Its been a fun project, that I plan to save and pull out each year!
