Christmas Tree Shapes




We made Christmas trees out of different shapes for a craft/learning activity.

First I cut out 3 of each shape in different sizes: Triangles, Circles, Squares, Diamonds, Ovals, Rectangles.
Then I let LM glue them on the paper from biggest to smallest.
We added star stickers on top and a brown tree trunk on the bottom.

Hi Linda,

We loved these shape Christmas trees and featured them at our blog, Preschool Lesson Plans!

You can find the full article here:

We were sure to give idea/photo credit, as well as a link back to your blog, but we'd love for you to take a look. If there are any problems, we'll be sure to take the feature down immediately!

Thanks so much,

and your older son could work on his cutting skills if you traced/drew the shapes for him (alot of kindergarten is cutting & glueing!)
