Paper Plate Craft: Christmas Trees

Skills – fine motor, counting, identification of small, medium, and large

Materials – construction paper, glue stick, scissors, paper plate, ruler, markers or crayons

Using a ruler, draw cutting lines on the paper plate, dividing it into thirds. The thirds must not be the same size, however. You will need a small, medium and large section. Each portion should look like a large triangle with a rounded bottom.

Have you child identify the largest section, decorate it with markers and glue, point side up, onto the construction paper. Repeat this process with the medium sized piece, gluing it above the large piece. Complete the tree with the smallest section glued above the medium portion.
