Suggested project uses

This project can be used in the following ways:

  • I used this as a counting activity for the little tots (3 and younger). I told them specific numbers for each material and had them count up to it. They loved it!
  • Christmas Tree Sun Catcher– Trace the template onto a piece of wax paper. Paint the whole tree with glue. Using different colored tissue paper, have you child decorate their tree. Spread glue on a second piece of wax paper and set on top of the tissue paper. Cut out the tree shape. Display in a window. (The neat thing about this project is when the light is on in the room at night, people can still see the decoration and all its color outside!)
  • Whatever you use this project for, remember to proudly display your child’s masterpiece!
