This is such a great idea for those of you who have little hands in the house that like to tamper with the pretty DO NOT TOUCH tree…or even for those of you who have very little space such as an apartment. It is very inexpensive to make and to top it off VERY easy and fast! So you have no excuse!
My lil girl LOVEs this, and it is even educational. She is 18 months and we had no idea she knew her colors, she is barely talking. But we asked her to bring the blue one…she did and we thought wow what a coincidence. Then we asked for the green one…she got it wow a super coincidence. Then we asked for the purple one…yup she brought it! No coincidence there! So all that coloring and saying the name of the color has paid off, and now this is educational too!
I saw the idea on Pinterest of course, here is the link i used http://www.solandrachel.com/2011/12/pinterest-christmas.html
You will need:
A yard or so of green felt (depending on how big you want your tree.
a nice array of the felt squares you get at the fabric/craft store
a hot glue gun and glue sticks for it
a chalk pencil or something to outline the shapes with
and about a half hour of time.
