Cut out the shapes 


If your child is pretty good with scissors, you can draw the shapes on the paper for them to cut out. Or you can cut them out yourself.

Piece together the tree


First, let them use a glue stick to put glue on the back of the shape. Start with the tree trunk, then the leaves, and finally the coconuts.

Piece together the tree


As they are working on putting their shapes together, you can offer as much guidance as you think is needed. Here’s our example of assisted vs unassisted.

Add the ABCs


Finally, you’ll have them add the alphabet stickers to their tree. Again, you can offer as much or as little assistance as you see fit for this step.

The final product 

Like many activities we do here, the final product isn’t nearly as important as the process and what they learned while doing it. You can even cut around the tree for a cleaner look.
