In our house, an absolute favorite book is Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr and John Archambault. And now the book is a favorite for my kids, too! If you’ve never heard of it, check it out. Whether this is your first time reading it or it’s already one of your favorites, try these fun learning activities that your kids will love!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
