This cute, inexpensive Christmas tree craft can be used in a variety of ways in your therapy sessions, such as ordering by size, sequencing, and following directions. You can also use it as a reinforcement activity by rewarding students with tree pieces or by letting them add an ornament for each turn.
What you need:
- Paper plates (1 plate will make 2 trees)
- Craft stick (1 for each tree)
- Green crayons
- Markers or stickers for ornaments
What to do:
- Cut the paper plates in half and then cut each half into three different size wedges (small, medium, large)
- Have the students color the pieces with a green crayon
- Glue the three plate pieces together with the largest on the bottom, the medium size next, and the smallest piece on top.
- Once dry enough to handle, glue the craft stick to the back of the tree, leaving some of the stick below the tree as a trunk.
- Once dry, let the students add ornaments to the tree with markers, stickers, or stamps.
