Chubbie Cubbie's Tree Activities

Activity name:
Decorate a Tree

Materials needed:
Green Construction Paper or Green Tissue Paper in several shades
White Glue or Glue Sticks
Scissors
Brown Crayons

Preparation:
Draw an outline of a tree without leaves.  Cut leaf shapes or small circle or square shapes from either the construction paper or the tissue paper.

Carrying out the activity:
Have children color their tree then have them glue the "leaves" on their trees.


Activity name:
Pinecone Trees

Materials needed:
Whole Pinecones
Water
Large Sponge
Grass Seed
Saucer or Shallow Bowl Wide Enough for the Sponge.

Preparation:
Cut a small hole in the center of the sponge.  Place the sponge in the saucer or bowl.  Place the pinecone in the hole.

Carrying out the activity:
Have the children sprinkle their pinecone with grass seed.  Next have them pour water into the saucer so that it is level with the top of the sponge.  Place in a safe and sunny location.  Check the sponge every few days to ensure that it stays moist.  Refill saucers with water as necessary.  In a short time the grass will sprout.


Activity name:
Celery Trees

Materials needed:
Celery Stalks with Leaves Attached
Several Vases or Tall Glasses
Water
Green Food Coloring

Preparation:
Fill vase or glass 3/4 full with water. Add enough food color to make a reasonably dark tint. Cut bottom of celery stalk at an angle.

Carrying out the activity:
Have the children place a celery stalk in colored water. Place in a safe place. The stalk will absorb the colored water and tint the celery (usually overnight).
