Durning naps, I got to work tracing and cutting and glueing, and came up with this:
So far it's a huge hit!!! The kids love it and they can play with it independently. And I'm hoping it will help keep their hands off the real one when we finally get it :)
What you need:
a large piece of green felt for the tree
felt in various patterns for the ornaments
various sizes of round things for tracing the ornaments
hot glue and gun (optional)
What to do:
1. Cut the tree from the large green felt. You can make it a more detailed tree, but I just cut out a triangle.
2. Trace the round things on the felt pieces
3. Cut out the ornaments
4. You can use a hot glue gun to glue the bows on the presents and make 3D ornaments.
5. Put up the tree (I used 3M velcro. The kind that has the pull tab so it doesn't damage the walls) The felt sticks to the velcro.
6. Decorate the tree!!!
